Aha! Well, go to your flooring retailer and buy some of the product they use for sealing cork floors. Then give your finished mat several coats of it, and reapply in the future every once in a while to keep the water and dirt from being absorbed into the cork. What creative people you two are! :)

I would recommend NOT seal the wine cork mat. Please see this post: http://www.craftynest.com/2010/03/sealing-wine-corks-test/ That should answer your question. As for hair or dirt, use a vacuum attachment to vacuum it off every once in a while.

That tub was in my old apartment, built in 1958. I'm sure it's original, because the owner took great pains to keep everything original.

Hi, This is a DIY project:

Monica Ewing shows how to make a bathmat from shelf liner, hot glue, and 175 old wine corks on her Crafty Nest blog: http://www.craftynest.com/2010/03/wine-cork-bath-mat/

Thanks, Becky. If you make one, don't let anyone try to convince you that you have to seal the corks. http://www.craftynest.com/2010/03/sealing-wine-corks-test/

wine cork matt - How do you make them
   Comment   March 18, 2014

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Put them to work. Get creative! For example, a collection of corks can become a bathmat.
Wine corks hold a wealth of possibilities after the bottle is long gone. Houzz user Monica Ewing repurposed hers into a crafty bath mat, and you can too by following her helpful tutorial.
Becky Harris added this to No Guilt! 7 Deadly Sins in Décor
Redemption: As I said earlier, no redemption for sins around the house is required. However, if you feel like you may need some after a greed/gluttony double whammy (dipping into too much of that wine collection), you can reverse the bad karma by turning the corks into an eco-friendly bath mat. Not that industrious? Drop them off at a ReCORK collection spot so that they can be repurposed as shoe soles. More:Small Ideas for Big ResultsAdding Color to Your Blank CanvasWine Cellars That Shine
Vanessa Brunner added this to Turn Your Corks Into Home Décor
Make a bathmat. Monica from The Crafty Nest put together this chic bathmat using 175 collected wine corks, a hot glue gun, and a non-adhesive shelf liner. Read her post for more details.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 11 Spaces That Aced High School
Art. Everyone loved art class. The art teacher was usually eccentric and wore handmade jewelry. There was a group of kids who excelled at art; the things they made from scratch were just incredible. Notice this shower mat made from wine corks. I think I found one of those kids right here on Houzz.
Cons of cork. Although cork is water resistant, it's not waterproof, so take care to seal your cork properly. It might need to be resealed every few years or so. Without proper protection, cork can stain. Sharp objects can also cause significant damage to cork floors. Approximately 6.6 million acres of Mediterranean cork forest covers Southern Europe and Northern Africa, which is where most of the world's cork supply originates. Some argue that the negative effects of shipping to North America from so far away outweighs the environmental advantages. However, Nora Berrahmouni, Mediterranean forest unit director at the World Wildlife Federation has encouraged consumers to buy cork flooring. Since there's a decline in the global market for cork wine stoppers (many have been replaced with less ecofriendly screw-top and plastic stoppers), other cork products will help support this sustainable form of agroforestry.
