Relax. Here’s how to make short work of every common repair annoyance.
These are the 7 most-needed repair tips every homeowner should know.
1. Fix a Leaky Toilet
Running toilets not only rob sleep, they waste water and jack up your bill. Here’s how to change a flapper — the usual suspect:
2. Repair Drywall Holes
The hardest part of drywall repair is making the patch flush with the existing wall. A “pumpkin patch” is an easy repair that cuts down on sanding.
3. Adjust Cabinet Doors
Changes in humidity can make cabinet doors rub, refuse to close, or just look cockeyed. Adjusting them is easy and generally requires only a screwdriver.
4. Open a Stuck Window
Windows stick when paint, dust, or moisture builds. Use a utility knife (or a pizza cutter) to remove old paint. Be careful not to gouge the wood sash. If high humidity is making windows hard to move, run a humidifier that sucks moisture out of air.
5. Stop a Leaking Faucet
A dripping faucet can waste 5 gallons of water per day. If you can’t replace the faulty part immediately, tie a string around the faucet and let it fall into the drain: Dripping water will silently flow down the string.
6. Silence Door Squeaks
Take the squeak out of doors by lubricating top and bottom hinges with a little WD-40 or white lithium grease. If you don’t have any on hand, olive oil is a quick but temporary fix.
7. Turn Off the Main Water Line
Don’t wait until water gushes into your house to search for the main water line. When things are calm and dry, locate and practice turning it on and off.

In the last few years, energy-efficient LED holiday lights have largely replaced more wattage-thirsty incandescent strings, resulting in significant savings — LED lights use 50% less energy than their incandescent predecessors, and they last up to 10 times longer as well.
Now there’s a newish kid in the string-light neighborhood: LED solar Christmas lights promise grid-free festive lighting.
Powering Up Solar Christmas Lights
A string of solar Christmas lights uses a small solar panel for power; there are no extension cords that must be plugged into outlets. The panel — about the size of a hockey puck — powers rechargeable batteries that illuminate a 25- to 100-bulb string of LED lights.
Panels come with small stakes so you can put them in the ground, where they can take advantage of the sun. A fully-charged string of lights should glow for six to eight hours after the sun goes down.
Solar Lights vs. LED Plug-In Costs
Pricing for solar-powered and plug-in LED holiday lights runs neck and neck. Compare purchase prices:
