Reader April wrote us with a question that we've been thinking about lately, too:
I am looking for a non-slip mat to put in our tub which is not made of vinyl, and does not off-gas all the horrible smells that usually accompany them. Any suggestions?
We did some basic Googling, and came up with a few resources for PVC-free non-slip mats.
Further Googling kept pointing us back to the same site for PVC-free natural rubber bathmats. Natural rubber does not off-gas. We also found these non-slip strips, which seem to be healthier for household use than vinyl mats.
Anyone else have a suggestion?
