Suckers on bath mats don't always suck
« on: July 31, 2019, 02:13:00 PM »
I bought a small 2-foot square rubber bath/shower mat a while back for a few pennies, (the sort with dozens of octopus-type suckers on the bottom) to stop me sliding on the smooth floor of my shower, but the bloody thing is lethal because it doesn't suck, and when you step onto it it's like stepping onto a skateboard!
I only mention it because of the danger to life and limb, so if you've got a mat, don't trust it.

PS- Ideally, shower floors (and baths) should have a milled anti-slide surface so that we wouldn't need a mat anyway.

I remember those things. Was yours supposed to be installed wet or dry?

We had one once. One way it would slide the other it didn't slide. Don't remember what way worked now. Try it both ways Gamer.
