A sorbent article comprises a sorbent layer having first and second major surfaces and a texturized polymeric skin layer secured to the first major surface of the sorbent layer. The article has a stiffness of about 200 N/g.cm.sup.-2 or less. An article of this construction has excellent sorptive and non-slip properties, making it well suited for use on floors and other work surfaces. Wet kinetic coefficients of friction of 0.4 and greater can be demonstrated by the inventive articles. The article improves the safety of persons who need to stand, walk, or otherwise safely function on floors or other surfaces that are susceptible to wet conditions.
