Home DIY projects are a becoming more and more popular – especially among women. Completed projects give a feeling of achievement and pride and can be very fulfilling. Some women may be new to the field of DIY, but that’s great and the more the merrier. Women are patient, thorough, and adopt a no-nonsense approach when things need to get done and hey, we clean up afterwards too. The old exasperated saying of ‘’I need a man’’ is a thing of the past, and DIY is handled quite spectacularly by women on their own. But as with any project from gardening to putting up a shelf, there are some basic safety precautions we need to take care to adhere to, so that we may keep all our fingers in place to hold a glass of wine when we are finished and want to celebrate a job well done. Here are my top DIY saftey tips for women.
1. Find out Everything
Make a complete list of everything you may possibly need to complete your project. Don’t cut corners and read all the directions on the products and labels. Make a strict rule to abide by the directions, and take the precautions that are recommended. Accidents happen when we are too much in a hurry, too impatient, cut corners, don’t have the correct tools or equipment, or simply just don’t bother to read the instructions.
