Why don't motels and hotels put slip proof showers in the rooms, are they wanting lawsuits? When I stay in a hotel, or motel I don't get cheap dives, and I check out the rooms before I pay, and I check online reviews if possible. I have never stayed at a place that had slip proof showers, I fell in a shower when I was much younger and any time I get into a shower I see how slick the bottom is, and I have never stayed in a place that had slip resistance tubs or showers. The last place I stayed at was Courtyard by Marriott, 110 bucks a night even they didn't have slip resistance tubs. Are they wanting law suits:headscratch::alex:

I've never had a problem with falling in the shower? But I don't dance around either.

And the problem with the slip resistant tubs is they are a BITE to keep clean.

Hey Okie,

My thinking is that its that the porous materials are harder to clean. With the slick bottom you can just bleach the hell outta it.

But I always, ALWAYS will wear flipflops if i can't avoid taking a shower there lol.

I hear what you're sayin' Okie!!!!!!!

This old, gray-haired fat man slips and slides, in those slippery showers!!!!

Let's just say that the 'mats' or 'stickies' that they put in the bottom of a shower will hold dirt/bacteria easier than a clean, slick tub.

Grab a CHEAP pair of flip-flops for use in the showers.
I/we stay at the Courtyard Marriott a lot, and cheap flip-flops are in my travelbag.
(I really don't care to see those folks trying to get my 275 lb _ _ _ up!!!!!:supergrin:

Bleach won't sanitize a slip-proof shower? This puzzles me.

Should just avoid hotel showers all together lol.
Probably as bad as the showers at the gym.

That's a good idea my friend, but you gotta take a shower sometime when you're on the road:supergrin:

While I agree I have never seen shower mats... I have seen the abrasive strips. I do agree with sandels.

BTW clean the remote, door knobs, turn down bed.
I heard some hotels is looking at UV lights to help clean... I would rather soap/water/elbow grease..

Probably because people who take Baths don't like sitting on a rough surface.

There's no need for non-skid in the hotel showers. There's a nice thick layer of athletes foot fungus in the bottom.

My shower is a slip resistant one - at a quality inn staying in virginia right now.

Wish it wasn't, the grit is not comfortable.

Okie,what exactly are you doing in the hotel shower to warrant a non-slip surface?

Lots of moving and shakin' going on with perhaps a lady friend? :whistling:

Something to do with an anteater, maybe?

Mr. Mayor, I can honestly say I've never worried about slipping in a hotel shower. It's simple, I keep a small pair of pliers, some Teflon tape, and an nice, old timey shower head in my shave kit. The adequate water flow keeps the soap suds flowing towards the drain and they don't get a chance to make the floor slippery at my feet. Those water saver, mist shower heads can barely rinse a person off much less get the soap to the drain. Put you a decent shower head in your shave kit and you'll stop having to move around on a floor full of slippery soap.

Oh yeah, turn off the radio while you take a shower. If your busting a move to some rock and roll in the shower, well, yous more likely to slip.

Hard to one-up okie unless there's an anteater in a cheap motel involved.

If they advertized slip proof tubs, people would slip and sue them.

If they have normal tubs, normal people would be careful and not slip.

You can't clean a room 100% by hand in the amount of time they need to turn it over, the UV light gets to places that human hands have a harder time getting to. Some hospitals are using this technology to kill bugs like listeria that have a habit of sticking around. Bacteria viruses and mold are affected by UV light quite badly, in addition the UV light they use is a LOT harsher then the suns rays which you are supposed to wear UV protection to protect against. There is a timer on the machine, you press the timer then close the door so no one can enter and it will sanitize the room.

Here in the south we use butter, salt and pepper on our grits. Try a little cheese and shrimp.

You gotta wonder how okie's anteater takes its grits.
That is, when it's not dancing with the Mayor is cheap motel showers.
