Don’t forget the non-skid bathmat.

We don’t want a muddy floor at home. Make sure you place a non-skid bathmat near the shower or bath area so your family can wipe their feet dry before walking around the house. If you don’t have a bathmat on hand, you may use a towel like those found in hotels, just remember to launder and change it daily. (Marina A. Fernandez)
