Creaky Floor

If you've got: a creaky floor

Ideal solution: Graphite powder, which provides a soft, microfine layer of lubricating particles

In-a-pinch fix: Talcum powder

How it works: Sprinkled into the grooves of your floor, talc can dampen the squeak of two boards rubbing together. The loose boards still slide, just more quietly.
