Multi-purpose must-haves to conquer life's mishaps

Tuesday Aug 29th, 2017


Every household has a handy junk drawer with a mismatch of useful items for everyday life. But no matter if yours is in the kitchen, garage or family room, there are a few essential household helpers to help get you through any bind. Here's what to stash in your junk drawer.

Quality tape. There is a reason that duct tape has been called the “handyperson's secret weapon” or “father's favorite fix-all.” Its uses are endless, so be sure you have the best on hand. T-Rex Tape is designed for those moments when you need intense holding power, no matter the application. Whether it's simple, around-the-house fixes, tough projects on your seasonal to-do list, or moments in the great outdoors, there's no project too big or too small for this ferociously strong tape.

Super glue. When your repair is a bit too delicate for tape, turn to a strong super glue for a quick fix. From broken figurines to cracked jewelry, your breaks can be better in a matter of minutes.

WD-40. Known as the can with a thousand uses, WD-40 protects metal from rust and corrosion, penetrates stuck parts, displaces moisture and lubricates just about anything. It's great for anything from lubricating squeaky doors and tight overcoat zippers to rust-proofing tools and cars.

Better safe than sorry… and since you never know when one of these little lifesavers will come in handy, it's a good idea to keep your junk drawer stocked with these must-have household helpers.
