How to Eliminate a Common Frustration with Rugs
If your rug or welcome mat slips and slides every time it’s used, here’s the inexpensive fix I’ve been using for months! No more frustration at the rug moving around.
We have 2 problem rugs in our house and they are both in the kitchen/sunroom where we have tile floors. The runner in the kitchen irks me when it’s not straight. But it’s also a slight slip risk.
The simple entry rug we have inside our back door is very slippery even when you’re being careful. I’ve tried numerous things to keep them from sliding around.
At one point we had Glue Dots* that worked really well but you could not lift up the rug to clean underneath and put it back.
Let’s be honest, I didn’t clean under them that much anyway, but it’d be nice to have the option! So next I tried a regular old, rubbery, open weave rug pad. And that prevented slipping but it always crept out from under the entry rug and runner. We were constantly adjusting it!😳
Enter Never Curl
So I hit up the internet to solve my problem as one tends to do. After a little research and checking out reviews on various products, I found Never Curl*. It’s just 4 double-sided pads that go on the corners of a rug and keep it from sliding around.
And now I’ll never look back!
I originally ordered 1 pack just for the kitchen runner because it was the biggest headache of the two. But then being home all day every day starting at the end of March gave me more opportunities to be irritated by the entry rug.🤪
And when there are situations driving me nuts that I can’t control (hello stay-at-home order!), I look for things I can control. Like a sliding entry rug! There’s some $12 therapy for ya!
Oh! And they are renewable. So if you pull up the rug to sweep or mop, you can wipe any fuzzies off the rug gripper and it will be sticky again and hold everything in place!🙌🏻
Lastly, since our entry rug is a pretty thin, flat woven rug, I was concerned about seeing the outline of the gripper from the top. But, thankfully, that is not the case!
