***WINNER PICKED 5/22 WITH RANDOM.ORG*** ***CONGRATULATIONS, JenO!!!***
her comment: I would use them on baby socks since we have a decent amount of linoleum in this house. I also might use them on the bottom of some ceramics that were handmade for us, as they need something to protect the furniture, and this would keep them from sliding around, too. :)
Once in a while, I come across a product so simple and ingenious, I immediately ask myself "why didn't I think of that?" This one was dreamed up by two moms on their daily mass-transit commute who wondered why only some of their kids' socks and none of their tights had non-slip soles. Their solution? Grippies are little rubbery shapes that adhere to the bottoms of your socks or tights to provide traction on slippery floors. They come in self-adhesive and iron-on varieties. (I prefer the stick-on version because I am lazy and abhor ironing.)
Grippies are clear so they blend in on whatever they are rendering slip-proof. Each package contains 16 stars and sells for $5, so they are very affordable. Once adhered, Grippies are machine washable, actually becoming even more, umm, grippy. You could also use them on the palms of gloves or on the knees of your beginning crawler's pants or legwarmers. Heck, you could even stick them to non-clothing items that you want to stay in place. Baby dishes, vases, you name it. I am also contemplating trying them in high heeled sandals to prevent slipping in sweaty foot season.
Support mompreneurs and buy some Grippies!
