“I love to do all the household chores!”, said no one ever. But no matter how much we try to avoid it, everyone has come face to face with that one day, when it became inevitable. But ever wondered why we hate household chores so much? Well, a lazy person doesn’t need too many answers as such but the biggest and the most common answer to this question almost always seems to be that it is “physically strenuous and time consuming”.
Hooray! Times have changed and the internet has become the ultimate guide to accomplish just about anything. You can make a child, raise it and give it college education, just by following the internet correctly. Good handymen jobs can’t stay too far behind.
Here’s a list of the best home maintenance tips sourced from the internet.
Broke a wall? Pull out your make up bag
If you have unwittingly made a hole in your drywall, then you don’t have to sweat it anymore. Pull out your make up bag and stuff the hole up with some of your make up sponges (Some cutting might be required to fit the hole). Now put spackle on top of it. Keep putting spackle till it looks smooth. Once dried you can paint it so no one will ever find out.
Note: in case the hole is big and the wall itself is an important partition in the house, ensure to get professional help form an Uber for on demand Handyman kind of an app. Best to leave some things to the professionals.
Fill Window Holes with Clear Nail Polish
Seriously ladies you are nailing it (pun intended). Had it not been for your lovely nail lacquers, how would we ever manage to fill our holes (not intended this time)? If you find tiny holes in the glass of your window, keep putting the paint on it till it feels smooth. This can also be used for screens and shower curtains. Please remember this is only good for very small holes.
Play ball for the grease
Don’t you hate it when people come into your pool, lathered up with lotion! It leaves greasy rainbows all over the water. There’s a quick way to fix it. Just drop a few tennis balls into the pool and let it do its work for about an hour. The fuzzy texture of the ball pulls all the oils on its surface.
Pipes blocked? ACV to the rescue
If your pipes are blocked and you are seriously considering to spend on a plumber, it might be a good idea to do it yourself first. Boil a kettle of water and keep it on standby. Pour some baking soda in your drainage hole and follow it up immediately with some Apple Cider Vinegar and boiling hot water. This should do the trick. If not, maybe pull out your smart phone and use the on demand handyman app to hire a reliable handyman to help you.
Sorry guys got nothing for you here. Ceilings are big deals. You cannot take a chance here. Do not risk your life or that of your family, by trying to do a fix for a broken ceiling by yourself. If you find it hard to find a reliable handyman to do the job, you can use an on demand handyman application to hire one. The app will show the handyman’s qualification, experience as well as user ratings, so that you know what you are paying for.
On the whole
We’ve discussed too many holes already (no pun intended), and now it’s time to get a holistic view. The main take away from this write up is that delaying isn’t going to get you anywhere. If there’s a job that needs attention around the house, you should get on with it immediately. The more you delay the worse it gets. Also, it just becomes an unnecessary thing that occupies important brain space, not to mention all the nagging from the wife. If you don’t like doing too many repairs around the house, ensure that your kids aren’t breaking things. Use the right materials the first time around so that you don’t end up paying more the second time.
