SlipX Solutions® Vinyl Bath Mats
Vinyl Material Usage
Vinyl, also known as plasticized PVC, is used in many of our popular bathroom products. Our vinyl bathroom products are safe for everyday use and are made with the same material formulations used in hospitals in applications such as blood draw tubing, dialysis, feeding tubes and IV bags. Additionally, vinyl is easy to keep clean and maintain, making it a great value for our customers. Some of our vinyl bath mats and accessories have Microban® antimicrobial protection added to them. Learn more about Microban.
High Quality PVC Foam
In our Comfort Foam Bath and Shower Mats, we use a slightly different type of vinyl material. While the chemical composition isn't different, the PVC foam used in our Comfort Foam Bath Mat and Comfort Foam Shower Mats are lighter than other vinyl bath mats. This lightness creates a fluffy and super comfortable effect underfoot!

How to Remove the Vinyl Smell
Vinyl tends to have a distinct smell when it’s removed from its packaging. The good news is that it’s easy to get rid of the vinyl smell. Simply run your bath mat through a gentle cycle in your washing machine. This is the recommended way to clean your vinyl bath mat, and it's also very effective for removing the less than desirable vinyl smell.
How to Care for Your Vinyl Bathroom Products
Products made from vinyl are easy to clean and care for. We recommend that you remove your bath mat after each use and hang it to air dry. This will help prevent the buildup of soap scum and bacteria growth. Regular cleaning and drying will help increase the life of your bath mat. Learn more about bath mat care.
Are Vinyl Bath Mats Safe?
Yes. In fact, studies have been conducted to determine the health effects of long-term exposure to vinyl products. These studies focused on the slow breakdown of the plastic softening agents overtime, specifically chemicals known as phthalates and BPAs. These studies determined that intermittent exposure to vinyl products will not have long-term negative health effects. Furthermore, none of our products contain BPAs, and we have phased out the use of phthalates in our products. Learn more about phthalates.
