If you ever saw the life hack of using a hot glue gun on the back of a rug to help with traction—try it! It totally works! We have a gorgeous new rug that was super slippery, and I decided to try it. I forgot my nemesis the hot glue gun would leave me with a bunch of little burns and a pointer finger in distress. If you have a big project to use hot glue on, I highly recommend an automatic glue gun!! Luckily, I had a back-up plan: I made my 9yr old do it. This was a win win because he was thrilled to use the hot glue gun, and it gave my poor finger a respite.
