Clear Plast-O-MatÂ® Ribbed Shelf Linerâ¿¢
Good choice for shelf liner
Bought this to line the new kitchen cabinets. Excellent liner and will help to keep shelves clean. Serves as a bit of buffer between glasses and other hard surfaces such as cans placed in the pantry cabinets.

Love this product!
I bought this shelf liner for freshly painted shelves in my kitchen 2 years ago and think it's well worth the extra expense over other shelf liners. It's durable and doesn't stick to my shelves and leave a nasty residue behind like the old contact paper did. The best part is how easy it is to clean - I'm in the process of moving, and I've been wiping the shelf liner down with a wet cloth to clean it after clearing out each cupboard. When this product went on sale again recently, I stocked up on several rolls of both sizes for the shelves in my new house. Don't bother trying any other products like this - this is the one you want!

Wow, won't ever use anything else to line shelves
The house we bought was not kept up very well, and I had to scrub the shelves clean 3 times with bleach before I let any of our stuff get put away. At the time, we figured we would redo the cabinets - so I didn't want to spend a lot of money. So I bought the cheap adhesive white liner. It was a pain to use.
Fast forward a year later. All new kitchen cabinets installed. Once again, no way I would put our stuff away without a liner - only this time it was because I didn't want to ruin the beautiful wood! I couldn't bear to cover it up with opaque liner, and didn't want to use anything with a sticky back. I researched this to death, narrowing down some contact liner and the plast-o-mat/life liner. The plast-o-mat/life liner was much clearer than the contact brand. I do think the plast-o-mat and lifeliner are one and the same, since they are from the same company, they are just marketed differently.
Anyway this stuff is amazing! It was super easy to cut, no backing to peel, and gives a nice look to the shelves/drawers. The ribbing helps things from shifting in drawers. Even my husband was impressed with the quality, and how nice the cabinets look with this on it.
I am going back to get more - I think I just might redo the other cabinets and drawers in the house, which have the textured white or beige vinyl that curls up all the time. Try to get this when it is on sale - it winds up being much cheaper per square foot than you think!

This is the bomb! Highly recommended.
I bought this based on reviews and the other reviewers are spot on. This shelf liner is just amazing -- easy to use, easy to install, easy to remove for cleaning, protects anything you put on it, looks like it will last as long as your shelves do. Comes in 12" and 24" depths to accommodate popular cabinet sizes. Seems like you can put away things that have some drying to do and let them dry in place.
Bonus: No need to restrict this to solid cabinet shelves and drawers. It's great on wire pantry and closet shelves to keep spills and drips from falling through and should work quite nicely in a refrigerator or freezer.
The design is very intelligent -- ribs are about 1/4" apart, making it easy to cut to size in the direction the ribs run without drawing a guideline. (One design suggestion: add faint lines going the other way to make it easy to cut across without drawing a guideline.)
