DIY

Recently my mop gave way. It broke just at the neck of the mop. Some of us might just throw it away but I didn't. I just put it there on the pail till this morning. I had got a new wooden stick from my shop. I even borrowed the spanner from my shop.

I wanted to loosen the neck but it wouldn't budge. I had done it before for my customer and it worked.
So I broke it and started digging the remains with my screwdriver.
Then I just screwed the new wooden stick into the hole of the neck. 
Voila! It's new again!

  1. Hello Wenn,

    I like this. It is good to use the items that can still be used after fixing. You are a handy woman, can handle DIY.
