- I have a kitchen mat to be used in the kitchen not jammed under my door.
- When we left our apartment, we had no way of jamming it back under the door and so our "bought" air would escape.
- Every time we needed to open the door (think: check the mail, do laundry, take out the garbage etc), we'd have to move the silly mat. This was especially a pain if you had your hands full. The matt stuck to the carpet just enough to make it too difficult to just kick out of the way.
I surged a tube of semi-slippery fabric. The idea being that it could glide along the top of the carpet without too much trouble.
(you can see how much of a crack there is between the floor and the door)
I sewed three ribbon tabs spread across the length of the tube then pulled them under the door and stapled them in place.
(my, what an ugly door!)
This keeps the draft stopper attached to the door. It just hangs around and does it's job whenever the door is closed.
So far, so good. I never have to touch it, it functions well and hey, it's one more project out of my brain and off my sewing desk. Onward!
