Over time it is common for wallpaper to begin to peel. Luckily, there is a simple fix for this common problem — you will need a knife, wallpaper paste, writing paper.

Finally, slide the writing paper out and smooth away any air bubbles with a clean cloth.
Stuck Sliding Windows
To fix your sliding windows you will need a little silicone spray lubricant. You should be able to find silicone spray lubricant at your local hardware store. Spray the lubricant onto a rag, then wipe along the tracks. This fix will work well for nearly every type of window.
Hard-To Remove Light Bulb
Hard-to remove light bulbs are a pain — they break easily and make a simple task tricky. To make a tricky light bulb easy to remove you will only need duct tape.
Press the middle of a foot-long strip of duct tape onto the middle of the bulb. Next, fold each loose end in half so it sticks onto itself. Grip each end of the duct tape and rotate the tape counterclockwise, this will loosen the bulb.
Squeaky Door Hinges
To fix your squeaky door hinges you only need a little petroleum jelly or silicone spray lubricant. Wipe-down your door hinges with either material, and this should resolve your problem. If not, lift the hinge pins about halfway and lubricate them as well, remember to use a rag to catch any excess lubricant.
