New safety tip: showers

Sat Jul 01, 2006 6:06 am

It's a bit ingenious, actually....

I've always been unsteady on my feet in the shower, The slick tile combined with slippery soap slime on the floor is always an accident waiting to happen. Also, there's always the chance of getting tired from having to stand still for so long and falling that way. I can't count how many times that I've come close to slipping and putting my skull through the tile or through the shower door. I've often lamented that it's not possible to sit down in most showers, b/c that would make it easier. Some people are lucky-- they have an oversized shower complete with a seat built into it.

I then decided to do the next best thing: get one of those plastic one-piece lawn chairs and put it in the shower, and it worked great. Try it!

I use a non- slip mat for the shower and so far haven't fallen over.
Hmm.. It seems a good idea maybe I will try it - :D

Fab idea, just make sure all the seat is open fully or it can be dangerous.
