We spend enough time working throughout our lives, so anytime there are easier ways to fix things around the house (without burning through precious time or money), it should be a no brainer to take a look. Here are nine examples of easy DIYs to improve your home experience.

2. Did you know that plumbers will often charge extra if Drano has been used on a drain? It’s due to the corrosiveness of the product.
