As opposed to floors owned by people convinced that always removing your shoes is a valid substitute for actually cleaning?

Another hardwood question:

Those of you who have hardwood floors, what do you use under rugs to protect the floors and keep them in place? I've heard stories about people who have used rubber mats discovering that the mats have damaged the wood. Some of the suggestions I've seen have been vinyl mats and felt pads (which seem like they wouldn't do much to prevent slipping). I'm just curious as to what you guys use.

BedBath&Beyond. You can purchase these products at many stores that install and refinish floors as well. Amazon, though not B&M, presumably also sells this online.

The Method wood cleaner + mop is really good.

I should have said this is only a method to use on newly resurfaced hardwood floors that have been covered with urethane. This would damage older wood floors sorry. You also don't want to use wood products on urethane. So no murphys oil soap.

It really depends on how the wood has been treated.
