Treatment for a scratched wood floor For minor
scratches, crayons will do the trick. Pick a color that matches the
flooring, and color in the scratched area. Be sure to stay in the lines;
then buff to a shine. A matching permanent marker can camouflage
deeper, ugly scratches. Another method: Grind the meat of a walnut or
pecan into the scratch. The nut oil will provide a shine that blends
with a polyurethane or water-based surface finish. Pennywise way to unclog a drain For a balky drain,
try dropping three Alka-Seltzer tablets down the sink followed by a cup
of white vinegar. After about 15 minutes, you can clear the drain with
boiling water. Do not attempt this trick immediately after using a
commercial drain opener like Drano or Liquid-Plumr. You’ve stripped a screw Now what do you do? Using a hacksaw, cut into the top of the screw to create a new groove for the screwdriver. Clean up your walls Use toothpaste. Patch
small holes using a putty knife or butter knife to smooth non-gel
toothpaste into the hole. Sand the spot to smooth the surface. To erase
crayon marks from walls Grab toothpaste (again, non-gel) and a scrub
brush; then, just wipe until the marks are gone. For more home maintenance tips and other home ownership information
