Solve Five Common Household Problems

More and more of Latinas are strapping on tool belts and tackling household problems ourselves. No more waiting for a man to do it for us! Why wait when we can easily learn to do it ourselves?

Here Are Easy Tips for Solving Five Common Household Problems:

Unstick Sticky Windows

Rub wax or spraying silicone into the tracks on both sides. Move the window up and down several times to work the wax or silicone lubricant into the frame.

Fix Squeaky Wood or Tile Floors

Sprinkle baby powder on the surface of the floor. Then place a chisel between the boards and gently hammer the top to pry up the tile or floorboard. Sprinkle more baby powder underneath the board to seal the excess space causing the squeaking.

Slow Or Clogged Drains

Try a de-clogging gel. Liquid-Plumr’s new Penetrex Gel is a fast-acting, powerful formula that can clear the toughest clogs in just seven minutes.

Mend  holes or tears in your window screens

Use a screwdriver to straighten the bends in the mesh and dabbing clear nail polish to seal the hole.

Fix A Wobbly Table Leg

A wobbly table leg is easy to repair. Just figure out how it’s attached to the seat. Then either screw the leg back into its socket or glue it back into place.
