There are plenty of DIY projects that you can find around your home. Some of these activities save you more time and money than others. Many times, trying to tackle a project on your own reaps more benefits and feels more rewarding. Re-caulking your shower is something that needs to be done to protect your bathroom. It’s a fairly simple project that can be done in a day’s time, so with the right instructions, you can avoid hiring a professional. By completing the project, you’ll also avoid the need for costly repairs down the road.  


Cracks in the shower happen due to a natural expanding and contracting of the walls based on changes in temperature and humidity. The seams of your tub are also vulnerable to these changes since these seams are affected and jarred when people step in and out of the tub. 


While this all sounds kind of complicated, doing the job of re-caulking yourself can really save you a lot of money in the long term. Noticing that there is a potential problem with your tub is the first step to saving money, as it will prevent bigger repairs from being necessary later on.  


Here’s What You’ll Need:


Water or silicone based caulk

Knife

Rags


First, you’ll need to prepare your shower. You should clean both the shower and tub thoroughly. This will get all of the residue and mildew off of your walls. Next, you’ll need to dig out all of the old caulking from the seams of the tub and the shower. The idea here is to leave a clean slate to put in the new caulking. 


Now, you’re ready to apply the new caulking. Cut the opening of the applicator to 1/8 inch in diameter. Next, squeeze out the caulking continuously in long lines. Caulk dries fast, so you’ll need to complete this task one section at a time. 


Finally, you’ll want to smooth the line that you have created from the caulking. As soon as you lay the caulking, you should smooth it with your finger. Then, wipe away any excess caulk with a rag. You can reform any joints with warm, soapy water and your fingers. If any excess caulk dries around the tile, use the knife to remove it. You really should be prepared to get your hands dirty for this project.       


You should wait about 12 hours to use the shower to allow the new caulking to dry completely. This simple do-it-yourself project can really make your bathroom look better and cleaner.

Ready to pack your clothing for moving day? Ultimately, packing apparel and accessories can be a hassle, particularly for those who have only a limited amount of time to prepare for a move. Lucky for you, we're here to help streamline the process of getting your clothing ready for moving day.

Now, let's take a look at three tips for packing clothing before moving day arrives.

1. Sort Through Your Clothing

Take a look inside your closet and sort through your apparel and accessories – you'll be glad you did. If you organize your clothing today, you may be able to save time down the line.

Determine which clothing you plan to keep and which no longer suits your style. Then, you can eliminate assorted apparel and accessories from your wardrobe.

With excess clothes that are in good condition, you may be able to sell or donate these items. Before you do so, however, you should make sure that all of your clothing is clean.

If you find clothes that are ripped or torn, there is no need to bring them to your new address. Instead, dispose of any damaged clothes, and you can avoid the hassle of transporting these items from Point A to Point B.

2. Group Your Clothing

Group your clothing, and you can organize your apparel and accessories and speed up the process of unpacking your clothing once you reach your new address.

There are many ways that you can group apparel and accessories. Some people choose to group clothing by season. Or, you may want to group your clothing by material or purpose.

Regardless of how you group your clothes, you'll want to label moving boxes that contain clothing accordingly. This will ensure that you can instantly locate your clothing after your move and start unpacking your apparel and accessories right away.

3. Consider What You'll Wear on Moving Day

Although you'll want to pack as much as possible prior to moving day, you should put aside clothing that you intend to wear on moving day.

It often pays to pack clothing as close to moving day as you can. That way, you can keep a close eye on the weather forecast and ensure you can put aside appropriate apparel and accessories for moving day.

Furthermore, if you're moving in summertime, you may want to set aside a pair of sunglasses and hat for maximum sun protection. On the other hand, you may want to keep a pair of winter gloves and other seasonal accessories on hand if you're preparing for a winter move.

If you need extra help getting ready for moving day, you may want to consult with a real estate agent. This housing market professional can offer honest, unbiased recommendations to help you prepare your clothing and other belongings for your upcoming move.

Use the aforementioned moving tips, and you should have no trouble packing all of your clothing prior to moving day.
