I use a bath mat more as a way to make sure I don’t slip on the tile floor when I get out and to keep my feet warm. I hate the feel of a wet bath mat. I dry off completely before I get out. That includes the bottom of my feet, in-between my toes, and everything, but I’m just weird like that. My wife, on the other hand, is the type that doesn’t touch a towel to her skin until she is out which makes for a very soppy mat. It is like the area surrounding a pool after my kids splash around.
