I was telling my hubby how there were other people complaining of this awful noise and he was laughing at their suggestions as he had the "perfect" solution. I was annoyed with him telling him how he can't know the pain we go through. And he said "watch, I will fix it for you right now!". Great, now he is on a mission to show us just how silly we are. Well, we didn't have the supplies on hand that he swore would be the end-all-be-all cure to this annoyance. The next time I was at the store I picked them up for him to prove his theory. I knew that his "logics" were perfectly sound, but how could it be this easy?
Here is all you need:
These are those little felt pads you can put on the bottom of furniture feet to keep them from scratching up hardwood floors. This package of 12 cost me $2.99 at the grocery store. We put 2 on the back corners of each of the 4 problem drawers. Like this:
Be sure to only put them on the back corners of the drawer. If you put them on the front, the drawer doesn't close properly. I am amazed that the solution was so simple! It is pure silence now. I am in heaven. Now I can open and close these drawers without anyone knowing and without sending the cats to the basement! You know I have to concede to my hubby's genius now...that is the painful part. But, I have to give credit where credit is due.
Thanks for visiting!
