I have washed them in the washer a few times and they are falling apart. Tops are fine.

    Get some Elmer's spray adhesive and a roll of rubber nonskid backing from the dollar store . Cut to fit and spray to stick it on.

    I just brought a new one, and just washed it.....but now I am not putting in dryer! Grocery Outlet had some cheap....$7 looks like white pebbles.

    You can get some no slip pads at the Dollar store. It's usually sold in a roll. I just cut mine a bit smaller than my carpets and lay this down before my carpet. It keeps them firmly in place and you can remove them when you clean the floor.

    I like Cherie 's suggestion. I used hot glue to adhere the non stick rubber to my rugs.

    I'd probably glue a non skid rug pad to the back. Or use double face carpet tape to tape it to the floor. Or just buy a new one. They're not that expensive where I am.

      Thank you so much. But unfortunately these pieces were $20 each and there are 4 pieces. i think perhaps the non skid rug pad might work, but I wouldn't be able to launder them I don't think. I will check them out though. Thank you again. 🙂

    Try the carpet tape then. It'll keep them from moving but you'll have to replace it from time to time

    Yofrendonna, thanks for asking this. I just washed my bathroom rugs and the same thing happened. Or as someone suggested, the dryer might be the culprit. Like you, I have 4 matching rugs. I think I might try Cherie's suggestion. Good luck to both of us!

      Hi Nancy! Glad I'm not alone! Good luck and let me know if you have any success. Mine have started to fray and lose yarn. If I can't find something to sort of apply to the back with a brush or roller I may follow Cherie's suggestion as well.
