Non skid/Non Slip Shower mods

We have a somewhat slippery shower/tub. Bought
some stick on shapes to improve safety, however
the existing surface is so slick the shapes
don't stick.

Suggestions appreciated.
(Sand roughen, chemical etch ???)

thanks

There are clear, paint on coating which increase the slip resistance. Normally these products are used around swimming pools. Check with a good tile supply house.

Thanks for the tip on 'paint on' solutions.

To clarify my misstatement:
The 'bottom' of the shower has 'pebbled'
surface, sand grain in size, presumably
intended as no slip. Its slippery.
And 'shapes' don't stick.

'Sides' are smooth: 'shapes' stick there.

The 'paint on' sounds hopeful...

Non slip coatings can adhere to all kinds of finishes and tile. I would do as prior suggested and try a non skid coating or see your local home improvement shop. There may be a product they can recommend.

The stick on strips have to be applied to a clean and dry bathtub surface.
