I don't remember where or the name of it but several have posted about a product that is painted on the bottom of slippers to make them not slippery. Today I saw Dritz Anti-skid fabric in Joann's Fabrics (USA) so thought I would pass it along.
That looks a lot like some of the anti slip mats/rubber shelf liners I've bought for felting, Frances. I thought about using it on the bottom of slippers, but I did use it on the bottom of coasters a while ago:
It worked well, but after using it for a while and wiping the coaster, it did shrink a little, but the rubber backing didn't. I know it's less likely to happen with slippers, they won't be wiped as often, but just thought it was worth mentioning.
I used silicone sealant on a coaster/trivet recently, it's the closest I've found to dip n grip or spray on stuff like Ruth uses.

I ran across this product while looking to purchase replacement felting needles on-line and wondered if this could be used for cutting soles for slippers? Slippers are at the top of my list for the New Year!
I have sprayed Plasti Dip in the garage before in the cold weather but it is really stinky. You can get the kind to paint it on but it doesn't come out very smoothly. You do need a mask or good ventilation for spraying it on. I usually save it for outdoors.
Frances, have a look at cheap stores around about now, they are all selling cheap slippers even cheaper, there are lots of different ones, but generally faux suede or rubber types, they look like they'd be good for felt slipper soles.
