Repair a household hammer yourself and cheaply or a picture frame, etc.
- Widen the opening on the wall made of nails (on which a picture hangs on the wall) – first press in a solid and moistened lump of newspaper, and only then drive in the nail. The dried newspaper will cover the nail extremely tightly (which will have a firm support even under a greater load or a larger picture).
- Hammer repair – to better adjust the handle of the hammer in the socket, dip the “head” of the hammer and that part of the handle in a mixture of equal parts of water and glycerin. Allow the wood to soak well. After that, the tip of the handle (due to high humidity) will swell and the glycerin will maintain humidity for a longer period.
- Cracks (or holes) on dark furniture – put a mixture of felt and shavings in the holes. They will not notice the holes. Flatten and dry. Finally, coat the damaged area with paste (or parquet cleaning wax or shoe paste). Polish carefully with a soft cloth.
- Driving nails into walls – sometimes it is difficult to drive nails into a wall because the paint on the walls is damaged. Stick the tip of the nail in soap beforehand so that damage to the paint on the walls does not happen again (damage to the walls).
