dust from wooden kitchen drawers
We have old wooden kitchen cabinets--I don't know if they are original to the 1936 house, but they're not from any recent decade. The drawers open on wooden runners, and the wood-on-wood friction create a lot of dust, and some paint chips from the painted edges of the drawers, that ends up in the pots and pans below them. There's so much dust that I basically re-wash every pot before I use it. Fortunately the lead paint test came up negative. We can't afford to renovate now, but I'd like to do something to help with the dust issue.
One idea I had was to somehow put a "ceiling" on the inside of the lower cabinet below the drawers, so any dust would not be able to fall down. I was thinking some kind of thin flexible plastic that I could nail or staple to the bottom of the drawer runners.
Do you think that would work? Does anyone have a better suggestion? Thanks.
