      Hard to get excited about a rug pad ,but this one is truly exceptional. Tight woven and nice thickness that adds a plushness to any rug. It was easy to trim using scissors and has a nice backing that stays in place. Happy with my purchase, would buy again.

      I bought it along with an 8 x 10, but ended up not needing it as the dining room table is plenty heavy to hold down a rug. So I cut this for my area rugs, and I am very happy.

      Packaging was perfect, no tears or cuts. Put pad under a 8x10 area rug over carpet. So far no bunching with the area rug!

    • Supreme and Durable pads -- can't tell difference
      Verified Purchase

      I purchased the 8x10 Supreme Felted Dual Surface rug pad and also an 8x10 Durable Hard Surface and Carpet rug pad (which costs a little bit more than the Supreme). The main difference that I have seen was in how they were packaged. The Supreme was sent folded up in a big square, the Durable was sent rolled on a heavy cardboard tube. Both arrived in good condition, and both flattened out equally. I have had them both for about 3 weeks and really can't tell any difference between them except that the felt on the Supreme is perhaps a bit scratchier, and maybe a slight bit thicker than the Durable (which cost more). Save your pennies and get the Supreme, unless you have a desire to have an 8' heavy cardboard tube as well. ;-)

    • Thick, but smelly
      Verified Purchase

      This pad is nice and thick, and it has rubber on one side to grip the floor. No complaints on its function. Oh, but it stinks. After we unwrapped it, I put it outside for the day. When we brought it back in, the smell was still strong enough to make me nauseated. Back outside it went for another day, and still no better. We finally just put it down. Now that the rug is over it, it doesn't smell anymore, but I don't ever want to pick up that rug, because that stench cannot be anything but harmful.

    • Terrific product
      Verified Purchase

      Because of the heavy traffic in my family room, I needed something that would really hold my area rug in place. I have hard wood floors and the area rug was always roaming. It was a little tough to cut, but the results were impressive. The rug has not moved an inch since I put it in place over a month ago. With the extra pieces, I put them under certain areas of my sectional sofa and they have not moved a bit! I was thrilled with the results. The only negative is that is is not as cushiony as regular carpet padding, but carpet padding will not hold the rug in place at all.

      This pad is 1/4-inch thick and is everything that the description says it is. I like my knowing that my rug and floor are protected. The lifetime warranty helped me pick this pad over the others. This pad has added comfort to my beautiful, expensive rug. Overstock has always delivered great products and service, and has once again exceeded my expectations.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "This pad will work for jute rugs?"

      • A:

        I used this pad under my jute rug and it works great!

      • A:

        Yes it's thick but should work well for jute rugs. You may have to trim it so it's well away from the edges of your rug.

      • A:

        I don't know.

      • A:

        This is a fairly thick pad. If you don't mind a bit of 'heft' under the jute, then by all means, it works very well. If you want a lower profile, I would use something thinner.

    • Q:

      "9x12. They're easily trimmed if it stick out a bit anywhere."

      • A:

        I purchased the 9x12, but we did end up cutting it. It is a very plush, thick pad, so if you bring it to the edge of the carpet, the carpet will not lay on the floor and you will see the padding. But I am not sure that we cut it as small as 8x10

      • A:

        You don't want a pad that is that much smaller than the rug. You want it as close to the rug size as possible then trim as needed (not a pleasant undertaking, I imagine but it's what is needed.) Previous answer is correct.

      • A:

        I purchased a8x10 for my 9x 12 and it worked well

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "I purchased a 9x12 rug. Should I purchase a 9x12 rug pad or an 8x10?"

      • A:

        9X12 Rug Pad

      • A:

        I would get the 9x12. You can cut the pad easily enough if it's too big (I did this with a pair of plain kitchen scissors), but 8x10 would be too small.

      • A:

        Purchase the same size as the rug. 9x12 purchase 9x12 pad. You can easily cut the pad underneath a little if it sticks out past the rug. Like another person commented, you don't want a smaller one, or it will not lay the rug flat on it.

      • A:

        I wouldn't get a smaller pad. The pad I got was slightly larger and it is easy to cut if needed. Love the pad with my rug!!

      • A:

        You should purchase the same size pad and trim as needed.

      • A:

        You should purchase the 9 x 12. You want one closest to the rug size even if you need to cut a bit off.

      • A:

        I would definitely get the 9x12 and trim if necessary; this is a much better pad than the old rubber type!

      • A:

        I ordered the same size and it fit perfectly.

