One of the first items I saw at the show last week was a small item. I mean it might cost $7.99. But on the frustration relieving cost…...it’s $$$$$. How many of you have ever had to take out a stripped screw? Am I hitting home with anyone?

Stripped screws are so frustrating. You can’t screw them back in and you can’t back them out. It requires an “easy out” bit, and they are not cheap. And it’s not that easy, if you don’t do it all the time. But you know what is easy? A glue. Liquid Grip by Dap. It takes a very low skill level. If you can unscrew the top of the tube, you’ve got it made. Why does Liquid Grip work? Tank Bond Liquid Grip is a clear solution with a metallic grit suspended in the solution. The metallic grit helps fill the voids between the fastener head and the tool being used to increase contact surface area and the level of friction both fastener and tool. This allows the added Liquid Grip Formula to increase grip by up to 700%.

Say you have a screw that you need to remove. If the head is really rounded out and you can see the screw, just apply a drop into the screw head and remove with a drill screw bit. If the screw is deep down into the wood or metal and you can’t easily see the head, then apply the Liquid Grip directly to the screwdriver bit.

If you are on a project and you feel the screw slipping. Stop right then and apply the Liquid Grip. It will allow you to have more control. Now don’t misunderstand. Liquid Grip doesn’t repair the damaged head of the screw. It just helps you grip the screw head and remove. If you are trying to remove a bolt, the same theory applies. The minute your wrench slips, before you do any damage, apply Liquid Grip, and tighten up or remove the bolt without doing any damage.

Liquid Grip doesn’t stick to your tools. It wipes off easily with a paper towel. It has a great shelf life and should be in your toolbox. I was so excited about this simple product, and you will find it on our website.

TIP
The Dap rep gave me a great tip for using Liquid Grip. If you still are having problems getting a grip on the fastener. Place a tiny piece of paper towel between the glue and the drill bit for a more secure grip.

Question: My neighbor had a refrigerator that lost power while they were on a three-week vacation. Unfortunately, a piece of meat went bad and they are unable to get the smell out of the refrigerator. Do you have any suggestions?
Answer: If she is lucky and the meat did not drip behind the panels of the refrigerator. Yes, she can get the odor out. It just might take a while. I’m sure she has cleaned the refrigerator, at least all that she can get to. Use Bio-Zapp to wash down the panels and any flat surface. It will probably take many applications, so don’t get discouraged. Then open up an Air Sponge on each shelf. When you open the Air Sponge, flip it over so the sponge lays on the lid, exposing 75% of the product. This will shock the air and hopefully remove the odor even faster. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you, good luck!
Question: I just had to have a plumber come to my house and clear out a line. It was expensive. So, I was wondering if there is maintenance regimen that I could do myself to avoid the cost of a plumber?
Answer: Sure, Green Gobbler is so safe and it’s easy on your pipes. It comes in a liquid or a granule. They also make little enzyme stick that you just place in the drain, and it will keep the drain smelling great along with keeping it running clear.

Question: Hi. I saw your article in the Cypress Creek Mirror. I was hoping you would have a recommendation on how fill in the hole in travertine tile.
Answer: I would fill it in with a sanded grout as close to the color of the tile.
