Seal a hole in your gum boots – or any rubber shoe – Simply use clear silicone sealant and you’ll be dry as dust.
Loose buttons – Keep a few threads from letting go of a button, with a coat of clear nailpolish across the front of the button and over the thread.
Clean your gutters without a ladder – Attach PVC pipe to your leaf blower so you can clean out your gutter with your feet firmly planted on the ground.
If your garden hose springs a leak – find the hole, stick a toothpick into it, then snap it off.
