If you knit or crochet slipper socks, what do you use in the bottom to stop them slipping on hard floors? I want to make some for my little grandchildren to use when they are here but I have laminate floors and don’t want them sliding about!
Thank you !

Aw, go on, let them slide?

I know, I’m a spoil sport!! ?

Hmmm, what about stitching the soles with a length of that stuff on a roll which prevents rugs from slipping!
I use something similar on a slippery tray. Works a treat.

I randomly googled your query, hope this helps.

Thank you both for the ideas!
I have ordered a sheet of suede and will see how that works out. ?

My friend knits socks and slippers and told me she buys some special non-slip stuff which she puts in spots along the soles. She called it glue.

Other outlets are available

Oh, goodness, that nearly filled a page!

You can use silicon bathroom sealant on knitted socks to make them non slip. Honestly, that’s not a joke. There are tutorials on YouTube, I’m not smart enough to link
SILICONE SOLES, how to add non skid soles to knit and crochet slippers. This is the title of a film. I’ve done this and it really works . It’s flexible, stretchy and really nonslip but it does take ages to dry.

I second Callistemon's suggestion of those dot things - I've used them and, importantly, they work grin
Survived my brutally efficient washing machine too.
