Tip sent to me by a reader:
One of my inside doors came off the hinges, at bottom, and was just hanging there. I read somewhere that when screws are loose take a couple or three wooden matches and hammer into the holes...reset the hinge and screw in the screws. Did this up to resetting the screws, as they were old and couldn't get the screwdriver to turn them, so.... I just took the hammer and pounded them in. It's more solid than it has been for years and actually closes very smoothly. - Mrs. Fixit

One only needs two tools in life: WD-40 to make things go, and duct tape to make them stop. - G. M. Weilacher
