Pinterest Fail: No slip kitchen rug
Somewhere on the internet I saw someone put hot glue on the back of a rug to keep it from slipping. So when I bought a new rug for my kitchen and almost lost a limb after slipping on it, I figured I should try it out.
I got out my glue gun and a giant bag of glue sticks. After about 45 minutes I was only about a quarter to a third of the way around the rug and my hand was killing me. Like get me some ice and a bottle of wine kind of killing me.
This is my glue gun. I have a small one. I should have known better.
This is a little peak at what I got done with a glue gun.
So I searched high and low on Pinterest and found this. So I got out the caulk gun and some silicone caulk and went to work.
I made a few thick lines all around the edge and in the middle on the back of the rug.
A little close up. It's kind of hard to see because the caulk is clear.
Then I put the rug in front of the fridge, stepped on it, and slipped again. I guess I have to go buy a dang no slip rug mat to put under it.
