DIY home improvement has been just fantastic as anyone with any skill set can go with it. Not all, but there are at least a few projects that can always be done wonderfully. So, let us help you with those niggly-little jobs:

Follow the Sequence

Before you start with the job, make sure you are following the right sequence. Make sure the walls are done; else you will end up ruining your floor.

Don’t Wash it too often

Painting can be really daunting and if you are giving it a try yourself, this one trick can be fruitful. When you paint the wall, don’t wash the rollers and brushes after every coat. Instead, wrap them in cling film to keep them moist.

Paints on the Skin

While painting, there can be the chance of a few drops of it on your skin. To get rid of it, use baby oils.

Prevent Paint Fumes

Overbearing paint fumes can be troublesome and if you want to avoid the spill, add a little bit of vanilla extract to it.

Paint Spills

Old paint spills can be difficult to rub off from any surface and if you want to save time, rub linseed oil on them.

Delicate fabrics can be difficult to cut and if you really want it to be a fast and smooth process, dip the scissors into boiling water.

Dripping Tap

Just attaching a dental floss to the dripping tap can save you a lot of hassle. Insert into the plug hole and it will directly bring the water down.

Creating Stencils

A regular broom can act as the right substitute for deck stain applicator. So, you really don’t need to buy one.

Chalk Pens

Make any smooth, low porosity surface dry erase. Clear Erase is transparent, so underlying colour and pattern shine through. Apply like paint.

Use the chalk pens to create temporary murals on the mirrors. A perfect option for adding fun in the kid’s room.

​Prevent the Paint Drip

To prevent the paint drips add glue and a paper plate in the bottom of the paint cans.

Hide the Scratch
