How to Fix Broken Things Easily

It's easy to get frustrated when something breaks, but don't give up hope just yet! With a few smart ideas and the philosophy of reducing, reusing and recycling, most broken things can be fixed or even turned into something better. Bored Panda has compiled some of the best examples of these ingenious DIY projects to unleash your creativity. When it comes to ceramics, like plates and cups, you can repair them if you act quickly. The porous ceramic must be moistened on the broken edges before applying the glue.

This helps the glue adhere more strongly to the ceramic. Put the pieces together very gently and allow them to dry. If the repair is quite complicated or beyond your means, check with a local furniture repair shop to see what it would take (and how much it would cost) to fix it. For example, if you have a toilet issue, you can follow the toilet troubleshooting in this Home Repair Tutor video and fix the problem once and for all.

Don't let broken items discourage you from being creative! With a little bit of effort and imagination, you can turn any broken item into something new and useful. So don't throw things away as soon as they break - try fixing them first!.
