Great bath mat, needs a rug stopper
August 23, 2016
This bath mat is very soft, and it is snowy white with green trim and lovely embroidery. The product packaging says the entire mat is made of cotton (except the embroidery). This mat does not have a rubber backing, and it will definitely slide around on tile floor. I purchased a rug stopper to go underneath it, and it works very well to keep the rug firmly in place. I got the 18"x30" Mohawk brand rug stopper from Target for only 3 bucks per mat. I didn't even have to cut it. Works great.
The great part about have a separate rubber backing is that you can wash the mat and use it for years, and it's still just cotton. You won't have any hardened crusty yucky deteriorated rubber after a while. When the rug stopper gets old and hard, you can replace it without having to replace the entire mat.
In regard to the thickness of the mat, this one is somewhat on the thinner side, but I wouldn't say it's too thin. If you like to use thick plush mats, this one will probably feel thinner than those. I think this mat adds a nice touch to my bathroom, and it's simple, effective, and lovely.
