I was going to suggest the rubber shelf/drawer liners that Omanana mentioned. I even used a wide one of those cut to fit to keep from slipping in my shower.
All great ideas. I use Duct Tape and make a circle around my four fingers, making sure it adhere's to it'self. Then I put some on all four corners or if it's oval/round, in the center and on four or five other places.
You will have to replace it about every three months, but that's a small price to pay for rungs that won't slip.
Good luck. PBP
Squeeze "Speed Sew" on the back in lines or swirls. Works on the soles of knitted slippers too.
If you have a dollar store near you, go buy a set of rubber place mats or a package of rubber shelf/drawer liner, and put under the rugs. The non-slip rug liners are made of the same type material. Depending on the size and number of rugs, a couple pf dollars would do it. I have a rug liner 6 ft long under a runner in a hallway, and it is made of exactly the same material as the place mats I got at the dollar store. It keeps the rug in place well.
If you have hot glue, you can smear hot glue on each corner on the back side, spreading so it won't leave a bump, then when it is dry, it should grab on to the floor and help with the slipping problem Back in the 'old days' when canning jars still used rubber rings, momma would save the old broken rings, and sew those to the back side of rugs to keep them from slipping.
