Little tricks to the family master

  1. To paint the bottom surface of a garden bench, a window sill, steps of a ladder it is possible by means of a tampon from foam rubber. At the top of it you need to make a small cavity for the paint.

  2. Instead of a shuttlecock for fun in badminton, you can use a neck cut off from a plastic bottle. The plug should be slightly heated over the fire and give it a spherical shape. Inside the cork you need to lay a pebble or a piece of plasticine.

  3. Before you can put flowers on the balcony in the summer, place an oilcloth or polyethylene on it, and lay a layer of foam on the bottom. Along with the surface of the foam pad, drill a drainage hole in the drawer wall. Rain water accumulating in the box will evaporate slowly (it will be kept foam), and the flowers will not need daily watering.

  4. The lampshade for the outdoor light bulb can be made from an ordinary glass jar with a screw cap. To do this, unscrew the outer part of the cartridge (it is called the bushing), in the lid of the jar, cut a hole with a diameter equal to the outside diameter of the thread on the chuck, also fix the resulting ring with the bushing.

  5. From a tin cover from a glass jar, a self-tapping screw, you can make an excellent candlestick. Make a small hole in the center of the lid and screw the screw into it from the outside. Before installing the candle, heat the screw over the flame of the cigarette lighter and press the side of the candle to it. The remaining cavity is filled with paraffin from another candle. Do not wind the candle on the screw: it will inevitably burst.

  6. To small bottles, for example with glue for prefabricated models, with medicines or ink, did not turn over in any way, make a clip from a small piece of foam plastic under them.

  7. For gluing plastics (polystyrene) it is useful to use so-called. "napalm". That is, polystyrene shells of 1-time lighters are dissolved on acetone. You can use plexiglas, rear walls of televisions, etc.
    Instead of acetone gasoline, nefras, but at the same time, the dissolving time of drying at room temperature will also increase significantly.
