Even if your rug is safe to use baking soda on it will be extremely difficult to get all of the baking soda picked back up and it may damage the underlay and the floor beneath.

Standard pads do not stop rugs from slipping and tripping. You need a specific kind of pad that has non-skid elements built in.

We recommend this pad for hallway runners and in Dining rooms as the low profile is an advantage in those instances. All other areas we recommend our Persian Dream pad which has both non-skid back but a thickness of a felt like material that bring a level of comfort as well.
