Foam Meat Trays For Stopping Drafts

Use those foam trays from meat packaging to make draft stoppers for behind your outlets. It is quite simple to do. Remove one outlet cover and trace around the outlet cover. Using a sharp blade cut out the pattern. You should be able to get two or three from each tray. Don't forget your outside outlets too. Put this behind the outlet plate and reattach to the outlet. Be sure to dry fit before you install as you want it to fit snugly but not so snug you can not put outlet cover back on. I know that the premade ones are very inexpensive but you already paid for that tray when you bought your meat why waste that money?

What a wonderful tip. I have bought the outlet insulators in the past, but not anymore. Thanks for the great info! Pam ;-)

Great idea! But my only thing is, with electricity=flammability and I would just buy them because they say they are flame retardant on packaging versus foam trays. Cheap in the stores and when it comes to safety, I wouldn't mess with it.
