Something for both adults and kids alike.
You usually either get adult bath mats or toddler and children bath mats. You don’t get a mixed one. Then there is the Natural Rubber Bath Mat and you can see how things are changing. This piece is made for both children and adults, meaning that you will be saving both money and the space needed to deposit two pieces, instead of the more effective one.
Now, what would be the difference between an adult bath mat and one reserved for children? Are there any differences in quality or the material used? Should you choose for one like this here, rather than a regular one-sided one?

I have to say, I was initially intrigued regarding this aspect. I wanted to find out what are the differences between your everyday bath mat and this one.
So I went ahead and looked into the matter. Here is what I found.
An obvious upgrade compared to previous versions
And the upgrades are clearly visible in several aspects. Here is what I mean by that:
The size has been boosted considerably
To be honest with you, the largest bath mat I have seen so far was 39” long by 16” wide. That would be one of the absolute largest. Although this one doesn’t quite reach those values, we still have 38” in length and 14” in width, making it the second best bath mat by means of size.
In some cases, however, this piece can actually prove to be even better than a larger one. Because, once you have one that is simply too long, you will have to fold its extremities to fit the tub. The Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat, on the other hand, is more likely to perform better in most cases.
The material is now natural
Here is the problem with non-natural material. There are primarily 3 distinct issues:
- Non-natural material usually smells bad because of various chemicals added into its composition.
- The overall feel to it is not great and seems uncomfortable and cheesy.
- It is overall less durable
Which brings us to the natural type and all the above problems will immediately vanish.
Most bath mats I have reviewed have around 150-190 suction cups, spread all over its surface. The Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat has over 200. This means that it will deliver a better grip, improving safety and allowing you to bathe freely, without concerning about slipping or having the mat sliding under your feet.
The elevated comfort
Not all people realize the importance of having a comfortable mat in their tub. It actually makes you feel like lying on your back in your bed and bathing at the same time. And you can only get this feel by resorting to a natural fabric, like that used in manufacturing the Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat.
Only wash it by machine if you want to
There is really no reason to wash this mat by machine if you don’t really have the time or simply don’t want to. It can be extremely easy to clean by hand in a matter of minutes. You can just place it under the stream of warm water and that should be it.
For a more thorough cleaning, though, you can use the washing machine instead, once a week.
Prevents water accumulation
I know, this does not sound like something new. A lot of bath mats have that water draining system, represented by the several dozen drainage holes. But it is rare that you get to see that in mats made out of natural material. This one has precisely 68 drainage holes available to clear all the residual water.
Why should we love it?
Mainly because it can be used by everybody, regardless of age, body size or physical condition. Due to the natural toxins-free high quality rubber, Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat performs great in all cases and it is definitely a good pick for everybody.
Aside from the fact that it is made out of natural rubber, thus greatly increasing the level of comfort and durability, it is also effective in covering the entire surface (almost) of the tub. No more worries about stepping outside the mat and slipping.
How has it been received?
Okay, so here is the deal. The large majority of the users have had few reasons to protest in terms of quality. But some of them had, so we are going to look at what exactly pleased them and what bothered them in relation to Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat.
The good side
- Natural, strong material
- No strong smells of any kind, except that of fresh rubber for a couple of days
- Large enough to cover the entire bathtub
- Steady and secure
- Easy to clean
- Prevents water accumulation
- Durable in the long run
- Mold resistant
The bad side
- Too thin, could’ve been thicker
- The initial smell that will linger for several days or several uses
Not much to complain about, as you can see. Regarding the fact that Non-Slip Natural Rubber Bath Mat may be too thin, that is not a problem in and of itself. I believe people usually get scared at that, since they live under the impression that it will affect its quality in the long run.
No idea if that is the case, but I haven’t seen any proof related to that so far. As far as I can tell, this piece works great and can be used for a long time without any problems, as long as you keep it clean and treat it with attention.
My 2 cents
I say buy it. I believe it is worth it, given all the information I have about it. If you don’t like it, there are always plenty of choices to go for.
