In this tech-minded world, our electrical outlets are a vital part of our home. But from loose-fitting plugs to discolored and old receptacles, our outlets can sometimes need a little DIY love. Thankfully, this is an easy and affordable home task; one new standard outlet should just set you back a dollar or two!
This Weekend's Assignment:
Upgrade your home's old and outdated electrical outlets
Take a tour of your home and check out your electrical outlets. Do any look like they need replacing? Or are any just really old and could use a new look? Make a list of the ones you'd like to replace, add up the supplies you'll need and get to work. The how-to below will help. And please remember safety first if you try this assignment (as in double checking that the power is off before doing any work).
Twitter user @capabilitymom tackled the task of cleaning walls last weekend, and they look great!
