Slippery feet

I have a telephone - actually a few - which have rubber feet, but the rubber has lost its grip with the result that the phones tend to slide round the desk.

 

Does anyone know an easy way of making the rubber sticky again? Someone suggested painting them with coca-cola, but I'm not so sure!

 

(I remember we used to boil drive belts, I wonder if that would do the trick?)

Re: Slippery feet

Google "non-slip roll" or similar and go for one that looks like a perforated mesh; obtainable from Wilko (there are other suppliers). It's easily cut to size and also makes a great mat to go under a baby sitting on a pub highchair to stop it sliding forward.
