Life Hacks 2 – Top 10 Handyman Tips Edition

Alright so today on Repairs101 I�ve got
even more life hacks, shortcuts and trade secrets for you – so stick around. Alright, speaking of cars, backing into parking
stalls is infinitely safer than backing into a busy parking lot, alleyway or roadway. Being backed in also ensures access to your
engine compartment � in most cars. Some cars store their batteries and even their
engines in the rear of the car so be familiar with your vehicle and park it accordingly. If you have to boost your battery and your
car has a negative ground � which almost all of them do � connect the black / negative
/ ground cable last and disconnect it first. If you heard differently you heard wrong.

When you�re assembling plumbing, like under
a sink, it�s best to start with everything loose and then to tighten it all gradually
and evenly so it draws itself together into position and that way nothing needs to be
forced. I use mineral oil to protect everything from
furniture to kitchen tools � it�s cheap, non-toxic, it doesn�t go rancid like food
oils and it�s available at almost any pharmacy. You know I used to find my sunshade was always
slipping off and falling on the front seat, until I started using these snack clips. Use a nail or cold chisel to pierce a small
hole in the trough of your paint can to drain excess paint back into the can.

Instead of throwing out a broken axe or hatchet
head, cut back the toe to create a Tomahawk style head. Don�t let this happen to you on Prom Night! Grab a floor-mat out of the car and keep your
clothes clean and dry. Keep your files from clogging by rubbing ordinary
chalk onto them, and clean them using a file card. Whether you�re in the kitchen or in the
engine room you�re going to thank me for this one when you need a funnel. Just cut the corner out of a thick plastic
bag and then cut the tip off of that. You can make scrapers that remove all kinds
of stickers and decals off of glass paint or metal without scratching it. All you need is a heavy piece of plastic,
lexan or plexiglass and run it over your belt sander to give it a nice, fine edge. If you�re in a real pinch and need some
bright torch light � look no further than your kids� toy box.
