7 handy uses for RV shelf liner you probably haven’t thought of

By Nanci Dixon
Most RVers are familiar with the cushioned shelf liners that protect our dishware when we travel and bump down the road (this stuff). Beyond lining shelves to cushion and grip objects, the leftover pieces can be used for a lot of things around the RV.

Cutting board dangerously slipping? Put a small piece of shelf liner underneath the board. You can chop, dice and slice in peace! The great thing about using the liner in the kitchen is that it is hand and machine washable. 

It can also cushion lids when traveling. Particularly great for the glass lid on an Instant Pot.

While it works great on cabinet shelves, it also works well on raised metal shelves to prevent items shifting.

Add some under the small bins in the bathroom medicine cabinet to keep them from sliding around.

Jars hard to open? Cut a circle from the leftover liner and get a good grip on lids. The small piece takes up virtually no storage room. No more asking for help from your favorite strong arm!

Keep things from sliding on the dash.

Use it as a coaster or protect a surface from scratching. And don’t forget to take time to smell the roses.

Fold down cover on the stove, add shelf liner, and put potted plants on it when traveling.

It makes a great and cheap sink liner too. It will protect your sink from stains and dings. When it gets dirty just toss it and cut a new piece.

I first saw it sold as “Scoot Guard”. We keep an all purpose napkin, pen, doodad holder on the dinette table while traveling. The scoot guard keeps it right where I put it. We only take it off the table when someone is going to sleep on the dinette bed. Also for the stuff behind the kitchen sink & stove. Keeps all that stuff handy and in its place as we travel.

Between dishes in the cabinet. Under everything in the pantry, On the shelf to hold our iPads in place during travel. Under our phones at our seats, under whatever we have in the dash tray. Under the bathroom trash cans to prevent them from sliding around. Under my veggie/fruit basket for the same reason. Gonna have to try it in the fridge – hadn’t thought of that one.

The uses for this stuff are almost endless. We keep a roll of it with us all the time.
