Default Artificial stance enhancements?

What is allowed to be used to get better grip, stability during a throw? I'm talking about putting something either on the tee or the ground to enhance stability when you throw. Thx.

801.03 Artificial Devices
A. During a round, a player shall not use any artificial device that may directly assist in making a throw, except those devices that reduce or control abrasion to the skin (such as gloves, tape, bandages, or gauze) and medical items (such as knee or ankle braces). Placing an object as a directional aid is not allowed. An item such as a towel or a pad may be placed on the lie as long as it is not greater than one centimeter in thickness when compressed.

If it's raining, muddy, or generally slippery I'll make sure to bring an extra large towel or too to put down on the tee. It makes a world of difference in keeping my plant foot from slipping. If it's particularly nasty conditions I'll use a large beach blanket on the tepid so my whole stance is on the towel.

The thought of carrying around a wet beach blanket is far worse to me than a little slippage on the teepad
