How to Use Shelf Liner


You know that stuff you can buy by the roll, in the shelf liner dept., that is rubbery and you can line your shelves with it or put it on the bottom of your sink, well, here are a few more applications for it: Put it on the bottom of existing rugs to keep them from sliding on slippery floors, put some on the bottom of your toddler's socks when learning to walk, use under your sewing machine so it doesn't jump while sewing, use under mixing bowl while mixing to keep in place, use in your motor home to keep items from moving in the drawers and shelves, in bathtub to make it non-slip for toddlers or elderly, cut small circles of it and put under chairs you don't want to slide on slippery floors, use it to pack glass items to mail, glue around kitchen utensils, garden tools and household tools to grip better for toddlers, elderly, and those with Arthritis, cut a circle of this material to use to open jars easily, wrap a small piece around a crochet hook to grab easier, and the ideas go on and on and on!

Woah! I only used shelf liner under my chopping board to prevent it from slipping but these other suggestions are amazing too. I think putting it under your rugs is also a great idea. It's the best anti-slip use for your floors and it keeps your little ones from falling as they run around.

That's such a good idea! I know I definitely have a rug in my entryway that keeps sliding all over the place. Time to break out the shelf liner :)

Gave me lots of great ideas. I've used it under fabric when I am painting it. It gives a great texture to the design. You could also use it with paper too!

i use it to help me open jars so i donot have to ask my hubby

use it under the peddle of your sewing machine to keep it from sliding away from you while sewing

This type shelf liner is also the greatest kitty hair remover from furniture I have ever used! Just wrap it around your hand and swipe the furniture. Hair is all gone!

just one more...blouses and camis that slip off of hangers? Cut a strip of liner, make a slit in the middle and slip over the hanger top. Stitch or glue the edges together around the upper slope of the more slip offs

they are great sugestions and i am going to try some now

These are great suggestions!
