One of the most attractive features of a scrubber mat is the fact that you don’t have to bend over to wash your toes and soles. This is a boon for anyone with mobility issues or folks who are recovering from surgery or injuries and need to keep movement to a minimum.

If you plan on keeping your scrubber mat in your shower for daily use, consider buying one that’s quick-drying and mildew-resistant. Like any household item, you should read instructions carefully to determine the best way to clean the item every month or so. Many smaller rubber mats can be washed in the dishwasher, while larger mats will need to be hand washed and air-dried.

One person’s foot massage is another person’s tickle torture, so shop around to find the right foot scrubber mat for you. Textured mats are a great introduction and allow individual users to scrub and massage their feet as hard or soft as they’d life. Other more scrubbing-focused models offer strong bristles and built-in pumice stones to combat calluses and exfoliate rough skin.

Before you buy a foot scrubber mat, you’ll want to make sure that it fits in your shower without blocking your drain. You should also consider if you want to use it standing up, sitting down, or both. Mat styles with non-slip suction cups are great for standing or sitting, while smaller, slipper-style models are safer while sitting.
