You know those mats you put on the floor of the bath tub so you don't slip? Bought one and it's slipped once or twice. So is there a particular brand of these mats that you've bought and it has never, ever once slipped, say for years? The wife needs one that we can pretty much guarantee will never, ever slip.
I'm not looking for "Oh just go buy one," but "We bought this specific mat x years ago and it's worked like a champ, through all sorts of soapy water, buy this one." Alternative suggestions for preventing slippage in the bathtub while showering are fine.

I'd like to start biking to my yoga studio. I need to bring my own mat. Talk to me about what works. Difficulty: trail-a-bike hitch precludes a cargo rack. Is there another way to carry it on my bike? I'm also open to mat bags that play nicely with riding a bike. [more inside]

I am looking for something like these
for our backyard. They need to be designed for outdoor use and rain. You can find similar ones online, but since these are really heavy, the shipping costs are as much as the mats. Are there any local retailers in the bay area that will sell small quantities to an individual? I have Amazon Prime but have not found anything Prime-eligible that looks decent.

I'm cheerfully ensconced in a dorm room with its own bath. Yay! But it's one of those showers that just sits off in the corner of a tiny stall, with no real separation from the rest of the wash area. Ergo, water everywhere! So where on earth
(OK, in London) can a traveling American get a cheap bath rug? If it helps, I'm right next to Victoria Station. Assume that I can navigate the Tube just fine (but would really prefer not to wander all of London looking for a cheap bath rug).

I need a bath mat that can withstand the high traffic in our bathroom. I currently share a bathroom with approximately ten people, and we have been unable to find a mat that can stand up to that much use. [more inside]

Last weekend, my parents gave my wife and I their old 10'x12' rug and the rubber pad that goes beneath it. It really ties the room together. But there is a problem: the rubber pad is emitting a horrible, disgusting, rubbery smell. [more inside]

are there any roll-up/fold-up mats i could be comfy sleeping on every single night for, let's say, a year? i'm about to move to a teeny tiny room (about 11'x5'4"). i have plenty of common space available to me in the larger apartment but would love for my room to contain more than just a bed.

How do I mount somewhat wrinkled prints for framing? Or alternately, how can I smooth out a wrinkled screenprint before framing – would a water bath be a horrible idea? [more inside]

Is there such a thing as a dark-colored (black or brown) chair mat? Possibly woodgrain? If so, where can I get one?

How do I straighten a warped self-healing cutting mat? Yes, I left it in the back seat of my car and with the combo of the sun and the way it was leaning it no longer lays flat. It's rather large, around 23x35 so pressing it under a book isn't an option. Anyone have some ideas / go through this before?

Where can I find a comprehensive list of US schools offering an M.A.T. in visual arts? Also, will it make things difficult if I receive my M.A.T. in a state I do not intend to teach in?
