The mystery of the sticking rug pad and a theory

So about the mystery of what happened to make the rug pad stick to the floor.

030

It was sort of interesting.  It didn't vacuum up.  I tried a plastic scrapey thing and that didn't budge it either so I figured this would be a giant mess involving straight edge razors, toxic chemicals, a haz-mat suit and some sort of DANGER DANGER! tape from the EPA across my front door.

But I decided to try water first.

Weirdest thing.   Stuff just started to flake off and really, I have no earthly idea why.  I threw the bathroom rug  down and called it a day.

I  also have no earthly idea what would make that rug pad change form, disintegrate and become part of the wood floor but I have this theory.....

Problem with it is....Much like my theory about the doody rug....The only one who really knows what's going in is Ginger, and she's not talking.

I've had that happen before with rugs, it's usually just as the pad on the back gets old and starts to deteriorate. Sounds like Ginger is a lot like my JRT!

Careful if she knows your talking about her like that to everyone she will get even. I know from experience.

Oh. My. Gosh. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo of my pally Ginger!!!

Hey, don't be blamin' my girlie--those darn rug sticky thingys always disintegrate on their own. I've had them do it to me too and Ginger doesn't live here, so she's in the clear.

Pass her a treat, will ya?
