A slip and fall in a full tub can hurt nearly anyone – but it can be deadly to children, especially younger and smaller children. This is scary to think about, but the good news is that there are a number of products out there that can keep your kids safe in the tub, prevent falls and make bath time a fun, stress-free ritual for everyone.
Consider Using these Items to Keep Your Kids Safe as They Bathe
1 – Removable handles
The great thing about these handles is that they can be applied exactly where your little ones (or bigger kids) can safely reach them. This allows your kids to hold onto these handles as necessary when bathing or showering. These grips can help kids keep their balance, especially as they close their eyes to rinse their hair/faces.
Another great thing about these handles is that you can remove them after use so they won’t trap water on your tub (and so you can clean beneath them, etc.).
2 – Removable non-slip mats
These mats can be placed in tubs for kids to sit or stand on as they bathe. As with removable grips/handles, these non-slip mats can be taken out of tubs after use, preventing water from getting trapped on the surface of the tub (and starting to damage it).
Here, we want to point out, however, that if these mats will not be taken out of the tub, they should NOT be used. This is because leaving them in tubs day in and day out WILL damage your tub.
3 – Non-slip liners
If you want a more permanent solution to preventing falls in your tub, a good option is to install a nonslip liner over the surface of your tub. Having a professional do this can be key to ensuring that the liner is properly laid down so that it will really protect your tub – and look nice – for years to come.
