Following the ongoing success of my ‘Handy Household Tips’ during talks at Cirencester Baptist Church – here are the details for fixing a towel or curtain rail that I mentioned in today’s talk. You can’t say you don’t get your money’s worth at CBC!
- Remove the old screw and rawplug. Clean out the hole entirely. Fill the hole with a filler such as cement, strong wall filler or similar. I used a putty for repairing stonework in fireplaces (I happen to have a tub).
- Whilst still wet, insert a new rawplug into the centre of the filler.
- Leave the filler to fully harden (the time for this will vary depending on what you’ve used).
- Attach your rail using a new screw. Job done.
