DH keeps telling me that, but I have a hard time letting go. The one in the bathroom especially. It is so soft and fluffy when I get out of the shower.

Broken bones and concussions are not worth the risk. Only put it down when you are showering.

That's an idea. Maybe I'll try, but no promises.

Back in "the day" the shower rug got draped over the side of the tub when not in use.

Curious why you're resistant to a suggestion that could prevent serious injury.

Yes! I have none in my apartment even though I'd like them to cover up some stains.

I never even thought of leaving my shower rug on the floor. I want it to be kept clean for my clean feet after showering and not stepped on with shoes that I've worn outside. (My toilet is right next to the shower.)

We use a bath mat in front of the tub. It gets hung on the handle of the glass shower door when we finish drying off.

We have little rugs in front of the sinks in the bath but they are rubber backed and lay flat.

The wonders of forum-speak. I was responding to what you said and just validating what you said.
