Silent Feet Anti-Walk Anti-Vibration Pads for Washing Machines & Dryers
Count these as one of bookofjoe's favorite things.
How many decades have I been trying to ignore loud, annoying vibrations from the laundry room as the machines do what they do?
Yes, they seem awfully pricey for simple pads but man what a difference they make.
I bought two sets of four — for my old (early 90s) Maytag washer and dryer — and it's like going from a Yugo to a Bentley: that much of a difference in terms of noise.
Perfect gift for the person who has everything but peace and quiet in the laundry room.
Four for $39.95.
Full disclosure: Gray Cat (top) is less than thrilled with the end of her massage session vibration extravanzas atop the dryer.
Ah, well, at least it's still toasty.
Fair warning: Installing these by yourself in a cramped laundry room is a prescription for misery: trust me on this.
By the time I'd finally stopped trying to place the machines precisely where I wanted them — having failed to do just that but so exhausted I just didn't care anymore — I was filthy, angry, frustrated, saying bad words, sweaty, and really, really tired, besides which two of my fingers hurt a lot as a result of being crushed under one of the feet of the washing machine while I attempted to move it around just so.

Yes, very hard to do but you did it! Now I need to get you to start painting some interior walls. Color is what you need Joe.

@Avogadro_constant Oopsie! On first read of your comment I thought you were telling Joe to fart.

Pass gas, run, and post to your blog, Joe. Leave these jobs to those of us who are knuckle-draggers.
