Question:

darned ole rug!?

I just purchased an indoor-outdoor rug for my kitchen. I thought maybe it would wear better and not show every little spill or dirt.I had a black rug in there before and it showed everything.My problem is that I can't seem to get the wrinkles out of it.Down the sides of it are ripples and they won't go away. Therefore it won't lie flat on the floor and I'm afraid someone might trip ovr it and get hurt.

Answer:

If you haven't already, try a rug liner. These sit on the floor between the hard floor and the rug and help to keep the rug in place. Also, gently iron the rug to try to remove the wrinkles - just be careful if there is an olefin content in the rug, as it is prone to being easily damaged from ironing. The final option is double-sided carpet tape - there are some kinds easily available on the market that are guaranteed to be removable from most hard surfaces with minimal effort. Good luck!

double sided tape or industural strength velcro to adhere it to the floor...the velcro will work better...get it at your local hardware store (lowes, Homedepot, ace etc..)

you could stretch it out and tack it down with some small nails?
