Showering

Showering

I use a hand held shower spray to assist my husband with his shower. The shower is small so there is always some water splash back on the floor. I have a towel rolled up outside the shower and a rug in front of that. Any suggestions on how to better prevent water damage and protect the flooring?

I think I might be having more fun with a shower curtain than those of you with a door. I keep the curtain mostly closed and just my arm has to go in and I can move the shower curtain in front of me when I move in a little closer. Maybe hanging a shower curtain inside the door if you don't want to take it off all together would help.

Thank you both for the input. I had a suggestion from a friend to get the rubber mat that boots are put on. I haven't seen it yet but thought I would look into that as well. Will let you know if it looks like it might work.

Rugs are not so absorbent as towels. I would just use more towels on the outside I also use a small shower like that and there is no way to keep the door open without getting you and the floor soaked. 4-5 towels.

Kathy, I have been helping hubby with his showers at times and I did lay down rugs but I have been thinking of getting one of our old winter blankets down from the closet and laying that down. It is old, soft and absorbent and large enough to go all around half of the bathroom floor -- specially all the area in front of the shower.

I had to put away the hand held shower and put on the regular shower head because Johnny kept spraying the ceiling and everywhere with it.

I can see how that would work. Thanks for the suggestion.
