Save an old sock and copy this project

No one wants to be sitting in the comfort of their own home and feel the chill of a draft. Although such drafts can't actually make you sick, they can cause you to be pretty uncomfortable. The viruses that cause the common cold tend to linger just a little longer in colder temperatures, and being exposed to cold, dry air can actually lower immune responses needed to fight off those bugs.
Luckily, there's a solution that will keep you feeling healthy and warm. All you need is a few pairs of socks, a couple of other materials you can find at a hobby store, and some spare minutes. When you've finished this clever DIY project, put it at the bottom of the drafty door or window.
