Default Bathroom Scales

I've recently had some new floor covering put onto my bathroom floor, along with some bracing for a section of floor board that was sagging.

It's really great having this improvement, but one appliance that needs some improvement is my bathrom scales, which have remained very dirty over the years despite my occasional attempts at cleaning them.

The cover, of the part of the scales that one steps on to weigh themselves, is held in place with a self sticking backing, and is not too thick, possibly 1/32 of an inch at the very most.

The scales are still in very good working order, just this unsightly problem, which I would hope could be corrected without having to buy a new set of scales.

I've noticed some repairs to my bathroom wall with self sticking wall paper, and I'd think something like that could be used, only I don't know exactly what to ask for when I go to Lowes, or Home Depot.

Are there any specialty self sticking scale covers made just for bathroom scales, or would just any self sticking wallpaper have to suffice?

What about using skate board tape, it has a rough surface but would be a nonslip surface.
