Finding Slip NoMor in the Boston Area
« on: Jan 05, 2011, 12:36 am »
Does anyone know if you can get Slip NoMor in the greater Boston Area?  I am in a slight "emergency" situation and was hoping to put my hands on some quickly without having to wait for overnight shipment.  Or does anyone have an "over-the-counter" remedy for slick floor that is not a sugary soft-drink?

Thanks

You can try Backstage Hardware (617.330.1422) in the Seaport district.  I have also had pretty good success with using diet soda, which has a similar stickiness to regular, but doesn't have the sugar to attract ants, etc...
I've never been paid a lot, but the theatre has kept me, and for that I shall be eternally grateful. Tony Church

Just did a major Ballroom Show and had disastrous results with soda.
Dancers had boxes of rosin backstage that they used before entrances.
I also checked the floor at intermission with a little dixie cup of rosin that I spread around as needed...

You can also try a restaurant supply store.  Many restaurants have a non-slip additive that they use in both the kitchen and out in the dining area, we certainly did back when I worked at Taco Bell (oh, so many years ago now).
