No matter what size your workshop is, there are some basic safety tools you should not be without. A smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, safety goggles, and first aid kit are absolute must-haves. Plus, all of your electrical outlets should be equipped with ground-fault circuit interrupters. If an emergency ever should ever arise, a telephone should be nearby to enable you to call for help.
The next time you’re at the store, pick up an extra paper towel holder. When you get home, install it in the front section of your garage and insert a roll of towels. The towels will be accessible and handy for checking the oil in your vehicles and other quick clean-ups. The holder will also help you avoid fumbling with loose rolls or searching out rags.
