5 DIY Household Repairs

Patch a Holey Screen

Are winged pests and no-see-ums finding their way through the small holes in your window screens? You can fix small holes in your screens instead of spending hundreds on replacing them. And it's easy: just dab a small spot of super glue in the hole to seal it right up.

Avoid dripping glue from drying by quickly wiping a damp cloth underneath the spot you're patching. This will also help your handiwork look as seamless as possible. If you're bothered by the clear spot in your screen, grab a thin permanent marker and lightly draw the cross-stitch pattern on the glue spot.
