Want to move some heavy furniture around and can't find/don't have any sliders? Just take a wash cloth, fold it in quarter sections and slip it under each corner or leg and it will help the unit slide easily...this trick wont work on carpets or rugs, unless you put some thin shiny or smooth cardboard under the clothe to help it "glide" over the carpet or rug. Also good to use when you want to move things around without scratching or otherwise marring a wood floor.
