A splash mat that works and lasts?

Has anyone found an under high chair splash mat that is thick enough to wipe clean and actually works? I bought the Annabel Karmel one which is huge but tears very easily if you move your high chair on it and is so thin it's hard to wipe clean - it just slips around. I want something thicker like lino. I'm even thinking of asking a local shop that sells lino to cut me a square because I just can't find a mat thick enough. They're all so thin like messy mats. Anyway before I get some lino has anyone got a good one they can recommend?

Dunelm mill sell patterned vinyl that you buy off a roll in all different colours and designs, I use a bit as a table cloth would work well as a splash mat!!

I got a piece of pvc coated fabric from John Lewis, it was £10 a metre, I got 2m to keep in the living room/dining room for eating on and 1m to keep upstairs for colouring at her table in her bedroom. Its nice and thick and should last for years.

I did the same as Lulu. Have a massive plastic tablecloth underneath the highchairs. It hasn't torn yet and I have the bulky chicco poly chairs.

Great suggestions everyone many thanks. I have got an oil cloth tablecloth I rarely use so maybe that would work. I just wanted something really thick so it doesn't sort of ride off the floor or crease. Anyway I'll try it out and if not its the lino shop for me!
