Can this problem with the back of throw rugs be prevented?
I'm thinking that the rubber (or whatever it is) on the back of throw rugs comes off due to many washings and age. Right? The other side of the rugs looks just fine for every day use, but washing the rugs makes a mess in the washer. As I started wondering about these rugs, I realized they ARE maybe 15+ yrs old. Are ones being sold today any different? Can I buy rugs with nothing on the back and buy those "keep rugs in place" thingies to put under them?
