Now we're not talking about just any old bath mat here – we were looking for the ever elusive “rubbery” mat with safety grip.  We've come across many different styles of non-rubbery bath mats:  recycled wood, bamboo and teak that would be fine, but our goal was to find one that could be used with our kids to provide a non-slip surface.

  1. We found some at Target. They are very cushiony! I think they are called spa bath mats. Target also has PVC free shower curtains – just think of that nasty smell when you open the package of a regular shower curtain made entirely of PVC.

  2. I've just bought a TPR tub mat – thermoplastic rubber? I think it's okay. I'm in Canada, and I got it at the Bay (big department store).

    I have a bath mat from Vita Futura, and it's been okay except that one year on it is starting to disintegrate. Ick.

  4. Unfortunately, the Kikkerland Whale Bath Mat is not guaranteed to be toxic free. It seems there are some questionable marketing tactics going on. Another Amazon customer left a review saying that it smelled toxic and when he/she followed up with the company, they informed him they couldn’t guarantee what besides rubber was in the material. Please updat your list as this does not seem to be reputable company.
