I originally bought this rubbery shelf liner to line the shelves in my kitchen cupboard. I like it because the dishes don’t move once they’re set in place. And it also cushions them.
Then I began to see all kinds of other ways I could use the shelf liner, and now I like to keep a roll handy.
It comes in several colors and it is machine washable, although I just wipe mine off.
You can find it at Target, Walmart, or the Dollar Store.
Creative Uses for Shelf Liner.
Use Under a Cutting Board.
My cutting board tends to slip on the counter when I use it, so I cut a piece of shelf liner smaller than the board. When I set the board on the shelf liner, it doesn’t move at all.
For my large cutting board I use a rectangular piece of shelf liner that is about 8 x 12 inches.
For other uses, a 5 or 6 inch square is very handy.
Grip a Jar Lid.
I cut a 5 1/2 inch square of shelf liner that works perfectly to grip a jar lid when I am opening a new jar of food.
Hold a Bowl in Place.
This same square holds a bowl firmly in place when I am grating carrots or lemon peel.
Under a Small Cutting Board.
I also use this small square under my small cutting board.
This square is also handy for getting a better grip when using a tool, such as pliers or a screw driver.
And it makes a great toolbox liner.
Get a roll of this shelf liner and cut it into 8×12 rectangles and 5 or 6 inch squares. Share them with family and friends, along with creative ideas for using them.
