One wouldn't think that in today's complicated world 'the bathroom mat' would be a high priority... that is, until the one you have slips and sends your loved one flying and rupturing her back. When this recently hapened, I started the search for a high-quality, non-slipping rug that was both durable and classy-looking. I tried one high-end online company; their rug sheds fibers that make the human body look like a camel. Then I tried another; it fell apart in the wash. Finally I came across THIS rug on Overstock.com. It is classy, non-slipping, and has held up well through the washer and dryer. I am online right now ordering three more. If you are looking for a great, non-slipping, wash-and-dry-able classy bathroom mat, this is it.
I always dread buying new bath rugs. Apparently, the sizes and non-skid, all cotton, plush combo that I like are scarce and pricey. These rugs met all my requirements, are reasonably priced, and feel great underfoot! They have the type of non-skid back that is sort of integrated into the bottom of the rug, rather than a solid layer of rubbery stuff. I really like this design, it seems to stand up to washing and drying without flaking off much better than the solid layer. The rugs are very absorbant and cushy and never budge from where I place them. I have washed and dried them at least a dozen times and they still look brand new with the non-skid backing totally intact. Great rugs, I really recommend them!
I really like the egyptian cotton non-slip rug I purchased. I bought it for the large size and good reviews. It initially felt a little thin when I opened it up but once on the floor, it felt good. There isn't any fiber residue that you find with many rugs and it has held up after a couple washings so far.
This was a great find. I have been searching long and hard for a large size cotton bath rug. I have had both synthetics and cotton over the years and the cotton ones are much better. Last longer, look new longer and are much preferred by the picky pussycats in our household. I also appreciate the fact that the cats can't hook out the yarn on this one which they took great joy in doing for all the synthetic ones I had recently. The rubber backing is just enough to keep the rug firmly in place on the tile floor, but not so heavy it will flake and wear during washing and drying.

I bought this item based on a review which I read about it. Very pleased! I have yet to launder it, but I think it's going to wash well. Obviously you will want to wash this alone, especially the first time. I would suggest a gentle cycle and a limited amount of agitation, (common sense really) and I would prefer to dry it at medium heat because of the rubberized backing. As always, Overstock has never let me down. Products are as advertised and I continue to be impressed with everything I purchase.
I purchased two of these non-slip rugs for my new bathroom, and they are exactly what I had hoped. Since they are not latex backed, I was concerned whether they would actually be non-slip, but they perform perfectly, and I can be assured that my guests will not slip. The feel is very luxurious, and the color is true to the photos.
very happy with the quality of product and have ordered another smaller version. We will continue to shop on this website.

This is a cotton rug of the size I wanted, and serves ok for what I wanted. The color described as outmeal should be relabeled 'military gold'. It's ugly but not enough so to make me return it. All I cared was that it's cotton. If you care about the color, can't recommend at all.
The only reason that I'm not giving this an excellent is because I've only had it for a week and I haven't washed it yet. That's the true test. Out of the box it is very fluffy and luxurious. I bought this with the intention of cutting the toilet hole so there is the expected shedding, but only because of that. I am very happy with quality so far, for the price, and I would purchase again.
I read all other reviews before purchase. I love these rugs! I ordered two of them in Ivory. Beautiful and good quality. You need to vacuum them after opening to get the shipping/handling and top fuzz off. Then enjoy! The "matting" mentioned in one review is not a flaw but part of the way the rug itself is made. Reminds me of rugs from the previous era made so well they seemed to last forever. I use mine in the bedroom and love the way they look and feel on my feet - non skid for safety. They are much nicer than just "bathroom rugs" Had them for almost a month now- not washed them yet so I can't comment about the " heavy when wet" review but am sure that is true. I am very happy with my new rugs!
My hubby and I are picky.... we have been searching for large bathroom rugs for 6 months now. I ordered 2 of these 30 x 50" great rugs in rich paprika color, quality material, and true non-slip as said. How do they wash? I don't know yet as I just got them and will let you know... so far so great!
washes very well...it does take a while to dry, but, that is because it is so thick... and nice and soft underfoot. It is a large size..hard to find for a good price. I bought the white...and it is still nice and white. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase again...IF it ever wears out.