      • A:

        Get the 9 x 12 or there'll be a "dip down" for the missing area. If for some reason it's a tad too big, you can use your kitchen shears to trim it, but ours was an exact measurement. (The pads are GREAT.)

      • A:

        Agree, 9x12, but anticipate that you might have to trim the edges for a correct fit. Mine was not cut evenly.

      • A:

        I would recommend getting a 9X12 rug pad and cutting it down two inches around the perimeter of the rug. That's what I did as this pad is fairly think and if you get the 8X10 pad for a 9X12 you will have a significant dip where there is no rug pad. You can always google what size rug pad to get for your area rug and see what others think.

      • A:

        Yes you should buy the same size rug pad as your area rug. If the pad is too small, the rug won't lay right.

      • A:

        Purchase the pad closest to the size of the rug. I did and it worked out perfect on my large rug.

      • A:

        Definitely purchase the size to match your rug. I had to trim mine just a bit; I think because it was not square. But I wanted the pad to come to rug edge.

      • A:

        You should always purchase the same size rug, it will be noticeable if you do not and you will feel the ledge under foot.

      • A:

        I purchased an 8x10 for my 8x10 rug and had to cut it to fit right. But, I think a smaller one would make the rug uneven. I'd go with the 9x12.

      • A:

        I would get bigger and cut to size. You want it to fit right to the edges. Love mine

      • A:

        i purchased the same size. Once can always cut a bit off rather than have an uneven rug.

      • A:

        It's probably better to buy the larger rug pad because it works well if the pad is about one inch shorter than the length or width of the rug. I originally bought a smaller rug pad and noticed the ridge of the pad showing through the top of the rug. I also went to Home Depot and bought a pair of Wiss 10 inch scissors which cut the rug pad to exactly the size I wanted. I tried using a utility knife and it didn't work well. I took along a piece of the rug pad and tried the scissors out in the store. I should mention that my rug is not a thick one, so experiences with rug pads will be slightly different. You can't go wrong buying the larger rug pad. Good luck.

      • A:

        Get the 9x12. This pad can easily be trimmed with scissors.

    • Q:

      "Is the 8 x 10 rug pad the correct size for a 7'10 x 10'2 rug? If not, what is the correct rug pad?"

      • A:

        This can be easily cut 1 foot, if it sticks out, which it might not do. You don't want a smaller one, or it will not lay the rug flat on it.

      • A:

        When I was shopping for rug pads, I found info about sizing rug pads on the internet. They said: A rug pad should be slightly smaller in size than the actual size of the rug. If the rug pad is slightly smaller than the rug, then the edges of the rug will taper to the floor. This prevents any trip hazard by a heel of a shoe catching on the edge of the rug. This also prevents premature wear and curling at the edge of the rug as it is walked on. The final reason why the rug pad should be smaller than the rug is so that the edge of the pad is not seen. The way to determine what size your rug pad should be is simple. The rug pad should be about two inches less than your rug size on all four sides. So if the size of your rug size is 8’x10’, then the rug pad size should be 7’10”x9’10”, a total of two inches less in each dimension, which is the same as one inch less on all four sides. (Another company that custom cut pads said they cut between 1" - 1.5" smaller than the rug.)

      • A:

        I purchased an 8 x 10 rug and an 8 x 10 pad. The rug was slightly smaller than the pad, which required several inches to be trimmed from the pad. Just lay your rug on the pad and use it as a guide for trimming. I trimmed the pad so it was approx. half to three quarter inch smaller than the rug, that way it won't show...

      • A:

        You can always order a bigger rug pad and cut it to match the rug size. I cut my pad with kitchen utility scissors. It's okay if a small part of the rug doesn't have rug pad but not too much. 2 inches around will not have rug pad under it if you order the 8x10, depends on who will notice and what room it's in and if it bothers you.

      • A:

        You will have to trim the padding slightly, but yes I wouldn't go any smaller.

      • A:

        It is recommended that the mat be 1 inch less than the rug on all four sides. Most of the mats can be trimmed down with scissors as needed, but wait until you receive the rug (some rugs will vary a couple of inches from the stated size--sometimes larger and sometimes smaller) and then mark it by placing the rug on top of the mat. To make it easier, place the edge of one of the corners of the rug on one of the corners of the mat (with one inch less on each side of the corner). By doing that, you may only need to trim 2 sides rather than all four sides.

