Something I've wondered about- bath mats

My husband felt that bath mats are what you put in a bath tub. But when we've stayed at hotels, I couldn't see putting that terry mat in the tub. Finally I decided to find out what is a bath mat for, and it turns out there are two kinds- the plastic kind that goes in the tub and is used to keep a person from slipping in the tub, and the terry cloth kind that goes on the floor outside the tub and is to keep drips off the floor and to aborb water from the body after the bath or shower.

Both kinds are considered needed for safety. Do you have either of these or both?

We have the outside one.   It is cookie monster blue and just as soft and fluffy.  We do not have any for inside and i want to use decals instead in fun designs.

How often do you wash it?  Every time you do the towels?

twice a month and between those times, i shake it out on our porch and spray with lysol.  If the sun gets hot enough,  i hang it over the porch railing for fresh air and sun treatment.  I do towels twice a week and that would tear up the mat really fast.

We have both.  Our tubs are cast iron enameled and do not have a non slip surface.

We have the cloth one that goes on the outside of the tub to catch water so we dont slip and fall.
