To give a nice finish to your joint finishing work, coat your index finger with liquid dish soap when you last apply a sealant or silicone .
Quickly sharpen scissors and give them some bite by cutting fine sandpaper or a few layers of aluminum foil. This troubleshooting will keep you satisfied until the next professional sharpening.
If your scissors have lost their flexibility, spray the joints with WD40 by opening and closing them several times. Wipe off excess lubricant with a soft cloth.
Nothing better for polishing wood with your favorite wax than a good old recycled woolen rag sweater.
It will be easy to remove stickers from a tub by warming them up with the hair dryer. A contact glue remover will remove all glue residue.
There is nothing more unpleasant than marking a wall that you have just painted or wallpapered. So put old socks on the ends of your ladder and your movements will go unnoticed.
If you have to hide a small hole in the wall after removing a nail, use toothpaste paste and not gel and polish with your finger. If the wall is colored, use a crayon whose color is close to the wall. Pass it quickly over the small hole which will fill up after a few seconds. Neither seen… nor known.
Your tools won't rust if you put a few blackboard chalks in the trunk where you store them. They will absorb excess moisture.
