Clever Uses of the Scraps of Carpet


 
Home Improvement,Environment,Business
Muffle clunky appliance noise Does your washer or dryer shake, rattle, and roll when you’re doing a load? Put a piece of scrap carpet underneath it, and that may be all you need to calm things down.

Catch a falling sock You may never be able to stop socks and other articles of clothing from falling to the floor en route from washer to dryer. But you can make retrieval a lot easier by placing a narrow piece of carpet on the floor between the two appliances. When something falls, just pull out the strip and the article comes with it.

Keep Fido’s home dry Don’t let the raindrops keep falling on your dog’s head. Weatherproof the doghouse: Make a rain flap by nailing a carpet remnant over the entrance. In colder areas, you can also use small pieces of carpet to line interior walls and the floor to add insulation. Make a scratching post If your cat is clawing up the living room sofa, this might do the trick. Make a scratching post by stapling carpet scraps to a post or board and place it near kitty’s favorite target. If you want it to be freestanding, nail a board to the bottom of the post to serve as a base.

Keep garden paths weed-free Place a series of carpet scraps upside down and cover them with bark mulch or straw for a weed-free garden path. Use smaller scraps as mulch around your vegetable garden.

Keep floors dry Don’t let the floor get soaked when you water your indoor plants. Place 12-inch (30-centimeter) round carpet scraps under house-plants to absorb any overwatering excess.

Prevent scratched floors Stop screeching chairs from scratching or making black marks on wood or vinyl floors. Glue small circles of carpet remnants to the bottom of chair and table legs.

Make a buffer Use epoxy resin to glue an old piece of carpet to a block of wood to make a buffer. Make several and use one to buff shoes, another to wipe blackboards, and one to clean window screens.

Cushion kitchen shelves Reduce the noisy clattering when putting away pots and pans: Cushion kitchen shelves and cabinets with pieces of carpet.

Protect workshop tools Does your workshop have a floor made of concrete or another hard material? If so, put down a few carpet remnants in the area closest to your workbench. Now when tools or containers accidentally fall to the floor, they will be far less likely to break.

arpet tiles and squares have become indispensable tools for creative budget decorators. These easily manipulated pieces, ranging from one to several square feet in area, can be affixed to various surfaces using glue, special tape, or other adhesives. Among their advantages are low cost, color and texture variety, and availability. Just because they're made of carpet material doesn't mean they always belong on the floor! Consider these creative uses for carpet tiles and squares.
