Ellen emailed us with a good question: Recently, I bought a bamboo bathmat at CB2. I have been really happy with it, but am curious as to how I should clean it. On the website, it says to wipe it clean, but I get worried about the water underneath the mat when me and my roommate get out of the shower, since we don't clean the floor daily. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Ellen, you might like to check out this post from a few months ago. Sarah called this same bathmat a "best product" and says that she has used hers for a year, with just a simple wipe down, as you have been doing. In the post she said, "We thought the open weave might cause the floor underneath to get a little gross, but we've surprisingly never had an issue.", The post also has 20 comments with reader feedback, so take a look.

Readers, please add your feedback and suggestions on this type of bathmat to the comments below - Thanks!
