Have you ever drilled a hole in a wall? I often do this (i really like bookshelfs, and fischer-screws :) ), but I HATE to clean the dust, after the job! So, to make things easier, i've tought a simple trick: the DRILL-DUST-BAG!!
Step 1: Needed Material
What do you need is just:
- a paper sheet: better if "saved" from the trashcan :)
- masking tape
Step 2: Let's Make It!
Take your paper sheet, and a little strip of masking tape (let's say... 10cm... 4 inches). Fold your paper sheet, and stick the first strip on the left. Then take another strip of the same size, and stick it on the right side.
Once you've made this, take another little strip of tape and apply it on a margin of the sheet, sticking just a part of it on the sheet. (This strip will be used to stick the bag on the wall)
Step 3: Stick It on the Wall!
You're done! Stick it on the wall, just below the hole you are going to make, and drill! All the dust will fall in the bag.
Step 4: Finally, Cleaning Made Easy
The easier part: cleaning! Simply unstick the bag from the wall, and trash the dust you've made (you can trash also the bag, if you don't need it anymore....).
So, finally your wife will non bother you anymore for the dust on the floor!!!
Bye, hope you'll find my little idea useful ;)
