View Full Version : What to use to make a non skid surface on slippers
11-21-2007, 08:02 AM
I really didn't know where or how to ask this question but hopefully someone can help!
Since it's getting cold I bought ds a pair of fleece slippers to wear in the house and for short car trips where putting on shoes isn't necessary. I put them on him last night at home and even with the dots of non-skid on the bottle he was still slipping all around.
Is there something i can put on the bottom to increase the non-skid surface?
Do they still sell that puff paint type stuff, would that work?

That's what I was going to suggest - either the puffy paint or the Tulip brand paint in the tubes (you know what I'm talking about?)

I was going to suggest fabric paint. ;) It's in the craft section.

Just make sure you let it dry overnight.

They sell this rubbery/foamy fabric stuff at the fabric store that's use for grip under area rugs. I'd try hot gluing a little of that to the bottoms.

Sophia- Good thought... maybe i'll wait to do anything until after tomorrow. I bought them for him to wear for the Thanksgiving Day parade in St Louis since it's going to be like 30 degrees outside!

Oh, Fabric Paint - what a clever name :p LOL.

If that doesn't work, another suggestion would be those rubber sticky things that you put on the floor of bathtubs to prevent slipping.
I had a pair of dance shoes in high school that I did this for and it it worked wonders. I just cut up the tub stickers and pieced them together on teh soles of the shoes.
