They have that stuff in the grocery stores here (Publix) but you probably can get it in Target or K-mart too.

They use the same stuff under fancy rugs from sliding on the hardwood floor.

We use them to line the cabinets in our Airstream to keep things from sliding too much while traveling. Works for them most part.

I love that stuff but don't use it under cutting boards because I don't want to figure out how to wash it effectively. I do use under my keyboard and mousepad.

The easiest way to wash it, skillet, is to put it into a zippered mesh bag and throw it into a cold water wash in your washer. I do that all the time. Take it out of the bag. Shake the excess water out of it and drape it over a line or hang it over a towel to dry. Good as new. I've been doing this for years.

Once a week or so I do a load of wash just for kitchen towels, dish cloths, pot holders and these foam pads for the cutting boards. I just toss them all into the washer with the detergent and a cup of bleach in the dispenser and go. Then it all goes into the dryer. No problems.

I also use the shelf liner to keep my cutting boards from sliding around. They're good for opening jar lids too. I saw another tip on good eats about using them to peel garlic, but I haven't tried that one yet.

I also use a 5-foot section on each side of our bed between the mattress and box springs to keep the sheets from "creeping." I have another section underneath the the cushions of my breakfast room chairs to keep the cushions from sliding around.

Thanks for the tip, Katie! I have been trying to find a solution to this very problem with my mattress!
