I just recently renovated my kitchen to finally have the dream kitchen I have wanted since I was a little kid. Only problem is that my new tile floor has almost killed me a few times while I’m in there cooking because it’s very slippery…especially when it gets any sort of liquid on it while I am cooking. The tile is absolutely beautiful so I don’t want to have to replace it so I need to find a way to solve this problem so that the tile is safer. P.S. I’m not a big fan of rugs in the kitchen Any help?

Hey Williams588, I had that exact same problem a while back. My daughter spilled some juice on the kitchen floor so I cleaned it up with some paper towels but must have missed a small spot because about 15 minutes later she comes running through the kitchen and her feet slipped right out from under her! Thankfully she was not hurt badly, but I was quick to fix that problem so it wouldn’t happen again. A friend of mine told me about this stuff called Johnny Grip (I’ll post there link below) and said it worked wonders to fix slippery tile so I ordered some. I have since seen a tremendous difference in the amount of grip the floor has :) Check em out.

I just wanted to give you an update on my floor.
I got the Johnny Grip in the mail last week and I just applied it to my tile. That stuff is amazing, thank you so much for helping me out :)
