I got the Contact brand Extra Large undersink plastic protector & I can't figure out which side is supposed to be up! One side is super smooth & the opposite side has pretty flat but slightly raised ridge design.

Which side should be faced toward the floor?

1 Answer 1


The "woven" pattern faces up, the smooth side faces down (toward the floor). The smooth side will grip nicely against smooth clean cabinet floor surface, resisting slipping/movement.

  • It won't flatten & I don't have a hair dryer. Any way to flatten it?
