Easy Fixes for Everyday Items

From broken jeans to scratched furniture, there are plenty of everyday items that can be repaired without too much hassle. With a little bit of glue, duct tape, or a few other supplies, you can save yourself the cost of buying a replacement and keep your items out of the landfill for longer. For instance, you can easily repair broken jeans without a sewing machine. All you need is some fabric glue and a few minutes of your time.

The same goes for zippers that have stopped working - just reboot them and they'll be good as new. Wooden furniture can also be easily fixed. Scratches and dents can be made to disappear with a bit of sandpaper and wood putty. The same goes for photo frames, plates, knickknacks, watches, organizers and toiletries.

Things in the house break from time to time, but with a little bit of effort and some basic supplies, you can repair them quickly and easily. Not only will you save money, but you'll also be doing your part to reduce waste.
