Stepping into a bath or shower can be a risky business if the surface is slippery. If you are elderly or frail in could be fatal.
In the past, people have resorted to using non slip rubber bath mats, but they can often be a tripping hazard in themselves, and they attract grime and mould which is particularly difficult to clean.
There is now an alternative – Anti Slip Bath and Shower Safety Stickers. They are 3.5cm white self-adhesive circles with a lightly textured surface, which are stuck directly onto the bath. They are less obtrusive than a bath mat, and importantly they are always in place, so there is not the need to constantly bend own and adjust a bath mat, which can be particularly tricky for people with mobility issues.
The Anti Slip Stickers can be used on baths, showers or in wet rooms, and can be arranged in a pattern to suit the shape of your bath or shower.
A simple change like this in the bathroom of an elderly friend or relative can give confidence to bathe, and reduce the risk of a trip or fall.
Anti Slip Bath Stickers are easy to keep clean as part of your normal bath or shower cleaning routine – a wipe of a cloth is all it usually takes, and from time to time a gentle scrub with a soft scrubbing brush.
The stickers can be removed should you ever wish to do so, but they are designed to stay in place for several years.
If you know someone that might be at risk, why not point them in the right direction or better yet, buy them a pack…
