Nice polished wood floor, + rug. *Treacherous*. To prevent slipping, what?

Horrendously slippery.
Wife claims that the sticky under-carpet pad she's familiar with will harm the floor (the "valuable, beautiful wood floor"), and that I'll just have to learn to be careful when entering that room, that's all.
(Guests breaking necks? Nah, no worry, ...)
So, what to do -- that won't "harm" the wood floor?
(Especially nice if it doesn't cost an arm and leg ...)
Thanks!
David

Go buy a rubber mat. It won't hurt the floor and if the wife says otherwise tell her this is a special blend of reclaimed latex.

Jute is good for wall to wall but it will slip on an area rug.
