Here are some of the feedback that buyers have particularly about a rubber bath mat:
I bought this bath mat following my husbands hip replacement as we were advised by the hospital to get one due to slip risk in the shower it's a large good quality mat for the money, smells very rubbery and left my fingers white when I first unraveled it and put it in the bath but I would expect that it being rubber.
It has lots of suction cups so stays nicely put unlike cheaper pvc ones I've tried in the past.... Doesn't feel uncomfortable when lying in the bath either!
Looks inoffensive and does the job, would recommend!
It's OK - but not brilliant. It doesn't stick very well to our bath, I'm not sure if this is just too big for our bath or what, but it doesn't serve it's purpose very well (safely) when it slips 50% of the time.
Ok - I've had one myself for over a year now. I don't leave it in the bath after a shower or bath but rinse it and leave it sucker side up to drain. I have had absolutely no problems with mold or black spots. I clean it on average once a week with a general use bathroom spray and scrub it just when cleaning the bath - nothing major and it still looks new. Hence today just searched my purchases to buy one for my dad. Not white white but not grey either as some have suggested. Don't leave it in the bath as yes it will get a build up of ******* whatever you leave in the bath, just rinse and hang. Very good for the price.
What to Look Out for
