Buffies are translucent, flexible silicone covers that will cover up the legs of virtually any piece of wood or metal furniture in your home or on your patio. They're suitable for tables, chairs, stools, and even the legs of some household appliances such as washing machines, dryers and refrigerators. Since they're flexible and expandable, they'll slide onto legs of various shapes and sizes, including those that have not been cut into a traditional round or square shape. You'll get eight covers in each set of Buffies, giving you enough to protect all the legs of two different four-legged pieces of furniture.
When you cover the legs of your furniture with Buffies, those legs and your floors will be protected from certain types of damage. If you slide a piece of furniture with uncovered legs across a wood or tile floor, this may make an unpleasant noise, and you'll run the risk of scuffing or scratching your flooring. However, once a chair, a couch or another piece of furniture has Buffies attached to its legs, it'll glide smoothly across virtually any hard floor without causing damage or making an irritating sound. These furniture covers, which are almost invisible once they're molded to a leg, will even enable you to push a piece of furniture smoothly across carpet.
The cost of Buffies is $10.00 plus $7.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Buffies at the discounted price of only $1.95 for a total price of $19.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buybuffies.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Buffies and has taken down the website. Buffies may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Buffies will stretch to fit virtually any furniture leg, regardless of whether it's square, round, or fancily cut. Once on, they'll tightly hug each leg, which means they'll be unlikely to fall off, although they aren't difficult to remove, if needed. They're smooth to the touch, so they won't create friction that leads to scratches and scuff marks when they come in contact with your flooring. They'll also protect the bottoms of your furniture legs from incurring damage when touched less than gently by shoes.
The silicone used to make each set of Buffies is translucent, rendering these leg covers virtually invisible to the eye. Hence, they won't interrupt or distract from your decorating scheme.
These covers will fit over wood or metal legs of any shape or size. Since most furniture legs are made of wood or metal, it's likely that you'll be able to use these on almost all the furniture legs in your home.
Each set of Buffies contains eight individual covers, so you'll be able to use one set to cover the legs of two different pieces of furniture that have four legs each. Alternatively, one set will also be enough to cover all the legs of a larger, eight-legged piece of furniture.
You'll be able to add Buffies to a piece of furniture in seconds, and you won't need any tools besides your two hands to do so. These covers are also able to be removed quickly ( and transferred to another piece of furniture, if you desire ) without the use of additional tools.
Sometimes moving furniture can be a pain, as one normally has a choice between lifting each piece, which may be heavy, or pushing pieces along in a fairly rough manner. Fortunately, when you've added Buffies to the legs of your furniture, you'll be able to avoid heavy lifting and allow each piece to glide gently across your flooring. You'll even be able to transfer furniture in a gentle manner between different types of flooring, such as tile and wood.
Buffies only protect the bottom inch or so of each leg that they cover. Some users, such as parents with kids who choose to kick the legs of chairs and stools, might find it preferable if they were to cover a larger area.
Leg protectors made of felt are fairly popular, but these often fall off of furniture legs, especially as they age. Moreover, you'll need glue to put them on if they don't have adhesive backing, and they won't slide as smoothly over carpeted floors as Buffies do. Normally, they can't be reused with the same level of effectiveness, either.
If you use these leg covers to protect your furniture and floors, you'll save the minutes or hours you'd likely otherwise spend trying to repair scratched or scuffed flooring or furniture legs.
Once the legs of your furniture are protected by these translucent covers, it's unlikely that you'll need to pick up replacement pieces frequently.
