If you have partial cans of old paint sitting in your garage that you definitely won’t need, just add the same amount of kitty litter to the can as there is paint – it will dry out the paint and you can safely throw it away.

Tip 2: Safely Get a Broken Lightbulb Out of a Lamp

If a filament lightbulb breaks in your lamp, just push a half potato onto the broken part, and unscrew. (Make sure the lamp is turned off/unplugged first.)