      • A:

        the pad needs to be of the same size as the rug

      • A:

        Yes but you will have to trim it for the 7'10' side so it doesn't stick out.

      • A:

        Yes it can easily be trimmed to fit perfectly.

      • A:

        yes the pad is very easy to trim with scissors to custom fit you needs. Pad is great quality.

      • A:

        Yes, but you may have to cut it down a touch. I made the mistake of getting an 8 X 10 rug pad for my 9 X 12 rug. Don't do that. Get the correct size and cut it down if you need to. Otherwise, you will see the rug pad line under the rug.

      • A:

        The 8x10 can be easily cu down and works well.

    • Q:

      "Will this keep my area rug which is on top of my wall to wall carpeting from bunching up or moving?"

      • A:

        Exactly. Nice and thick, tho, so maybe too much height for on top of a carpet?

      • A:

        I am sure it would keep a rug from sliding on another carpet. Mine is on hardwood floors and it keeps the rug from moving even when 2 150lb dogs decide to play and wrestle on in it.,

      • A:

        not sure, mine is on hardwood.

      • A:

        Yes it will.

    • Q:

      "Does this pad help resist spills from going through to a wooden floor?"

      • A:

        The pad is so thick that spills would have a difficult time penetrating. I have used these pads for years as I have hardwood in my entire home...even in my bedrooms. They are the best pads.

      • A:

        I have a wooden floor and with the thickness of the rug, plus the thickness of the rug, we have no issues with it not protecting the floor.

      • A:

        yes, it has a rubber backing. i love these pads, excellent product.

      • A:

        We haven't had any issues. And we have spills all the time

      • A:

        I just did a little experiment. I put a towel underneath the pad and rolled my rug back. I poured a little water directly on the pad. It took a couple of minutes but the water did come through the gripper side of the pad. So I'd say it might buy you some extra time to grab a towel to clean a spill, but the pad won't block the spill from getting to the floor. So resist, yes somewhat. Waterproof, no. Hope that helps!

      • A:

        They also have a rubber layer that is in contact with the floor. Which would prevent a small spill from getting to the floor.

      • A:

        Never had a spill go through the carpet to the pad so can't answer but it's a thick dense pad so should help

      • A:

        Yes it does! My husband spilled a FULL glass of milk on my rug within 2 weeks of buying it (and the pad)! I grabbed a towel and mopped up the rug, then rolled it to take to the cleaners. I went back to the mess. The pad had some milk on top of it, but it did not penetrate the pad or go down to the wood. This is a very good pad! Glad I spent the extra money on it!

      • A:

        It has a layer of rubber (or some kind of a backing) under the batting that makes up the pad. I do not think a spill could make it to the floor. Good luck! I would recommend it.

      • A:

        the spill will go through if not cleaned up quickly. Def. a good pad on hardwood floors

      • A:

        It would resist spills but not block entirely.

      • A:

        Excellent pad- very dense and thick. I actually spilled a drink on my rug, and it did not soak through this pad.

      • A:

        I would say yes. I just laid it this week but I did spill some tea. I blotted it fairly quickly and the rug was on top but I did pick it up and there was NOTHING on the wood. I checked just to make sure there was no moisture. It sat just long enough for me to go to the utility room and get a towel but it's about 3 rooms away. Had it been a larger amount of liquid, I may have grabbed a bathroom towel quickly. Anyway....I think that with this pad and a rug, you should be fine. I also just checked again to ensure the pad didn't retain moisture and there is NOTHING in that spot. Hope that helps.

      • A:

        Wooden floors and no problem with spills penetrating. The pads are great.

      • A:

        I agree about spills not penetrating. The pad is super and despite some reviews, does NOT have an odor at all, right out of the package.

      • A:

        Yes it helps because it is so thick, but a large spill would still seep through and need to be dried.

      • A:

        Fortunately, I have not had anything spill on my rug, but I will say, unless it is a massive about of liquid, the pad is very thick and don't think a small spill of liquid would penetrate all the way to the hardwood floor. By the way, the pad does make my area rug feel nice and thick under foot.

      • A:

        Yes, absolutely! One side is your standard course recycled looking fabric, the second side is rubberized for spills and grip (so no sliding area rugs, ughhh, i hate that!)

      • A:

        The pad is thick enough to prevent minor spills from going thru and it has a rubber backing to make it non-sick. I think it would be safe unless a large amount of liquid or not cleaned up in appropriate amount of time.

      • A:

        Yes, it worked for me. I have purchased 6 and they work perfectly.

