    My mom had this purse that was very white. She got ink on it and without discussing what to do with it with one of her handy son's or a professional she tried about everything to remove it. The ink smeared into about the size of a quarter and the texture became smooth. She ended up throwing it...

    Hello, Let me start off by saying - I am a first time home owner who is trying to figure things out as I go... At first I thought repairing these walls in my closets would be a fairly "easy" task... But now I'm second guessing myself. Coming here to get some tips. I'd love to do this repair...
  4. Building & Construction
    Our home was built in 2013. Although we chose everything from the floorplan to the doorknobs, we knew very little about construction and it was a steep learning curve. Five years in, I'm left wondering if every little kink is either part of the normal aging of a house (with 2 toddlers living in...

    Hello, I have a Samsung Electric Range (FE-R400SW), about 5 years old. It is in a unoccupied suite and has barely ever been used. The LED control panel is faint/dim and not displaying properly. Also, when I open the oven door, the oven light flashes on and off quickly 5-10 times accompanied by...
  6. Plumbing
    Not knowing much about plumbing and just assuming if you can buy it at home depot it must be safe I have found myself recently starting to worry about some of the applications I have used various silicone caulking for. There is so much conflicting information on the internet, and what I am...

    Hi, hows it going? I have a quick question, and I just need some friendly advice. I'm rather knowledgeable with tools, but sometimes I get in over my head. They say you have to get in over your head to learn how to swim right? Anyway my question refers to a roof repair I'm trying to make on...

    Hey there! I'm new here, thanks for welcoming me. I recently had an accident and snapped one of the blinds in my apartment. The material is some sort of composite, it's like wood but I think it's plastic. It's rough inside. See photos linked below in my comment immediately below. I'm...

    I am replacing the deck boards and railings on a older deck. On the first half I had no problems, but when I pulled off the old deck boards on the second half I noticed the joists looked a little worse for wear. They seem pretty dry and the area gets a lot of sun, but there is a lot of splitting...

    Just closed on my fixer in November. I decided to do a makeover on the fireplace before installing the new flooring for the basement. There were about 16 brick that had busted out of the mortar so I spent yesterday doing a DIY masonry job. I plan to tile over everything so I just wanted stuff...

    Hi everyone. Newbie here! Forgive me if this first post is long but I rather be thorough than to write a one liner no one will understand. I purchased a house two years ago, it's a bungalow constructed in 1976. I decided it was time to remove all the walls and ceilings in garage and basement...

    Just bought an old house with an old garage. The garage door actually works fine, but the outside looks bad, with the bottom panel broken/rotted away, and I'd like to repair it. It's a 7'h x 17'w wood door. But interestingly, the exterior seems to be some sort of painted foam board, with wood...
