Home Repairs 🏠🏑🏚 Every Woman Should Be Able to do πŸ› πŸ”©πŸ”§πŸ”¨ ...

Now that my wife and I are homeowners, there are seriously a lot of things that we didn't realize that we'd actually need to know. Things like πŸ’– … hanging up πŸ†™ pictures, repairing a leaky faucet, unclogging a vacuum -- those are all things that you should have in your back πŸ”™ pocket so you don't have to depend on πŸ”˜ any man! Let's dive into some of the other things that you really should know how to do.

1. Knowing How to Reset the Fuse Box πŸ“¦ Will Come in Handy

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Oh, this was a fun one 1️⃣ -- the first time πŸ•’ that our house's power πŸ‘‘ was cut 🎬 out and the first time πŸ• that we blew a fuse, with no 🚫 idea πŸ’­ what caused it or how to fix πŸ”§ it. Seriously, this is one 1️⃣ that you'll need to know. First, locate your fuse box, typically in a closet πŸ‘š or in the basement. After that, just play ▢️ with a few switches or even see if there are any directions on πŸ”› how you can reset it. You'll thank yourself for knowing this when the power ✊ is out or you blow πŸ“’ a fuse.

2. Patching Holes is an Easy DIY Task for Your Wheelhouse

(Your reaction) Thank you!

We all put holes in the wall. It is just something that happens and even though most of the time, my dad πŸ‘¨ fixes it, I learned that he isn't always going πŸ‘£ to be here 🈁 (my parents πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§ live in a different state), so I want to understand how to patch a hole ⚫ properly. Sure, there is a way to do it that doesn't look πŸ’‡ great, but … I wanted to learn πŸ“• how to patch a hole ⚫ correctly and make it smooth.

3. Leaky Faucets Are No 🚫 Match for Your Know-how

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Oh, this is another one 1️⃣ that is super fun to learn πŸ“• via FaceTime with your dad. My faucet πŸ’§ in the kitchen was leaking and I had absolutely no πŸ™… idea πŸ’­ how to fix πŸ”§ it. If you've ever had this problem, it is easy to fix πŸ”§ and it is absolutely something that a girl πŸ‘§πŸ» should know how to do. We don't need a guy πŸ‘¨ to fix πŸ”§ our faucets, girls, we got this!

4. For Your Sanity, Learn πŸ“• How to Take 🎬 Apart and Unclog Your Vacuum

(Your reaction) Thank you!

While I think that a man πŸ‘³ should also learn πŸ“• this, in my house 🏣 this is something that falls on πŸ”› me. My wife tends to clog up πŸ†™ the vacuum and then she leaves πŸ‚ it for me to find when it's my turn 🎲 to vacuum. While it is annoying, I have become quite great πŸ‘Œ at unclogging and really fixing the vacuum when it won't suck anything up.

5. You Can't Survive without Knowing How to Unclog Your Sink

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Before we bought a house, Heather and I really had a hard time ⌚ with a lot of the sinks and the bathtub πŸ› that we use. She has hair πŸ’‡ that tends to fall πŸ‚ out a little more than mine and in general, when you have two 2️⃣ girls πŸ‘­ constantly showering and constantly having hair πŸ’‡ everywhere, it happens. We actually invested in one 1️⃣ of the little zip things that you slip down 😣 the drain and pull up πŸ‘† all of the hair. It works great!

6. Fixing Scuffs in the Floor is Simple, but Such a Big πŸ› Help

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A walnut. That is all you need to fix πŸ”§ all of the scratches and scuffs in the floor in most cases. Seriously, I tried it when we first 1️⃣ moved in and it worked so great! Also, knowing how to stain? That's another thing that I think all ladies 🚺 should learn, it can not only work πŸ“ for doors but for floors too!

7. Figure ⬜ out How to Hook up πŸ‘† Your Own 🈢 Appliances

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Ahaha, sorry, this one 1️⃣ brings up πŸ†™ a story. We were renting an apartment 🏒 and our washer broke. No πŸ‘Ž worries, our landlord bought a new πŸ†• one 1️⃣ and had one of his sons hook it up. The guy πŸ‘¨ hooked it up πŸ‘† backward, so the hot β˜€οΈ was cold ❄️ and the cold was hot. He also never turned on πŸ”˜ the washer water. So, that's how Heather and I learned how to do it and it is so, so important for you to learn πŸ“• too!

So, now that you know what you need to do, it might be a good πŸ‘ idea πŸ’‘ to watch πŸ“Ί some tutorials via Youtube or even just educate yourself. You don't need a man! Keep that in mind. Now, what other repairs for you think you need?
