What do you use for a bath mat?

Sorry for such a nit-picky post, but it seems like I have to buy new bath mats more often these days due to mildew buildup. We have used a towel for the kids' bathtubs, but I am wondering what other moms use. TIA.

How do you take care of it? Is there mildew buildup?

I have a textured bottom on the tub.

I also have a Rubbermaid mat that I will clean using a scrub brush and a diluted bleach solution.  It works great.

I don't use one now, but when I did I always pulled it up after every use and let it air dry - I would hang it over the bar that was built into the shower/tub.  My ds was the only one that used that tub so it was easy.

I just got a memory foam for my shower, but otherwise, just your normal shag-style mats for all the others. we wash em every few weeks or whenever they are noticably ready for washing (not soft and pretty).

I use a suction cup one inside the tub and replace it when it gets gross. they are like $10 at walmart. We have a towel-like bathmat we use for getting out of the tub and just wash it.

Thick towel type bathmats. I don't use the rubber backed ones because they eventually fall apart in the wash. Or in a pinch, I towel dry and then throw the towel on the floor to use for a bathmat. I usually do that when the real bathmats are being washed.
