3 Smart Uses for Bathtub Appliques

Yes, they make the bathroom safer -- but guess what else an applique can do!

Apply to dance slippers, shoes, and pajamas
Avoid nasty falls caused by slippery plastic dance slippers — and even new shoes. Cut small pieces of bathtub appliqués and apply them to the sole of each slipper or shoe. You can also sew cut pieces of an appliqué on the soles of your children’s “feet” pajamas to prevent slips (and tears).

Stick to bottom of kids’ wading pool
A few bathtub appliqués applied to the floor of a kiddie pool will make it a lot less slippery for little feet and help prevent falls — especially when the water play turns rowdy. Also put a couple of appliqués along the edges of the pool to give kids easy places to grip onto.

Affix to sippy cups and high-chair seats
Cut pieces of a bathtub appliqué and put them on toddlers’ sippy cups to minimize spills. Also attach appliqués to high-chair seats to keep little ones from sliding down — or out.
