What experts liked
These do scoot on the floor easier since there is no rubberized padding. But we like them and they are easy to clean.
- Review Meta
This is a high-quality mat with an attractive appearance and nice size. Users feel it is safe and doesn't slip even without rubber backing. Many appreciated the lack of rubber, which makes it easier to wash.
- BestReviews
comes with two 21" x 34" bath rugs so you can use them in separate bathrooms or always have one in the laundry.
- The Spruce
Made from 100% Ring spun cotton
- Heavy
Environmentally-friendly ring spun cotton is soft, easy to clean, and totally natural
- Business Insider
What experts didn't like
On a side note, they slide around VERY easily on my tile floor, which I probably should have expected since they really are more thick towels than floor mats.
- Review Meta
Occasional quality-control issues. A few customers received mats with an uneven weave. A few said it doesn't stay in place as well as rubber-backed versions.
- BestReviews
Unlike typical bath mats, these are not non-stick so if you have a slippery marble or tile bathroom these might not be the right choice for you.
- The Spruce
WIll slip around
- Heavy
Without fancy quick-dry textile technology, cotton bath mats will take longer to dry out and probably won't last as long under heavy use

An Overview On Bath Mats

Bath mats have come a long way over the years. While you can buy inexpensive basic versions at a bargain price, those mats have issues that new mats resolve. One of those issues is that pesky rubber backing that comes on traditional bath mats. Sure, that backing keeps the mat from slipping, but the first time you toss it in the washer the backing starts to erode.

Another problem with traditional bath mats is that they lack absorbency. That rug piling is designed to provide a soft surface as you step onto it, but when you’re getting out of the shower, that lack of absorbency means the mat will stay wet long after you’re out. If someone takes a shower after you, a wet bath mat will be an unpleasant surprise.

Whatever type of mat you choose, though, it’s important to avoid placing it on a wet surface. With a non-slip backing, a mat will slide around when the ground is wet, making it more dangerous than just tossing a towel down. Absorb any water or wait for it to dry before placing your bath mat.

The tub isn’t the only place for setting bath mats, though. They’re popular in front of vanities, sinks and even kitchen sinks. If you choose one with ergonomic features like memory foam, your mat can provide protection any time you’re standing on your feet for a while. If you’re picking a rug for an area outside the shower, comfort will be more of a factor than absorbency or how slippery it is.

But comfort goes beyond ergonomics. The surface of the mat itself can provide a level of comfort, especially if you’ll be standing on it barefoot. If the surface of the mat is important to you, look for one made from soft material like chenille. You’ll find you’re looking forward to stepping out of the shower when your foot is surrounded by soft fibers.

DWYM Fun Fact

If you’re jumping out of the shower and going straight to the blow-dryer, you may be missing some valuable self-care steps. In fact, you should be letting your hair dry naturally at least a little before applying heat products to it. A microfiber towel absorbs moisture from your hair to shorten the amount of time you spend under a dryer. You should also take a few minutes to apply body oil to your skin to lock in moisture. Instead of washing your face in the shower, consider splashing cold water on it and using your favorite cleanser. The hot water can deplete your face’s natural oils, while the cooler water is far better for your skin.

The Bath Mat Buying Guide

  • Bathroom floors can be dangerous due to slick surfaces. Older bath mats used a rubberized underside to keep rugs in place, but they still could slip if the ground was wet. Many of today’s mats use weight and absorbency to hold rugs in place. But some rugs use innovative designs like PVC to reduce the risk of slippage while also making the mat able to endure multiple rounds in the washer and dryer.
  • Tile and marble floors can be especially slippery, so it’s important to use caution when stepping from the shower or bath, whether you have a bath mat or not.
  • Many of today’s bath mats are machine-washable, making them easy to clean. For best results, use gentle detergent, avoid bleach and wash on the gentle cycle. You can dry some mats in the dryer, but it’s best to set them out to air dry. Some mats dry faster than others, but it may be best to wash your mats when it will be 12 hours or so before someone showers or bathes again.
  • Some mats hold up better than others. Look for a mat that will remain intact even after multiple washes and years of use. You may save a little money on the front end by going with a cheaper option, but you’ll regret it later when it degrades and is no longer usable.
  • Your bathroom already likely has a color scheme, whether it’s driven by the paint on the walls, the shower curtain you’ve chosen, the type of light fixtures or a combination of all of the above. This may narrow your options, as even mats with a wide range of colors might not have the color to match your design scheme.
  • Many bath mats come in sets, but for those that don’t, make sure there are matching mats if you plan to add on a toilet rug or a second mat near your vanity. Measure the area so you’ll buy the right size for your bathroom.