    • Q:

      "i want to buy a natural woven carpet can you recommend the best pad to use we have hardwood floors ."

      • A:

        Ditto, cheapette. This is hardly "rubber", This is the thinnest layer of a material that doesn't stick but holds the rug in place to prevent slipping, like the rubberized pads ae supposed to hold without sticking to anything. I have mine over a wood floor with no effect on the floor. I like this pad lots more than the rubberized pads which can actually stick a little over time though not intended to.

      • A:

        Not sticky at all! Just eliminates any ability for the rug to move on an otherwise very clean surface, i.e. wood. A good purchase for your rug truly.

      • A:

        Mohawk Home Premium Felted Non-Slip Dual Surface Rug Pad . I love this pad. Its perfect for the rug we purchased.

      • A:

        Love the felt pads. They're thicker without being "squishy" and they're not rubberized, don't break down. The only thing I'll put under a rug!

      • A:

        Mohawk is the best we've found so far go with the felted non-slip. It's rubber on one side and felt on the other, which keeps the actual rug from moving. We have these under all of our rugs on both tile and hardwood floors in both of our homes.

      • A:

        We have hardwood throughout the house and the felt rug pads work best.

      • A:

        I put the Mohawk Home Premium Felted Non-Slip Dual Surface Rug Pad (8' x 10') under my leather and rope woven rug. It is working like a charm. Because my rug has twisted leather strips woven in it as well as rope type natural fibers, some of the twists are uncomfortable to step on. The Mohawk pad alleviates that problem altogether. I have hard wood floors, too, but the previous owner of my house had rugs down and I have rugs down so the sunlight has yellowed the wood floors that are not covered with rugs. I have no idea if the rug pad will do any damage to my floors, but since I have to get them refinished one day anyway, I'm not concerned. I haven't had the rug pad long enough to see any change in the wood floor.

      • A:

        I love the felted rug pads. I now have them under all my rug except the dining room table. I too have hardwood floors.

      • A:

        I'm not a fan of rug pads. I just purchased a rug for my living room I'm not a fan of rug pads. I just purchased a 6x9 rug for my living room and bought a roll of Roberts Rug Gripper which works so much better than the pads.

    • Q:

      "What is the product used to make it sticky? Does that sticky leave a residue in hard wood floors? Does the sticky material react or change the color of the wood?"

      • A:

        The rubber side is not sticky and does not leave a residue or change the color of the wood - it just keeps the rug from slipping.

      • A:

        One side is just sort of rubber-ish. I did not put the rubber side down on my new hardwood floors, as I used a rug so big, it did not matter. However, I really doubt it would affect the hardwood floor at all.

      • A:

        The backing doesn't leave residue or discolor our bamboo hard wood floors. Doesn't completely stop thr rug from sliding, but the best I've found so far.

      • A:

        I have hard wood floors, and I have not noticed any change due to the rubber backing on the pad.

      • A:

        Agreed. Not sticky. I put it over bamboo laminate and it works wonderfully.

      • A:

        It is just a rubbery material that does not slide easily on wood floors. No residue has been left on the floor and no discoloration and I have had mine down for months. I would not recommend placing the other side down as it would likely scratch your hardwood if it slipped.

      • A:

        that is correct. Don't get it wet and you will be fine.

      • A:

        No residue just makes it have more cushion on your feet.

      • A:

        One side is rubber which stops it from sliding on hardwood floors. It hasn't left a residue or changed the color on my floors.

      "The Mohawk Supreme dual Surface Rug, is the felt side or the rubber side to be down on hardwood floor?"

      • A:

        Rubber side down

      • A:

        Rubber so it grips the floor

      • A:

        rubber side down, so the rubber meets the road and rugs doesn't slip. Felt side up to cushion effect of people and furniture

      • A:

        I use rubber side down on hardwood and it works great!

      • A:

        It provides a soft padding on my hardwood floor and gives height and softness to the area carpet.

      • A:

        The rubber side goes down to prevent the slipping.

      • A:

        Package label said rubber side down if placing on top of wood floor and felt side down if placing on carpeted floor. I did the latter and still had since cushion under area rug I bought.

      • A:

        Rubber side is down on my hardwood floor and I have two large strong dogs that race across my rug and it no longer moves!

      • A:

        Mine is on laminate floor and is not sticky.

      • A:

        I've had the rug pad in place for two weeks. It has not discolored my hard wood floor. It is not sticky, it is a textured rubber like surface that holds the rug in place.

