They sell a rubber type gel that is used to coat parts of certain hand tools; I'm thinking about buying a container and pouring or brushing this stuff on the back of the rugs. The product is sold at Lowes/Menards/Home Depot in tool departments. I don't know if the stuff dries hard or soft.
Just air dry toilet lid covers and bathroom rugs. Not meant for hot temps. When mine get to this point, I find another use for them, something always needs a padding.
peel all that stufff off, get a brush and that makes it faster to get rid of it too Dont need it anyway and it just goops up washer JWinkhart
i have have washed bathroom rugs in my washer. but i am scared to dry them in dryer. is it safe to dry it in dryer? It takes days together to dry completely if dried in the sun. i really need some help. Does anyone know about this?
You can use a piece inexpensive rubber matting, sold for this purpose, under the rug.
First thought is, how are you washing the rug? Putting it into the dryer will help to dry out the rubber ... also storing rubber back rugs in the closet will make the back deteriorate too.
Letting rugs air dry will extend the rugs life!
What do you do with rugs that are still very useable, but the backing is coming off? I have tried to remove it by washing, but made the biggest mess in my washroom and all of the backing did not come off. Thanks in advance for any help.
Don't throw the bathroom rugs out that have lost their rubber backing. Get as much of the crumbles off as possible. Get rubber shelf lining to hold them in place, and position the rugs in your bathroom as you enter. I must have 4 or 5 bathroom rugs in this condition, and would never consider throwing them out, because the carpet pile is still is excellent condition. Just remember when washing them, use cold water, then air dry!
