Squeaky hardwood floors might just seem like an inevitable fact of life, something that is bound to happen as a home ages. While they can be experienced as a kind of charming aural patina at first, these noises soon move into the "really annoying" category. 

Woodbridge Environmental offers a super simple remedy to this problem that can fix the squeaks in a matter of seconds. Just spread corn starch over the seams where the boards are rubbing. The powder will then fill in the gaps in and act as a lubricant.

It's an easy-to-implement wood floor repair hack that's green, too.
