Is your door smelly? Do you look at your door and say “why is that door so sweaty?” Well, if you do then you need to run out and buy a fan because this blog post is not for you! However, if you already live in an extremely windy place (in which case you do not need a fan) and happen to have had the wooden frame for your screen door crack, then this blog post might come in handy. As you might of guessed we recently experienced a minor home repair problem. Not exactly knowing how to fix this problem I went to our our local Ace hardware store.
The first thing I learned at Ace is I am really ignorant when it comes to home repair. Basically, when it comes to home repair I just look for whatever is cheap and easy. Looking at the wall repair aisle I soon learned this was not going to be cheap and easy, but then I spotted this:
My first reaction was what in the heck was deodorant doing in the wall repair aisle. I mean, I know most construction workers I know have a need for deodorant, but it seemed rather presumptuous on the hardware store’s part to put it right next to the can of spackle. Assuming this might be some sort of foreign joke I picked it up
Nope, made in the USA. I would like to say I bought this product because I was a good American, but the truth is I bought it because it was A) the cheapest product there ($5) and B) it was the only one I could instinctively understand how to use.
You might think that this was too good to be true, but it actually worked! All I had to do was turn the dial, rub it in the crack, and then wait five minutes for it to harden up. I don’t know who invented this stuff but they deserve a pat on the back. If I thought I could get away with it I would drywall my whole house with this stuff. Easy on and now I never have to worry about that not so sure feeling with my front door. What will they come up with next!?!
(As a disclaimer I was not paid nor endorsed by Erase A Hole. Although if they feel like sending me a few free cases of their product, I’d be willing to try that home drywalling experiment.)
