Today I have a quick and easy tip for you! I love having rugs in my home but I hate it when they slip and slide all over the floor, it makes me crazy having to constantly adjust them all the time! So today’s quick tip is how to keep rugs from slipping. It’s actually a really easy solution and you’re going to wish you’d thought of it years ago, or at least I did when I discovered it!
Here’s what you need:
- Command Picture Hanging Strips (Edit – I recently found these, which are even better because they’re made for rugs!)
Take two of the strips and velcro them together. Make sure to keep the paper on the back of both of the strips.
Next remove one of the papers on the back and stick it to the corner of your rug.
Then remove the second paper and press the Command strips and rug down to the floor. Press on it with your fingers, or your feet, to make sure it’s in place.
Repeat with the remaining 3 corners and your rug will be slip-free! If you need to pull the rug up to clean underneath, no problem! (Haha, I know that kind of sounds like a cheesy sales pitch but it’s not, I’m just really excited about how amazing this tip is!) Just peel the corner up and the floor velcro will stay in place on the floor while you pick up the rug and clean.
I have the Command Picture Hanging Strips on the corners of all my rugs, from the indoor/outdoor rugs (above), to the flimsy rug in the kitchen that sees a lot of traffic and even my big fluffy rug in the living room!
Did you know this trick already? (If you did why didn’t you tell me!?) 🙂 It’s silly how excited this makes me but I can’t tell you how much of a patience saver it is not having to fix the rugs all the time!
