Repair Advice for the Real World
Do you need Help?
1. When faced with unassembled furniture, your first instinct is to:
(a) stare blankly
(c) return it
2. You associate screwdrivers mainly with:
(b) orange juice
3. You have often wished your living space did not involve:
(a) exploding toilets
(b) wildly varying temperatures
(c) a new pet mouse
If you chose any of the above, this is the book for you!
Whether you live in a house, an apartment, or a 9 x 12 dorm room, chances are pretty good that sooner or later, something in your home will break. So why not be prepared? If you can barely tell a nut from a bolt, then Help, It’s Broken! is your quick reference for all home-repair issues. Expert Arianne Cohen explains what to do in dozens of real-life scenarios, including when:
•your favorite earring slips down the sink
•your key sticks in the front door lock
•your air conditioner stops cooling in mid-August
•you’ve painted the bedroom window shut
Illustrated throughout, this handy reference also includes tips on security and pest control, plus a useful yearly maintenance calendar and resource guide. Best of all, Help, It’s Broken! shows you not only how to fix it all yourself but how to get other people to fix things for you—on the cheap, or even better, for free.
