How To Use Cork Bump-on's and Cork Pads
Cork Bump-on's offer a firmer protection than felt pads. They also work well on items that are near water, or will be washed. For instance, they are very useful for putting on items near the kitchen. Since cork pads do not absorb water like felt pads, you can wash items with these pads on them and usually they stay in place through multiple washes.
They are very useful for many items such as flower pots where felt pads won't stand up to the abuse, and rubber pads have a tendency to fall off. Cork pads are one of the most useful protective pads to have on hand in any house or office.
You will see cork pads on most expensive items that sit on office desks for example. You will find plastic on the bottom of cheap office furniture. But plastic bottoms pick up dirt between the plastic bottom and the desktop and you can get some really nice scratches over time on your desk, or dining room table.
By placing cork pads such on the bottoms of these items you will save your desktop or tables from getting marred.
Cork pads have a long history of being used for this purpose but plastic bottoms are cheaper to manufacture and cork has been faded out on most cheaper quality items such as staplers, and other common office products.
Get Real, Get Cork! There is a truth in that saying as these cork pad's are made from real wood, a renewable item where as plastic bottom material is not. So you could say it is a Green Item if that interests you.
Cork is also the product of choice for stopping wine bottles. All good quality wines use a cork stopper. In fact many people will not buy a wine that doesn't have a cork stopper in the bottle. Anything less is just plain unacceptable to many people.