      • A:

        Place the rubber side down on hardwood. The other side may scratch hardwood if it slips.

    • Q:

      "I bought 2 rugs one is 6'7" x 9'8" & 2'3" x 8' what size pad would you recommend? "

      • A:

        The rug pad should be about one inch less than your rug size on all four sides.

      • A:

        I would suggest getting a rug pad that is slightly smaller than the rug size if possible as these pads are quite thick and will be visible if they are the exact same size of the rug you are placing underneath. So, for the 6'7" x9'8" rug, a 6 x 9 pad would be perfect. If you cannot find a size that is slightly smaller, these are very easy to cut down to size - just use very sharp scissors and trim to your desired measurements.

      • A:

        I agree with Joey. I have bought a couple of these pads. Both were a little long so I just cut them down to size. Very easy to cut a nice sharp edge and it does not shed/unravel at all.

        Yes, I know it at least comes in a 9 x 12.

      • A:

        I got an 8'x10'

    • Q:

      "does this pad stop the vinyl from changing color ?"

      • A:

        The pad is designed to secure the rug, it should not have an effect on vinyl.

    • Q:

      "is this product washable ?"

      • A:

        No, it is not

    • Q:

      "Does it smell horribly bad?"

      • A:

        I didn't notice any smell

      • A:

        Yes it has a bad smell but if you put the rug on top it is not noticeable.

      • A:

        Yes, mine smelled, to the point where I had a constant headache. It was most likely due to the recycled content. I laid mine out and lightly sprayed Febreeze on it and let it dry a few times. It seemed to do the trick.

      • A:

        No it does not have any smell

      • A:

        We could smell it the first day and then never gave it a thought after that.

      • A:

        none noticed

      • A:

        No, I did not notice any smell.

      • A:

        I didn't notice any smell and I'm pretty sensitive to that stuff. Great quality too.

      • A:

        No, It does not smell bad. There was a newness smell when opened - lasted a couple of hours. The next day didn't notice a smell at all.

      • A:

        I've had the pad down for several months and don't notice any odor at all, nor did I when I originally unwrapped it. It's a great pad.

      • A:

        I do not notice any odor.

      • A:

        It had no smell at all ! I have ordered two of these over the last year and no problems with either one .

      • A:

        No. I didn't have a problem

      • A:

        Doesn't smell at all. Works great

      • A:

        That was a while ago. If it had any odor it was not sufficiently bad that it was memorable. All is fine now and I am very happy with it.

      • A:

        No I was not aware of any particular smell. It did not smell bad

      • A:

        Not at all!

      • A:

        No. There was no noticeable smell.

      • A:

        No smell at all! Nice quality rug pad!

      • A:

        I didn't notice an odor.

    • Q:

      "What is the correct fit of a pad to a rug? That is, how much should the edges of the rug overhang the pad?"

      • A:

        A rug pad should be slightly smaller in size than the actual rug to allow the edges of the rug to taper to the floor and so that the edge of the pad isn't seen. Our dual surface rug pad can be easily cut down to size, about 1-2 inches less than the rug on all four sides. We hope this information is helpful!

      • A:

        No--but it was easily trimmed to fit my rug!

      • A:

        I bought 3 of them and didn't think that they smelled at all. I know what you're talking about too....

      • A:

        When purchasing a rug pad, the correct size to order is 2" shorter on all sides than your "Area Rug" so the rug will cascade off the pad prevent tripping, and looks well.

    • Q:

      "what side do you put down for over carpet"

      • A:

        The felt side is directly underneath the carpet and the sticky side goes on the floor.

      • A:

        The felt side goes on top to hold onto the back side of the rug and the rubber on the bottom grips the floor.

      • A:

        Felt side up, sticky side down.

      • A:

        I can't really remember what the two sides looked like, but whichever seemed a better "grip" went directly on our tile floor. The nice surprise for me was that the pad was exactly the right size and didn't have to be trimmed to fit the area rug I purchased from Overstock. This is a very good quality pad and much better than the thin pads that are available.

      • A:

        If you are putting it on carpeting put the sticky side up to prevent slipping.

      • A:

        This is a rug pad designed to be used on ceramic or wood floor. There are other rug pads for carpet that have a different grip system. You may be able to sue it depending on the type of carpet you have. Put the rubber grip side down and the felt side up.

      • A:

        The rubber coated side is face down on the floor and the softer felt side is face up. This way it will grip the floor and prevent the rug from sliding.

