Ok, so ever since I moved to our recent apartment a year ago, one thing I was determined to do was to actually get our damage deposit back… for once, I just want to get a damage deposit returned to us. So I decided to buy a ton of rugs in effort to save our floors. Four runners and five area rugs to be exact. Only thing is, these rugs just WILL NOT stay in place.
About a month and a half ago I decided to try Uglu. The corners of one of my area rugs was starting to curl up, the runners were running away, and the rug under my computer desk and kitchen table were always wrinkled and bunched up, especially where the most weight was put onto them. My runners were probably the worst. Always shifting and bunching up. I had to re adjust them at least twice a day. Almost more of a hassle than it was worth. And since that time, I have to say, most of my rugs have not shifted and I haven’t tripped even once.
I am so glad I finally found a solution to my rug problem, and to all of you out there reading, you have no idea how happy this has made me. My area rugs are finally secured and flat, I’m not tripping, and I’m pleased with the look of my floors and curtains.
Who would have thought something so small and seemingly insignificant would be such a great household tool. That’s right, you read me right, I called it a TOOL. Just as you would use nails and a hammer to secure your picture frames to the wall, you can fasten just about anything to anything with the Uglu. As I said, you can use it for just about anything.
So not only was I able to use the Uglu to fix my rugs in place, I also used them on my curtains. For those of you who work graveyard shift, or have a spouse that does like me, you know how important it is to get some decent sleep during the day. Ever see those tacky windows with cardboard, foil, or garbage bags covering their windows to block out the light? I have. Though I have never had to resort to such measures, my windows still looked pretty tacky on the inside with my curtains fastened all around the edges with masking tape and packing tape. Finally, after about a year of looking at that ugly tape, I was able to take it all down and now my curtains are all I see. One thing I noticed after some of the colder nights when I had to turn the heater on at night, which happens to be below our bedroom window, was that after a lot of heat exposure, the curtains would come free of the Uglu. So on the colder days we constantly had to press the curtains back to the wall.
I honestly don’t even see and end to the possibilities of other uses.
This little sticky stuff is super strong, so strong, I used it on a bathroom rug and it ripped the rubber clear off the bottom in a perfect little patch where the Uglu had once been. When trying to remove a piece of Uglu from the wall, I had a little trouble, so I used a second piece to try to help pick it up off the wall…..lets just say I am missing a chunk of wall…
Although it might be too strong for its own good on some surfaces, I had no problem when removing it from the carpet. Aside from the couple of issues I experienced, I still like the product, and I would definitely keep buying it.
