We will close another chapter today in the series of unexpected uses for everyday items in our homes, products we normally associate with a single use. Today we will see what to do with nail polish, discovering new roles for what we thought serves only beauty purposes. These are small tips that will definitely make the difference when in trouble.
If a tiny screw of your eyeglasses refuses to stay firm, then use nail polish to keep it in place. If your specs are a bit wobbly, tighten the screws and top them with a dollop of polish. Do the same to secure buttons. Apply a thin layer of polish to the center of a button to keep the thread from coming loose.
If your guests are going to peek into your medicine cabinet, you don’t want them to see rust rings on your shelves. Brush nail lacquer around the bottom of shaving cream cans and other metal containers to avoid those unsightly stains. If you’re installing a new toilet seat, keep those screws from quickly rusting. Paint them with a coat or two of clear nail lacquer; it will also help prevent seat wobble by keeping the screws in place.
When sending a letter or a parcel and you want to make sure rain will not smear the address written on them, a little clear polish brushed over the address information will make sure your package goes to the right place.
Use nail polish to extend the life of jewelry. Paint a thin coat onto a costume bauble to prevent it from losing its luster. Do the same to protect your belt buckle’s shine – Cover new or just-shined belt buckles with a coat of clear polish. You’ll prevent oxidation and guarantee a gleaming first impression.
If your car suffers small dings and chips, you can keep them from rusting or enlarging by dabbing clear nail polish onto the damaged areas. At the same time, if you’ve developed a small crack in your windshield, stop it cold with some clear polish. Working in the shade, brush the crack on both sides of the glass with polish to fill it well. Move the car into the sun so the windshield can dry. You will eventually need to repair your windshield, but this will give you time to shop around for the best estimate.
