SAFETY FIRST

IN THE BATHROOM

If you are a regular visitor to Hints and Things you will know I have tried to keep away from advertising banners and product promotions even though these may generate some funds to cover the costs of maintaining the site.  When, however, I receive recommendations from visitors which I feel would benefit others I have no hesitation in passing the information on - the following story I received from Al Tosci is just such a case.


Two months ago my four year old granddaughter slipped in the bathtub and hit her head even though my daughter-in-law had her standing on a mat at the time.   Since I live 3000 miles away I decided I would source the internet to see if there was anything that might do better. I went from website to website but found only mats and rails.  My wife and I took a vacation to a hotel in Rehoboth, DE and I went to take a shower and I noticed there was nothing in the tub.  I called the front desk to ask where a mat was and they said it wasn't necessary as they had installed a "treatment" to stop slipping.  I proceeded to shower and I didn't budge.

I went to the front desk and they had me speak to the hotel engineer.  He told me that he has been using this treatment for years in their property.  I asked him the name of the product but it was only available to commercial users.  He called the company right then and discovered that they had just set up a home user site on the internet.

When I got home, I went to the site and ordered the product for my daughter-in-law.  It arrived safely and once installed appeared to work well, so I ordered two for my home.  This product can be found at www.stopslipping.com

1st May, 2004 - Mr. Tosci has just contacted me again to say this product is still working well.
