I just read Jackie H's post for using washcloths to make moving heavy furniture easier. I think this is a great idea, and I have plenty of microfiber washcloths I got from the Dollar Tree @ 3 for a dollar.
But what about heavy appliances that aren't built in, such as a stove or refrigerator? Here is really a case of two heads being better than one. I have new vinyl and carpet throughout the house. I sure wouldn't want to dig a hole in the vinyl while pulling out the stove to clean behind it.
For years, I have been using spray silicone to make sliding appliances easier. When cleaning behind the fridge, for example, I spray a thin film of silicone on the floor where the fridge sits, being careful not to get any on the surrounding floor. This makes sliding the fridge back in and then out the next time I clean so much easier.
I still worry though that those small metal feet on the fridge will mar the vinyl due to the sheer weight of the appliance. So, with Judy's help, I've come up with a plan that I think will work great. I shall give it a try.
The next time I pull out the stove, and before I slide it back in place. I'm going to put a folded wash cloth under each foot (you ladies might need some help with this). Then I'll spray the area where it sits with silicone.
Judy's way works. My way works. Both ways together and it should be a breeze. Kinda silly, I know, but I almost wish it was dirty behind my stove. I'm just that anxious to give this a try.
The cloths wont be seen and they'll always be there ahead of time. Yes!
