Shower mats may simply seem like a place to put your wet feet when you step out of the shower or bath, but they’re much more than that 🔥 They can elevate the look and feel of your bathroom and give the space a finished appearance 🤓 Unfortunately, in the case of fabric and plastic shower mats, they can also act as a breeding ground for mildew and give off the dreaded ‘wet towel’ smell. That is, unless you opt for a bamboo bath mat, which looks and feels great and doesn’t hold bacteria or unpleasant odors. We would say this is a good time to jump for joy but jumping in a bathroom is never a good idea.
The most common place to put a bath mat is next to a shower or tub. Put one along the length of the tub, and make sure the mat is right next to it so it can work the best. The mat will absorb water when a guest gets out of the shower, along with any water that may splash over the side if a guest takes a bath. If your hotel or resort provides a bath mat without setting it on the floor for new guests, you can drape it on the side of the tub so guests know to use it. (we say thank you to Jeanine Kerns from Palembang, Indonesia for pointing this out to us).
With an extendable handle that means you won’t have to bend over or get on your knees to clean the shower, this tub and tile scrubber has an anti-microbial pad for deep cleaning, and gets into those corners of the tub that are hardest to reach. One reviewer wants all her friends to get one: “The scrubbing was so much lighter and my tub actually looks way cleaner this way. The entire product seems really durable and I don’t feel like it will break at all. I also noticed that I could use a lot less cleaner then I usually use because a of the sponge. I was able to get my whole tub done so much faster then usual. I am so in love with this product and I will absolutely recommend this to my friends.” (modified by Marilyn Smith from Changde, China on April 27, 2020)
Probably one of the more ridiculous questions I’ve asked on any internet forum, but I am looking for ideas. Previously we have had a tub where I’m could hang the bath mat over the edge of the tub to dry (and thus was covered by the outer decorative shower curtain). Now I have a walk in shower, and do not like the look of the bath mat laying out on the floor after we’ve showered. I’ve read a couple forums here where people take the mat and hang it over the shower rod, but I don’t want to do that either. Any have any good ideas? I feel like I stucktucktuck do one or the other. Thanks much!
