If you have furniture and other outdoor equipment on your patio or deck, bring them inside when strong weather threatens. Don't forget trash cans, grills, toys, and potted plants. Keep them from becoming flying objects that can cause additional injury or damage during storms with high winds.
When power mixing, reduce the splattering by putting the container in a large trash bag.
Color does more than beautify. It affects our moods and energy levels, influences our sense of temperature, and alters our perception of space. The most basic guide to the impact of color is warm vs. cool: Warm Colors – Shades of red, yellow, and orange are cheery, animating, and bright. They can even stimulate appetite and conversation. Cool Colors – Blues, greens, and violets are more calming and serene. These hues lend a feeling of harmony to a home.
You can attach a length of soft copper tubing to extend the reach of a blow gun nozzle used with an air compressor. The extra length will allow you to clean out motors and interior machine parts without getting a face full of dust. The end of the tubing can be bent to reach around the back side of motors or into other hard-to-reach areas. Use a wet/dry vac along with the blow gun to help keep dust out of the shop.
