i admit it.
i am a sucker for anything that says "as seen on tv". i guess it is the lazy consumer in me...i think that that ONE amazing product may indeed solve some of my legitimate concerns.
yes---i have trouble opening opening jars!! maybe i need one of these??
and what if my house burns down because my dryer has too much lint??
maybe this gadget will ease my stress:
of course, not all of these products actually live up to their claims, as i sadly found out the duvet donuts. you can see my review of those here.
well, i was at the grocery store a while back when i spotted this:
i wasn't really sold, but then i noticed THIS claim:
a DESIGNERS DREAM??
oooo....too tempting! i HAD to get it, right?
"easy to use"
"keeps rugs in place"...(and can be used for scrapooking and all sorts of other stuff, which i wasn't interested in the least)
here has been the scene at my back door lately:
and even worse---the hallways leading to my garage, laundry room and mud room:
(PS--i ordered this rug from overstock for $35! it is currently out of stock, but you can view it here.)
very aggravating! (and sorry for the messy floors. when i took this picture, it was after we were cutting wood in the garage for our kids closets.)
here is what came in the package:
then , peel back the lining and place the rug where you want it.
yes---i found this to be true. it took a couple tries to get the hallway runner in the right spot, and it easily came up.
* easy to use?
yep. i thought it was very easy to use. i still have a lot left after laying both rugs--probably enough for two smaller rugs or one larger one.
*keeps rugs in place?well, this is the BIGGEST question, right? i mean, who care if it is easy to use and reposition able if it DOESNT WORK, right?
well, i have to say that i am really impressed! it really has worked wonders on both of my rugs!
i have had it down for about 6 weeks now, and neither rug has budged---even with the heavy traffic that the garage hallway gets...and we have been pummeled with snow, and the entire family has been coming in and out of the garage with snowy boots on, and the rug has stayed in place beautifully.
i was super impressed with instagrip. it has solved my issue of both of my rugs shifting and sliding around. worth the trip to the "as seen on tv" aisle in your local supermarket.
this item was purchased by me, and the review is my opinion about my experiences with this product.
