Rug for Outside of Shower

So... I'm wondering what people recommend with regard to a water absorbing--but not mildew harboring--rug for right outside the shower?

Great question.

I'm curious too so I'll watch for answers but in the meantime . . .

I wonder if those rubbery waffle-quilted shelf liners would be a good idea. I've seen them in auto stores in black for lining tool drawers and such and my wife uses cream colored ones under small rugs to keep the rugs from slipping out from under your feet on hard surfaces.

I wonder if they would be stiff enough and yet let water pass through while one showered outside. Hmm.

I use a towel. Hang to dry and easy to clean. No mildew. After A shower I use the towel to give the shower a good drying and wipe down. My cat box lives in the shower.

I keep a thick, black hand towel on a small towel rod near the floor in the bathroom...works perfect as a bath mat, then is used to wipe up the floor and walls, return to rod to dry.

I use a cotton bath rug from target. It does not have a rubber backing. So it can be washed when we wash the towels (in the same load). Have not had any problems with mildew or it not drying. I will hang up over the top of the shower frame if it happens to get particularly wet. But I usually dry off IN the shower, so very little water is getting on the mat. I like it more so for bare feet when using the bathroom to dress or get ready.

For outside the shower we use a towel. Wipe floor after and hang to dry. Pat

Some towel set also have matching towel fabric rugs. We have a bunch of those, easy to dry and wash when we do the towels.

We use a big thick cotton stick house bath rug. Very absorbent, dries fine. Never had any issue with mold or mildew. We wash it a few times a season.

I use a standard rubberized bath mat crossways, between shower and sink. It is mostly long enough, always dry here in Az. My towel I hang in front of the shower to dry, with no window to vent, it never dried on a towel rack in the lavatory.

We use a standard bathmat, the kind resembling a heavy, terry-cloth towel without any sort of backing.

We use a small microfiber bath mat I got someplace like Marshalls. It dries very quickly and we've never had a mold problem.

How easy is this on the feet?

Most of the suggestions here won't allow for drying in the tropical ocean air of Florida.

It is smooth teak, no problem with the feet. We use the same thing at home. Avoids rugs that don't dry.

We just toss a soft bath towel or bathmat on the floor outside the door, hang it up to dry when done...

If I get a teak mat, it will be inside the wet bath to help keep feet dry after using the shower...

In general, a well-made teak mat is easy on the feet, dries quickly, and looks very nautical. (Not cheap, however)

We use a 'shower tent' sold at Walmart to extend the shower head into for outdoor showers. This is for Boondocking showers for privacy. Often... we use only the rubber mat only and enjoy... the scenery.

We set the shower tent upon a 36" x 36" black rubber mat from Lowes or Home Depot that has openings to drain water, is about 5/16+" thick, sturdy... but weighs four or five pounds. These are intended to be along work benches and others can be connected.

We have had it so long, I do not know what it is called. Used it for 11 years. Still shows no wear, never gets mildewy, durable and can be used in front of your work bench when not on a beach trip to rinse the salt water off of you next to your trailer.

I looked at Home Depot internet selection and it looks the same as ours... 3 ft. x 3ft. Buffalo Tools- Interlocking Rubber Mat Model 801446 (4 pack is $65). We bought only one, so figure under $20. You cannot wear it out. It will hold up to ANYONE's weight.
