Home Tip!

    Have you painted recently? Last time I did I learned a lesson about reattaching the switch plates to the walls. I realized that several of the screw holes had been stripped. Normally, this would be a minor annoyance, but this time, I was actually kind of excited because I recently heard about a quick and easy way to fix this little problem. All you need is white glue (Elmer’s is perfect, but others will work just as well) and a cotton ball. Soak the cotton in the glue, stuff it in the stripped hole, and let it dry. After a day or so, just use a screwdriver to put a new screw into the spot. It’s so easy! Next time you’re faced with a stripped socket, try it and see. Next time you’re faced with a real estate question or problem, call me! I look forward to helping you.
