After our traditional bath-mat by a famous rubber product company let us down–or, rather, practically threw us against the shower wall in two near-fatal falls, we’ve thrown it away and done some shopping. We found a reliable, technologically advanced bath-mat at Wal-Mart. It is a thing of beauty, and holds fast to the bottom of the bath-tub. A weak bath-mat can send you flying to an early fate. I know a rubber product company whose reputation ought to be slipping! This was a shocking revelation, and we consider ourselves lucky to be alive, having dodged a couple of dangerous accidents.
