Bvbath
My wife keeps telling me that our bathtub is too slippery and that I need to figure out a way to fix it so one of us doesn’t eventually hurt ourselves. I’ve gone to a few hardware stores around town but can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. Does anyone know of how I can go about making my bathtub non slip?

A few years ago my husband and I used a product called Johnny Grip for our kitchen floor because it was way too slippery. It worked so well. Since then we have also used it on both bathroom floors and the actual shower floors themselves. I don't think the hardware stores carry such a product, hence why you haven't had any luck, but I know that you can do like we did and purchase it online. There website is http://www.slipperytile.com/make-bathtub-no-slip if you're interested!

Harris99,

What about putting a non-slip bath mat in the bathtub? Here are a few that I found by putting that phrase in my browser, at ebay: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=bathtub+non+slip+mat. Did you want to not use a mat for some reason?

Bath mats are horrible to clean. Also, the one my father in law had in his bathroom slipped right out from under me and I nearly bashed my head on the tub faucet. His tub was much less slippery without it. We have a tub with a corrugated bottom, but with our softened water it is still slippery.
