Non-skid shelf liner is the latest and greatest way to line cupboards, drawers and shelves, but it is great for much more. Since it is made of a rubber-like material, it can be used in a number of creative and practical ways in and around the home. Try these resourceful ways to use non-skid shelf liner, and repurpose sections no longer used to line cabinets and drawers. It is far too expensive to toss into the trash.
Stop Clothes from Slipping Off Hangers
Shirts and blouses with large neck openings can easily slip off hangers, but non-skid shelf liner can stop this common problem. Use narrow satin ribbon to affix strips of rubberized material around the tops of plastic and wire hangers. Clothes will never slip off again.
Create Non-Abrasive Surfaces beneath Flowerpots and More
Some items are particularly rough underneath, and they can easily scratch sensitive surfaces such as wood or even glass. Use non-skid shelf liner to create a soft non-abrasive surface. It is perfect for the bottom of clay flowerpots used indoors, abrasive ceramics and more.
Vibrations can be very annoying, especially under microwave ovens and other operational items. This problem can be stopped with non-skid shelf liner. Do not use it under items that become hot underneath or items that have very little space in which to vent.
Hold Items in Place on a Dash
When looking for ways to use non-skid shelf liner, use it to hold items on a vehicle dash. Rubberized pads are sold to keep cell phones from slipping, but they are not exactly cheap. Use non-skid shelf liner instead. It can also be used to keep pens and other items from rolling from one side to the next. Begin with a clean dash to keep it firmly in place.
Stop a Computer Keyboard from Moving on a Desk
Computer keyboards can slip and slide on slick desktops, especially if they are not completely level. Stop the problem with a sheet of non-skid shelf liner. The keyboard will never slip and slide again.
Make Handy Jar Openers
Certain jars can be very difficult to open, especially for those with muscle and joint problems. Rubber jar openers or handled devices are available, but they are unnecessary. Keep a five-inch by five-inch sheet of non-skid shelf liner on hand. It will provide the traction necessary to get a grip on particularly difficult jar lids. The uses for this affordable rubberized product are virtually endless.
