Non-Slip Soles for my Crocheting or Knit slippers can sometimes be time-consuming. Very often I rely on the old faithful puffy fabric paint. Other times I will sew on those non-slip shelf liners that are used in kitchen shelves to keep your drinking glasses and dishes from sliding off the shelves. Those options work well but many times they are time-consuming and don’t always look very good. I never want to give someone a gift that could endanger them and slippery soles can be very dangerous. I had made a pair for my aunt and mother, so I definitely wanted them to be safe while wearing these comfy slippers.
While at my knitting class my teacher mentioned that she uses a different method. She said it’s fast and seems to work pretty well Well, the fast part had me intrigued. She shared a method of using a quick spray method. She said she uses a product called “Rust-0leum Leak Seal.” It is a spray that is used to repair leaks on rain gutters, skylights, cracked cement etc. She told me it’s easily available at hardware stores like HomeDepot Armed with this new information I made a quick trip to my local Home Depot store. I went straight to the paint department and asked the salesperson for assistance. They took me to the caged area where they keep spray paint and other items which can only be sold to adults. He unlocked the cage and asked me if I wanted the clear coat or a color coat. I chose the clear coat so that my slippers could look more natural. I also bought some blue painters tape. I rushed home anxious to try out this new method and create Non-Slip soles.
