I notice redhatterb's post was Sept'09, but thought I'd add an updated version. Hope she tried it, I'm sure it works/worked. My friend was grumbling because her queen-size mattress kept sliding off the box springs when they'd sit up in bed to read or watch tv or such...they have no headboard, so it sits alone on the floor. I had a small chunk of this stuff that I'd used to line drawers to keep utensils an' such from getting tangled, so we put it across the top end between mattress & box springs to test it. It held fairly well, but hubby had to boost the mattress back up a bit once. I've got some more in storage somewhere, so we'll try adding more soon. A thin sheet of foam rubber would do, too, can find in bed-size sheets I'm sure. Or them egg-carton type mattress pads would work, too. Anything to be rid of the slip-n-slide problems is very welcome!
I think the mats that you put under area rugs and scatter rugs to keep them in one place would work too. I have been thinking about trying this under my queen size mattress. My mattress has a tendency to slide to one side of the bed.
I think she is talking about a shelf liner like this:

It has a rubber like finish and no adhesive on it.
I do not understand this. I want to try it, but think I need more details. I do not understand what product to buy (not quite sure what shelf liners you're referring to) and I am not sure about the process after that either. Can you help? Thanks!
I have a slip cover on my wing chair. Every time when we sit on it the cushion seams to move and I have to always straighten it out. Is there a homemade solution that I can get to stick in between the seat and the back of the chair.

I cut small-diameter pvc pipes the correct lenght to push down between the cushions and back of my sofa as well as between the cushion and arms. Nothing will keep a slip cover straight forever but the pvc pipe worked better than anything else for me.
