Figured it out from the start: you are one smart lady

Do not understand all this dirt there is to clean up under the dri dek , for some . There is very little . It just takes a swipe for us once in awhile . If you use your shower no fun in the middle of the night getting your feet or socks wet not matter how well you dry your shower . We must have leather feet also because don't find it a problem standing on the tiles . No way do we want another piece of laundry to deal with using a towel . To be fair we have carpet in our trailer , maybe why not much dirt being brought into shower . Hate getting out of bed stepping on cold or maybe some dirt on floor . Pat

I also copied an idea that Tammy had: I took a piece of an interlocking play mat (originally 24"x 24" and cut it to fit. I place that on top of the DuraGrid; It keeps dirt off the shower floor. But I also put a rug on top of that and then lift the mat and rug out and place it outside the bath door (with a towel or bath mat on top of that) when showering. With the rug on top of the fitted play mat, the rug is easily removed to shake out any dirt, or stuff tracked in (by kids. ), and stuff does not reach the shower floor.

I have always had a wooden bath floor in my Escapes, easy to keep clean and nice on the feet.

Some of us are more talented than others.

I'm in the "others".

The IKEA site says:
Wood contains tannic acid which, after a time, can leak out and discolor the sub-floor. Never lay wooden decking on a surface where it would matter if this happened.
Only recommended for outdoor use.
Has anyone had a problem with discoloring of showers floor when using this product?

Eek!, thanks for the heads up Ralph. I had no idea they were not safe for indoor use. Guess it's back to bamboo or teak. Scott
