No More Rubber-Backed Bath Rugs
Thanks to help from The Kitchen Table forum on GardenWeb, I hope I've thrown away my last bath rug with a ruined rubber backing. I can't count how many have been discarded over the years after the backing dries out and leaves a crumbly mess in the washer.
I've found a spray by Performix that's called "SuperGrip". You spray it on the bottom of non-rubber-backed rugs and they stay put. I just bought three nice cotton rugs. They come with the spray applied to the bottom, but it wears away in the wash. Now I can keep my rugs longer, wash as needed, and keep them from slipping.
The spray is about $9 at Ace Hardware. I couldn't find it anywhere else.
