Simple Trick to Add Traction to Carpets, Mats, Bowls & More
Sometimes the best solutions are truly the simplest.
This great tip comes from Tina Ferrante. She said she got the idea one morning when she stepped on her bath mat and went sliding across the bathroom floor. She solved that problem by dabbing some glue from a hot glue gun on the bottom of the mat.
Since her kitty, Bambi, has a hard time getting into his favorite bed because it slides all over the floor, Tina fixed that problem too by adding some glue to the bottom. And as she said “presto, no more sliding. CH kitty-proof bed.”
The beauty of this is that the hot glue, once cooled, provides the perfect texture for traction. You can also start by adding a few dabs in strategic places and add more if that’s not enough. Also, depending on the material you put the glue on, you may be able to pull it off and put on fresh, in case the old glue ever wears out.
The best aspect about this idea is that it can be applied to several other things throughout your home. Try adding dabs of glue to the bottom of area rugs, food bowls, etc.
And fortunately, a glue gun won’t set you back too much. Most hardware and craft stores sell affordable hot glue guns, so this doesn’t need to be an investment.
What a quick, easy and cheap way to solve a problem many of us face. Thanks, Tina!
