Welcome my smart readers!! I hope you will be alright. As you know well every time I come with new DIY ideas, being a DIY fan, you love my Projects which I share with you. But today I am going to discuss something different, it is not possible to live a life without making a mistake. But don’t you worry about it we learn from our mistakes, so here I bring some useful advises for you how to avoid such mistakes which you are doing wrong in your DIY projects. Let start with me.
1. Changing a Light Bulb: Not Using Grease:
Being myself, I’m thinking of the infinite times I’ve unscrewed a lightweight bulb solely to possess the bulb twist off in my hand whereas its base stays put. Which make me dissatisfied. That’s particularly likely if the bulb has been overtightened.
The solution is to use a bit dab of bulb grease on the threads when you’re screwing in a new one. This can facilitate the next person to take away that bulb year down the road, that is particularly vital with today’s long-lived LED bulbs.
2. Plumbing: Over-tightening That Fitting:
For plumbing fittings or pipe assemblies, cosy the components by hand so use a wrench to end. The extra quantity of alteration with a wrench is understood as turns-past-finger-tight). The amount of TPFT will vary from a common fraction of a flip for a little brass flare fitting to a one-quarter turn for the nut on a versatile supply riser tube to a few full turns for a large-diameter steel pipe fitting.
When putting in a plumbing fitting like a faucet, spray head, or flex tube, scan the directions that include the half or check the fine print on the product tag; the TPFT info is easy to overlook.
3. Painting: Primer hype:
The paint industry didn’t do DIYers any favors once it began promoting paints known as “paint and primer in one. Use primer once you’re applying paint over a contemporary, uncoated surface or a painted surface that has been declined because of weather, period or wear. If you are doubtful, then apply primer. The worst that may happen is that you’ll build the thickness of the film (always a decent thing) and improve the design of the highest coat (an even higher thing).
At the end try to match the paint and a suitable primer. They ought to be from the identical manufacturer and of compatible chemistry.
4. Using Bleach as a Cleaning Agent:
Many homeowners view bleach as a form of serious duty, general cleansing resolution. Since tiles and grout are naturally onerous to wash, it’s common for householders to reach for a bottle of bleach to induce the task done.
Unfortunately, using bleach solely causes a lot of damage to your tiles and grout.
Reactive and deadly in nature, bleach can destroy the protecting coating on your tiles and may leave your grout lines discolored. It’s an enormous no-no for tile and grout cleanup.
