If you own an RV or travel a lot, you know it's a constant battle to keep things secure so they don't fall or tip over in the process. If you are not using it yet, try sticky tack (also known as poster putty). It's the best invention. It is pliable putty that usually comes in a package of 2-4 strips. I have seen it in white, blue, and yellow. It is often found in the office or school supply sections in stores and is inexpensive. My favorite brand comes from a dollar store. It is repositionable and restickable. You can use it over and over, so one package lasts a long time.
RVer's can hang things on walls with sticky tack, keep cutting boards and bowls still, put it under a vase of flowers and on and on. Works great under pet bowls also.
I have found so many uses for sticky tack in my home. I use it when doing crafts and in our truck while traveling. Just grab a hunk, place it under the object you want to secure and give it a little "smoosh".
Give it a try, you'll love it and the ideas for using it are endless!

This is a great idea and sounds like the perfect solution to a problem I have! My cat is forever turning over his food dishes, then turning over the dogs' dishes too. I've tried putting velcro under the dishes and it works great, till I go to wash the dishes. Then the velcro comes off in the water.
Hopefully this will work better!
As a perpetual user of poster putty/sticky tack I offer this hint for best adhesion. Knead, pull and pull the putty as you would taffy. It will become stickier and stickier (and warmer!). You only need a very small amount in each glob for posters, a little bit more for chunkier objects. Poster putty sticks to the painted concrete block walls in my classroom. Duct tape comes off after a while!
