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
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.
