Save $$$ On Home Repairs

Here are three simple home repairs almost anyone can do:

Caulking. Save energy costs by using caulk to seal air and waterleaks. Use 100% silicone caulk (available at a hardware store)because it’s waterproof and shrink-resistant.  Remove old caulk with a razor blade, outlien the area with masking tape, and use a caulk gun to apply new caulk.  Smooth it with your finger and remove the tape.

Cleaning grout. If you’re tired of scrubbing, buy a grout color restorer at Home Depot or Lowes. Stone Care International’s Grout Ink, for example, comes in white, earth tone, or gray for about $8 a tube.  Clean the surface, apply a coat and let dry.  Do a second coat.

Fixing squeaky doors. Shut the door and pull out the center pin from one hinge. Clean the pin with a scrubbing pad and coat it with petroleum jelly. Put the pin back in and open and close the door a few times. Repeat with other hinges if necessary
