DIY Drilling Tip!

DIY Drilling Tip!

You know the drill (pun intended)...you simply drill a hole in the wall only to have the dust fall all over to clean up or vacuum later. Kind of a pain. Well, we have the perfect DIY tip for you to eliminate that process. When drilling in drywall, stick a folded post-it underneath the drill to catch all the dust. Clean-up is a breeze...just throw the post-it away! 

In case you haven't noticed from our website, we love post-its and now there is another great use for them!

Another option is to hold a dust pan under the drill, which will catch the dust as well.
