Vista Stair Treads (set of 4)
Do not stay put
Unlike most of the other reviewers, I find the stair treads move a lot. I am constantly straightening them. They do the job as far as preventing my dogs (and me) from slipping on the hardwood stairs, but I will be installing a runner on my stairs as these move way too much and do get matted rather quickly. I am glad to have them in the meantime--I have yet to see any similar product that is half as attractive.

Makes stairs quieter and safer
I bought these for our oak staircase to make them safer for family members. They wash beautifully and can be dried in the dryer, although some of the backing falls off. They do better on the line. If they start slipping on the stairs, that's my cue that they need to be washed and the stairs dusted.

Shocked by the excellent reviews
I ordered 3 sets of the stair treads based on the reviews. Out of the box, I liked them. Nice color (I ordered denim) and nice pattern. I put them on my oak staircase 1 week ago and they do not stay in place. Since they have a grid type pattern, after only 1 week they are matted down. You almost cant even see the grid type pattern on them anymore. I am so disappointed because they look like I have owned them for years. I cant imagine how they would look after being washed. That was the reason I purchased these in the first place, because they didn't need to be tacked down on my freshly redone staircase and the fact they were washable seeing I have 2 dogs. Too bulky to send back, so I am stuck with them until I can purchase something better. Just so disappointed that I am out the expense for a product that is NOT nonslip on MY staircase

Save your hardwood AND your dogs!
I bought 3 sets for my wood stairs 7+ years ago. My older dogs were not able to go upstairs without sliding and falling. These solved that problem and I ended up buying another color so I'd have a fall/winter look and a lighter spring/summer look. Just last year, I gave one full set to my sister for her toy poodle who broke her leg after slipping on my sister's wood stairs. She was amazed at how great they looked after years of use.
I vacuum with the brush attachment because any other attachment will cause the treads to move around on the stairs. After a quick run of the vacuum, these look brand new again. When I wash them, I hang them outside or in another room to air dry.
It is time for me to buy a new set because the backing on the original set is crumbling off and they are moving on my stairs. I think they have held up extraordinarily well and have no problem buying them again.

The BEST PRODUCT EVER from a PICKY Consumer
I have spent hundreds of dollars replacing cheap treads for years until I bought a complete set of these treads. They are durable, machine washable, and lasts forever. I've had my set for almost two years, and I'm purchasing another set in a different color plus some add ons.

I bought these two years ago because my
dog was afraid of my new oak steps.
Durable, washable and non slip.
I am ordering another set in a different color
so that he is safe while I am laundering these.

I've had these for the past 4 months and i absolutely love them. They stay in place, are easy to wash and look great. I have't had one issue yet. I am planning on buying them in more colors.

They slip too often
I have had these on my hardwood stairs for a few weeks now and so far I am having a daily battle with keeping the treads in place. I'm thinking of tacking them down with either Velcro or staples. They are comfy on bare feet, but so far not worth the hassle.
