    You can staple or tack them down in a few spots using long staples or carpet tacks.

    I glue or sew the "hook" part of velcro (not the fuzzy half) on the underside. Works perfectly & easy to remove later if desired.

    go to a carpet store and have them cut a carpet pad into the size of the rug(s). Not very expensive.

    Good morning!! The above 2 suggestions may ? work but the damage what is under the rug---like like hardwood or manufactured floor. Do what I do, buy the felt like material that fits the size of your rug. I have oriental rugs and would not ever follow the above suggestion!! Lowes, Home Depot and if you watch/call discount stores you can save a few $$. Never ruin a rug regardless of cost. Most of the time you can't afford to replace or find what you want. I got mine from Neiman Marcus/Horchow store. Easy!!!! Good luck. Oh you can call your high end furniture store for help. Ljc

    Apply a bead of caulk to the corners, let dry and it won't scoot.

    Double sided rug tape from U-Line. It is removable and won't damage the carpet underneath. I have found thee rug pads don't work

    If your throw rugs are washable I wouldn't us the double stick tape. You'll have to remove and replace every time you wash them. Using a bead of latex caulk around the edges and make a large X in the middle will work and they'll still be washable. Just make sure the caulk is dry before using the rug. You can also get a roll of the rubber like shelf liner, cut strips and use fabric glue to attach them and they will also be washable.

    There is a sticky silicone pad that you get for the dashboard of your vehicle . This holds any phone ,coin etc and prevents them sliding off your dashboard,its not thick at all and a few of them should do the trick,bonus point is you can wash them in warm water and mild detergent. Check the internet for suppliers.

    The gripping shelf paper you get from the hardware, or dollar store works wonderfully.