      • A:

        either side no differemce

      • A:

        The felt side goes under your carpet. The rubber side faces the floor so that the carpet doesn't slip.

    • Q:

      "any time I see latex as a material component, I always worry about the smell - any issues with this rug mat smelling of rubber?"

      • A:

        No smell at all. Glad we purchased this instead of a thin pad.

      • A:

        No smell at all. Pad holds rug in place. It's not thick so minimal cushioning.

      • A:

        None at all!

      • A:

        No smell, great mat!

      • A:

        We just purchased. Of course strong fumes when package initially opened, like almost all plastic products, but it quickly dissipated and was not noticeable at all after I put our rug over it. I'm very happy with it!

      • A:

        No smell at all and I've had this for a few months now and all is good.

      • A:

        There is no smell in this rug at all nice and pretty

      • A:

        I have had this pad in place now for three weeks...no odor when we put it down and none today.

      • A:

        Slight smell when you open the package, and after the carpet is put down on top no noticeable smell at all!

      • A:

        no smell -- works well.

    • Q:

      "I have wall to wall carpet in our dining room and have an 9x11 area rug that is always wrinkled. Will this pad help keep the area rug straight?"

      • A:

        It is not designed to do that. It will keep it from sliding.

      • A:

        This will be perfect for your dining room, it will keep your rug straight.

        Per the description of the item: Surfaces for use include carpet, tile, hardwood, laminate, vinyl and other flooring types

    • Q:

      "I am buy 2 pads today (amazing reviews!) and noticed a couple of people mentioned the pad is a bit hard to cut. What do you recommend to cut the pad? What are the best kind of scissors to use? Thank you!"

      • A:

        My husband used a utility knife to cut the pad. He put a large piece of cardboard underneath the area he was cutting in order to protect the floor. You have to be careful.

      • A:

        I just used a regular metal scissors. It wasn't that hard at all.

      • A:

        I used a regular metal scissors, with no problems.

      • A:

        Definitely not scissors unless you have fingers like the hulk. As Yolanda said maybe a utility knife. I used a carpet knife (for a clean cut) that I got from ****. I also used heavy cardboard under it but also cut in in my driveway to be on the safe side.

      • A:

        I didn't find any difficulty cutting the pad with a regular scissor at all. It just took some time since I had to cut across an 8' distance of the pad. Absolutely, love the pad. My rug feels so soft with the pad and doesn't budge at all! The only thing I didn't like much about the pad was the odd smell to the pad initially, however, the smell is now gone.

      • A:

        I bought two large pads to cut into smaller pieces for a total of six rugs. It was a LOT of cutting! For a small amount of trimming a sharp pair of scissors would have sufficed but my hand was wearing out. I ended up using a large rotary cutter with a self healing mat underneath. It was fast and easy. Can purchase on *****. Search for Fiskars Rotary cutter, look for 45 mm blade size or better yet 60 mm. Contour handle is the best.

      • A:

        Adult sized multi-purpose scissors cut the pad. Regular 'paper scissors' would be difficult as the pad is textured (felt) with a rubbery coating.

      • A:

        I used a pair of heavy duty sewing scissors. They were new, very sharp, and I didn't have to worry about accidentally slicing into the surface underneath.They worked well but I can see where someone with older hands or arthritis might find the pad hard to cut. In that case, a utility knife (as suggested below) would be the best.

      • A:

        I used a utility Knife to cut it and I had no problems,

      • A:

        I used regular household scissors. Took a little effort - but not too hard. Utility knife would probably go a little quicker.

      • A:

        I didn't cut mine but I do know several people who used a "utility knife" to cut their pads.

      • A:

        I actually used regular scissors and didn't have an issue at all. They're great rug pads!

      • A:

        We used plain scissors too and they worked just fine.

      • A:

        I used regular kitchen scissors, and had no problems at all. I cut 3 separate pads (8x10, 6x9, 5x8) approx. 1/2"- 3/4" off 2 sides of each. The pads are about 1/2" thick so you have to go slow but good scissors is all you need. The pads are fantastic, and worth the 5 min. of cutting time. I was glad they were generous with their product sizes, and not skimpy.

      • A:

        I used kitchen shears. The cut was not even (read: zigzag) and I worked up a sweat.

      "Can this be put on Marble floors under a rug?"

      • A:

        This is suitable for all floors.

      • A:

        Yes. The pad has enough texture that it won'T slide.
