So you know to "drip your faucets" when extended cold weather threatens to freeze your pipes.

But what if those dripping faucets are noisy and keep you from falling to sleep?  Or what if you are in a hotel room and dripping faucets are disturbing your beauty rest?

Well, until you have the time to replace the faucet, or leave the hotel room, tie a piece of dental floss around the faucet and let the string dangle into the sink. This way the water will slip down the floss instead of plunking into the sink.

Nitey nite....
