Silicon Slipper Bottoms Tutorial


Want slipper bottoms that don’t wear out quickly? Perhaps something that is non-slip?  It’s as easy as adding silicon to the bottom.  It’s stinky, and sticky, but it really works!

You need a caulking gun, and some clear silicon.  Squirt the silicon all over the bottom of the slipper, and then rub and smooth it into the yarn with your fingers.  You can dip your fingers in some water to help smooth it down. It won’t stop it from sticking to you, but you’ll have smooth skin afterwards. 😉  Also, the smell may give you a headache. oof!

It probably won’t end up super pretty, but it will be on the bottom of the slipper, so it doesn’t have to be beautiful. Just not lumpy.

I’ve added the option to my Mukluk Boots listing, and took out the variation pricing for size. Now all sizes are $60, and with the silicon bottoms $70.
