  • I just painted a sign for use outdoors and now I need to coat it so it's not ruined when it rains. What should I use and how?

    Best answer: It depends on what paint you used, if it’s acrylic you can use pretty much whatever varnish you think would work. When I use wood I use laqcuer, which does take a while to dry. If I hang it somewhere like on my porch where rain doesn’t hit it as much I usually just use something like clear spray paint.

    A couple of years ago I dropped my ring into the shower drain. This drain had no grate and it was just a giant hole.

    A couple of years ago I dropped my ring into the shower drain. This drain had no grate and it was just a giant hole. It's been a couple of years now and I wonder if I am able to to hire a plumber to check if I have a chance that my ring could still be down in the S-pipe. I ask because my ring was made of gold and over 100 diamonds so I believe it might be heavy enough to withstand the water. However, I have no idea how much plumbing costs nor the estimates.I also wonder how am I able to find out if my house even has a p-trap or s pipe. It's a fairly old house. Thanks for all the input.

Or if i'm supposed to have a 4-wire wiring set up to get the "neutral" wire... Ordinarily, i'd assume if it's got 3 wires on it, it'll work in my house, but it "requiring neutral wire" is throwing me. Any suggestions?

  • How to hang a poster on a glossy concrete wall?

    Best answer: Command strips. Blu tak is not very good because it can stain white walls. Duct tape will harden over time and be impossible to get off.
