Alternative Use For Felt Pads Fixes Shaky Plates

Casa Quickie: Got a Rattle?

Got a shake or rattle in the house that needs some fixin'? Put a stop to it with a simple solution — felt pads ($3.89). The fuzzy little guys most often find their way under furniture legs to keep hardwood floors from scratching, but they are quite useful in other ways, too.

Charming as they may be, hanging plates can often cause a rattle that will drive diners crazy when they get up to refill their glasses. To bring some peace and quiet back to the table, just stick two small felt pads or one large one to the back of the springs and it will create a sound barrier between the wall and the plate holder. And it may keep your plates a bit safer on the breaking front, too.

I also put them on cabinet doors and drawers, so they shut more quietly.

Thanks. Great idea!!! I can really use this to eliminate a rattle in our dining room before we have guests over for Easter dinner!

we totally did this at our house! we bought a big mirror and have it leaning on our dresser, but it's very tall and rectangular and whenever you walk by it it rattled, so we took the longer felt pads (like the ones shaped like a finger) and put one on each top corner of the mirror so now it rattles still but it doesn't make a wood on wood noise, and bang hard into the wall - it muffles and softens it
