Screw Lube

Tatum’s Tuesday Tips? Use bar soap to coax your screws.

What do I mean you ask? Welp, sometimes screws get stuck or don’t move so easily into work surfaces during the process of that DIY project. An easy fix, according to an older Southern gentleman friend of my Father’s, is to use soap. He is a retired carpenter and wood working master. Simply roll the screw over a bar of soap (Octagon in my case) and the waxy residue offers aid so that the screw moves more fluidly into the surface.

Until Next Time…
