The Easy Way to Silence a Loud Blender

Because it's waking the neighbors

You are all about making some summer-ready blender lemonade and chilling on the porch. But every time you turn on your fancy Vitamix, it sounds like a jackhammer burrowing a hole through your kitchen. Here’s a nifty way to make the whole thing much, much quieter.

Step 1: Take a tea towel and fold it on your countertop.

Step 2: Place your blender on top of the towel.

Step 3: Blend. Behold as the towel absorbs most of the noise, leaving you with nothing but a gentle, quiet whir.

Step 4: Head to the porch. Drink your lemonade. Ruminate on the simple pleasures of a (quiet) life well-lived.
