  • I just painted a sign for use outdoors and now I need to coat it so it's not ruined when it rains. What should I use and how?

    Best answer: It depends on what paint you used, if it’s acrylic you can use pretty much whatever varnish you think would work. When I use wood I use laqcuer, which does take a while to dry. If I hang it somewhere like on my porch where rain doesn’t hit it as much I usually just use something like clear spray paint.

    A couple of years ago I dropped my ring into the shower drain. This drain had no grate and it was just a giant hole. It's been a couple of years now and I wonder if I am able to to hire a plumber to check if I have a chance that my ring could still be down in the S-pipe. I ask because my ring was made of gold and over 100 diamonds so I believe it might be heavy enough to withstand the water. However, I have no idea how much plumbing costs nor the estimates.I also wonder how am I able to find out if my house even has a p-trap or s pipe. It's a fairly old house. Thanks for all the input.

  • About using two different types of drain cleaning fluids?

    I used one brand, and it didn't work. So I bought some heavier duty stuff, but I hear that you should NOT mix two different types, as that can be toxic to inhale. How long should I wait? Will running water through be good enough?

    I bought a used end table that is has 2 L-shaped metal legs, and the top is a piece of glass that sits on the legs. There are supposed to be 6 little button-size rubber pieces on the frame so that the glass does not rest on the metal directly. Hard to describe but you've probably seen it before. Since my table was used when I bought it, most of them were missing, so I had to take them all off. Can the glass sit right on the metal frame? Or can I buy generic replacements somewhere?

  • Diy cricket killer?

    Best answer: Same as for roaches. Buy some Boric Acid powder at your local super market in the insecticide aisle. sorinkle in the corners, along the baseboards, under appliances. Redo it a couple or three times a year and you'll be roach, ant and cricket free.
