I've used this type of rug pad for smaller rugs and thought I could save some money by using it for an 8x10 rug I purchased from Overstock. It was a big mistake. Even after enlisting help from others, there was no way I could successfully position the rug without scrunching up this flimsy pad. Then it stretched out of shape. Then I tried to cut the edges. It was still not smooth. I ended up buying another pad from Overstock so I didn't save any money at all and, in fact, spent more than I would have had I just gotten the better "felt" like pad to start with. Learned a lesson that these kinds of pads aren't good for larger rugs. Maybe I'll use it in the future by cutting it up for smaller throw rugs around the house. Or, maybe it was just a total loss.
