Get paint out of the carpet – Pour some denatured alcohol (marine stove fuel) onto a rag and scrub away the paint. Use a rag that is as close in colour to the carpet, as the alcohol can transfer some of the rag’s colour to the carpet.

Make any rug feel extra plush and luxurious – Add a layer of carpet padding underneath your rug—it’s thicker and cheaper than a typical rug pad. The next time you wash that pile of dishes in the sink, your feet will thank you.

Get the dust off fabric lampshades – carefully use lint roller to remove the dust.

Make a versatile wood filler for free – just grab a paper plate and combine Elmer’s or any other wood glue with sawdust. Like other wood fillers, you can stain or finish it. It’s sandable, paintable and long-lasting.
