Drawer LinerDon't spend a fortune on expensive non-skid items. Instead, use pieces of rubberized shelf-liner to create a non-slip surface. A simple square makes a great portable non-slip surface or try super-gluing a circle to the bottom of your favorite mixing bowl.

Note: I wouldn't recommend you glue this stuff to anything you plan to heat using the stovetop, oven, or microwave.

Another use for rubber shelf liner is to place a scrap piece under your sewing machine. This is handy and keeps my sewing machine from moving while I'm using it.

To keep the shower soap bar from slipping off its designated place in the shower, I cut a bar-sized triangle of rubber waffle drawer liner. It allows the soap to drain, but keeps it in place. When it wears out I cut a new one.

Vinyl spongy rolls of drawer liner are so much fun. I use them to keep anything and everything where it belongs, such as booster seat on dining chair, pics straight on wall when attached to back of frame, under my keyboard, knick/knacks, telephones, also to keep a mattress from sliding around.

A few days ago I tried to put a magnetic whiteboard on our refrigerator. It would not stay put, it just kept sliding down because of the slick surface of the refrigerator.

Scissors, ruler and Sharpie marker are all that might be needed to get 4 place mats out of a "Dollar Store" roll of shelf liner.

This tip will come in handy for those who still use eye liner pencils. I used to have trouble with the pencil sliding in my fingers when I went to use the hand-held sharpener that came with the eye liner.

I solved this problem with a small square of non-skid drawer liner.

What do you think about using liner on the rotating plate inside the microwave? It really could and would, be helpful if safe.
:) Thanks so much!

If the liner is silicone it would be safe. I would not chance it if it were not.

Because of what it s made of,all sorts of chemicals within this product, that give off fumes, surrounding everything cooked or warmed up.(Note) most items will tell you if they are microwavable.Be safe!

If you are looking for something to keep the microwave clean, I would avoid anything rubber or plastic. Paper is wasteful so I would avoid that, although I have friends who swear by the super cheap paper plates as liners.

You could use a microwave safe glass plate. Just be very, very careful when you remove it and check frequently for cracks. I recently burned my finger pulling a glass bowl from the microwave. I did not realize it had a crack and while it did not break in the microwave (I have had that happens) it conducted heat differently and it got very hot. Ouchies!

Safety first with the microwave!

Are you wanting the liner to help contain spills or are you wanting something to keep dishes from 'slipping' or moving around?

I many times use a microwave 'pan' under something that has a tendency to overflow.

If you are wanting something with gripping power then something like this may work. These are oven and microwave safe (see description half way down page).

Will shelf liner cut to fit inside a spiked caster cup protecter to help so that the bed leg won't slip inside the cup. The bed leg is 2 1/2 inches and the caster cup is 3 inches.

I would stuff something inside the cup to stabilize the leg. The shelf liner may be too stiff or slippery. You will have to try it out.

THE SHELF LINER THAT I WOULD USE IS RUBBERIZED. NOTHING SEEMS TO SLIP WHEN PLACED ON TOP OF A KITCHEN COUNTERTOP.

HOPING THIS WILL WORK IN THE CASTER CUP. THE BED LEG THAT WOULD SIT IN THE CASTER CUP IS FLAT.

Hi,

I would use the non-slip material that you put under small rugs to keep them from slipping. I have seen similar material at the grocery store for $1.00. It is really nice, and nothing slips on it.

Here is an example:

However, I like the ones for $3 that are rolled up and sold along the kitchen tools section at the grocery stores.

Blessings,

Robyn

Non slip liners for shelves and drawers can be used to help open tough lids on jars. It's a great way to repurpose the last of the roll.

Nonskid shelf liner, that you can pick up at the dollar store or at yard sales, has all sorts of uses.
