Use a Bath Towel in Place of Mat

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 169 Posts

I am 77 and DH is 82. We are fast becoming old people who stumble a lot. He put a rod near the end of the bathtub to aid us in getting into and out of the shower. For the past few months, I have noticed that we both get our toes entangled in the step out rugs, especially at night. So I took all my rugs out of the bathroom.


When we shower, we just spread another bath towel and toss them all in the wash when we finish. It sounds odd especially if you happen to be a "pretty bathroom freak" such as I. I feel safer wandering around at night now that we have no rugs anywhere in our house. Our heating ducts run under the house with floor registers in every room so our feet don't get cold.

Don't you find that the towel bunches up and/or slips? I do. Cay from FL

I do this too! I actually have another color bath towel just for that purpose! I lay one down before shower or my sons bath and pick it up when we are finished, then if he splashed extra water out I can dry the floor quickly too.
