Slipping fabric is unsightly, whether it is your slipcover slipping and sliding on your leather couch, or your tablecloth slipping off your wooden table. It can also be a dangerous tripping hazard if the fabric is underfoot, like a homemade area rug. But the fabric can be secured. No matter where your slippery fabric is in the home, you can keep it in place with all-purpose, non-slip fabric or carpet padding.

Measure the length and width of the piece of fabric that is slipping, if it is an area rug or other piece of fabric underfoot. If the piece of fabric is a slipcover or tablecloth, measure the surface that the fabric covers, such as the tabletop or the seat area of the couch.
Use sharp scissors to cut the non-slip padding to meet your measurements. Use a padding without an adhesive backing, so it does not damage your carpet or furniture.
Place the non-slip padding under the fabric, across the table top or across the seat cushions on your couch. Place the fabric back over the padding.
