Big projects like painting the house or putting in new floors can transform the look and feel of your home. Don’t forget the power of small fixes and repairs that if left untreated may become an unintentional focal point of the room. Check out this cheap, quick and easy fix for scuffed countertops below.
- Crayons, 99 cents
- Spatula knife, 99 cents
A microwave-safe bowl, 99 cents (If you have one you’re willing to sacrifice to melt crayons, you just saved another 99 cents.)
Total: $2.97. $3.96 if you throw in a weak lemonade-type drink.
What you do:
- Pick the Crayon whose color comes closest to matching your countertop. Peel off the paper and place it in the bowl.
- Pop the crayon and bowl in the microwave.
- Pour the hot, melted crayon onto the scuff mark and work it into the indentation with the spatula knife.
- Scrape off the excess with the spatula knife.
The Crayon mixture will harden and dry quickly, erasing your countertop flaw.
