A sticky floorpiece whose purpose it is to keep a clean room free of the dirt and other gunk that's on the bottom of your shoes. There are two types. Permanent tacky mats are somewhat thick pieces of plastic, usually blue, and have to be steam cleaned at least weekly. The disposable variety come in stacks of thin sheets with about 20-60 per stack, are usually white or gray, and the only maintenance involved is removing the top sheet when it turns too brown.

Liberty Industries (http://www.liberty-ind.com/)claims to have come up with the concept behind the tacky mat.
