To think that bath rugs that fit around the toilet are completely naff

I found a beautiful bath rug but husband has vetoed it because it doesn’t come in a set with the U-shaped mat that goes around the toilet pedestal. I thought the only reason we had one to begin with was that it came as part of a cheap set he bought to hold us over until we found the rug of our dreams for the new bath but he’s decided he can’t live without one now. I should LTB right?

Eugh, piss receptacle

Yeah I thought they weren’t fashionable since the 80s...

Ugh rancid, no need, if he can't pee in the toilet he should sit down not have a piss rug to mop up the splashes

I've never been entirely sure whether they go round the toilet or the sink. Growing up there seemed to be a 50/50 split in the houses we visited confused

If it’s coral colour you should definitely leave.

I like them. I also change them regularly and don't let them get skanky!

We have solo bathmats

Sorry. Can't stand them! Only woman in a houseful of men, including one who can't aim yet 🤮

They are known as “pisscatchers” for a reason.

Truly disgusting and a bit seaside town B and B.

Yuck, Germ galore!

He's being unreasonable. You need the fluffy toilet seat cover, too.

I like them, but then I'm almost always barefoot so its nicer underfoot - especially in winter when the floor gets cold.

Turtle Mats are the only possible bath mats ( and door mats). Expensive but effective and I have had mine for 12 years.

We put ours round the sink pedestal, i like not standing on the bare floor brushing my teeth.

They are grim. However I've recently moved into a house with wooden floors in the bathroom and I can now see the appeal. I'd rather my 5yos pee soaked into a washable mat than the wood.

They should be banned. Revolting, unhygienic and not seen in houses post 1970s

Bloody hell, he will be putting a matching hat on the toilet lid next.
It's a slippery slope I tell you.

HarlinRay Mon 29-Jun-20 23:26:58

Ive relayed ‘pisscatcher’ and ‘1980s BnB’ and he seems to be reconsidering. Let’s hope so. My fault for allowing one into the house in the first place.

I thought they were to keep your feet warm.

I have one, but I also have a toilet brush too.

Mumsnetters are so squeamish.

indemMUND Mon 29-Jun-20 23:27:12

If you find one that does, then is he up for being responsible for cleaning it? It's his piss it'll soak up 🤷🏻‍♀️

Isthisfinallyit Mon 29-Jun-20 23:28:52

I always found the whole idea disgusting.

ImFree2doasiwant Mon 29-Jun-20 23:28:59

I have 3 and 4 yr old sons. Piss catchers are required!

Love mine, keeps my feet warm. You can wash them you know, have a few, change them regularly. I too have a toilet brush..
