Old Wine
Corks To
Keep Your
Wooden Floors
The daily wear and tear of moving furniture can lead to scratches on your wooden floors. To avoid it, reuse old wine corks as a buffer for your furniture.
Since corks need to seal bottles to prevent leaks while still allowing the tiniest bit of oxygen to slip through, they're made to be a perfect mix of cushion and durability.
First, use your knife to slice off thin pieces of the cork, making sure to cut them straight and as evenly as possible if you'll be applying them to multiple chairs or table legs.
Flip over the piece of furniture you want to prevent from scratching the floor, then glue down the slices of cork to act as a soft buffer on the bottoms of the legs.
