MORE HOMEOWNERS TIPS FOR A HAPPIER 2013

Tips:
#2-1 DRY OUT TOILET BOWL AND TANK:
Before I have to do any work on a toilet, I use a wet vac to suck out all of the water from the toilet bowl and tank. No more messes.

#2-2 ON RE-PLANTING GRASS SEED:
Put a window screen over a spot in your lawn that you’re reseeding and you won’t have to worry about birds eating the seeds.

#2-3 FIX A DRAIN CLOG:
The plumber couldn’t budge the clog in our upstairs bathtub drain, so he said we’d have to tear out the ceiling below in order to get at the pipe. But a contractor we know had another idea that made a lot more sense. He stuck the nozzle of a wet-dry vac into a roll of electrical tape to get a tight seal against the tub’s drain, and covered the tub’s overflow hole with a flexible rubber pad. Then he turned on the vacuum and, voilà: the clog was sucked out of the pipe, saving our ceiling—and our bank account.

#2-4 NO MORE STUCK OUTDOOR LIGHT BULBS:
Screw-in bulbs in outdoor fixtures can corrode and become stuck in their sockets over time and will often break when you try to twist them out. Rub Vaseline on the bulbs’ threads before screwing them in and you’ll never have a problem replacing the bulb when the time comes. Continue reading
