99-Cent Store Solution: Torn Window Screen

Get rid of one of life’s greatest annoyances for less than a buck.



Among the things that make us nuts:

  • An empty carton of milk in the fridge

  • A flat tire

  • A torn window screen. That tiny hole is just the invitation bugs need to break in.




No need for a handyman or a replacement screen.

You’ll find the right bug deterrent at the 99-cent store, if it’s not already on hand in your bathroom cabinet. But going to the dollar store is fun — you never know what you’ll find. Like cheap soda. Supplies:

  • Clear nail polish, 99 cents

  • Two slightly dented cans of soda, 99 cents

  • Total: $1.98

What you do:

  • Apply the clear nail polish on both sides of the torn area. Slather it on so it builds up a nice barrier.

  • Watch it dry transparently.

  • Enjoy your soda.
