Farrar Posted July 9, 2012 Share Posted July 9, 2012 My mother and I have the same argument every time I visit. She has an old tub that's really tall and has a slick bottom. She puts a washrag at the bottom of the tub to step in on so she won't slip. But I say that's MORE dangerous! Sure, your foot has plenty of friction with the rag, but underneath between the wet rag and the tub there's just as little friction as with your foot (if not LESS!) and you won't have much warning when you slip - less warning than when your actual foot slips. My mother is young and in good shape, so it's not so much that I'm worried about her safety as I just think she's incorrect. :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
