Quiet your wooden floors
Seasonal changes may cause wood boards to swell and shrink, resulting in small gaps. When the boards rub against one another, they squeak. To stop the noisy friction, sprinkle baby powder over the squeak and sweep it into the board seams with a dry paintbrush. If the seams are tight, use a thin plastic card. Reapply after mopping the floor. Here are more brilliant uses for baby powder.
Make your bed frame less squeaky
Noisy bed disturbing your sweet z’s? Remove the mattress and use a wrench to tighten any loose bed-frame bolts. If you still detect a squeak, line each slat of the bed frame with mismatched socks, old T-shirts, or other scrap materials before replacing the mattress. This will create a buffer between the mattress and frame and eliminate friction points. Try these tips for the best sleep ever.
