Why Keeping a Clean Bathmat is Important
There are several reasons to keep a clean bathmat, which includes drying it between uses. The last thing you want is to see is soap scum build-up or mineral residue from your water. Our vinyl and TPE bathmats inherently are resistant to the growth of mold & bacteria, but following the following tips will ensure that this growth doesn't occur.
How To Keep it Clean
- After each bath or shower peel up the bath mat.
- Thoroughly rinse the bath mat making sure to get all the soap suds and residue off.
- Hang up the mat to dry.
- Once every week or two, feel free to toss it into the washing machine with your normal laundry (yes, all our bathmats are washing machine safe!).
Vinyl Bath Mats - Your First Use
Some customers report a strong vinyl odor after first receiving their new Slip-X Solutions bath mat. This commonly occurring odor fades quickly after a few uses, but if you prefer not to wait, simply wash your new mat in your washing machine's hot cycle prior to using it. This will remove virtually all of the new vinyl smell.
If you want to avoid smelly vinyl all together, consider the 100% recyclable pebble bath mat. It's made of TPE and has a completely neutral smell!
