Among the long list of household underdogs, a tub mat is perhaps the most literal, seeing as you stand on it (and maybe your dog does, too).
It’s not often that we take a moment to think about how important a tub mat is — they keep us from falling on a wet, slippery, hard surface — and appreciate it in all of its glory. Perhaps this lack of recognition stems from because you have yet to find the perfect tub mat for your home.
But according to thousands of Amazon reviewers, the Gorilla Grip mat deserves only glory.
Shoppers say that this mat is everything you could want: It’s durable, machine-washable, and stays in place no matter what. There are over 320 individual suction cups on the mat’s bottom, made specifically to keep it in place under water.
“The suction cups are super powerful,” one 5-star reviewer wrote. “I also like that it has holes in it for water to drain through. I think this keeps the mat cleaner and fresher between cleaning days. But most importantly, this baby can grip!”
The antibacterial mat was designed specifically to combat against tough mildew build-up that so often accompanies other tub mats. The holes allow water to pass through to stop any slippery build up and give greater flexibility to fit any kind of tub, according to the product description.

“The suction cups are so plentiful and secure that it adheres well immediately after laying it down on a wet tub and pressing slightly, and I feel perfectly safe,” wrote another shopper. “Looks like I'm done shopping for bath tub mats!
To cover and protect as much of a tub (or shower) as possible, the mat is a large, 35 by 16-inches. The mat is also latex and BPE free, non-toxic and comes with a 10-year warranty.
“What do you say about a bathtub mat? What I say about this one is that it is perfect!” another reviewer exclaimed. “Long size covers most of the length of a standard tub and it STICKS! I've had it for awhile now and it has yet to budge at all. It's soft and comfortable to stand on and my feet stay secure. Not once have I felt like I slipped on it. Be safe and get one of these!”
