Use Drawer Liner To Keep Couch Cushions In Place

If you have a chair or couch with cushions that perpetually slide off, lay non-slip drawer liner — intended for padding and stabilising kitchen implements and glassware — beneath them to keep everything in place.

Lifehacker reader cramill shares this simple tip to keep your cushions from sliding out from under you:

Do you have couch cushions that keep sliding out of place? Try putting a sheet of non-slip drawer/shelf liner under the cushions to keep them from sliding out of place. It works like a charm!

Alternatively, if you have a lot of cushions to keep in place or a large couch, you could buy a rug pad. Rug pads are essentially the same non-slip material as drawer liners but sized appropriately for a large area rug.

Have a tip or trick to help your fellow readers deal with household annoyances like slippery cushions, squeaky doors or the like? Let's hear about it in the comments. Thanks cramill!


    What a wonderfully simple idea!! i will definitely have to try this one, as when ever the kids are on the lounge the cushion always comes off!!
