The Toolkit

There are some tools every households needs to have.


You need a good drill set for projects ranging from hanging artwork to making simple repairs around the house. We’re big fans of Black+Decker, and the BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX Drill & Home Tool Kit does the trick.

It’s cordless with a rechargeable battery so you can use it anytime, anywhere. It also comes with a screwdriver attachment, plier, a wrench and a hammer, so it can serve as the basis of your whole toolkit.

Cleaning up rust

Metals rust over time, so chances are at some point you’ll have a project that involves repairing a rusty drainpipe or some other object. Here are some of the tools and chemical agents you might use.

Rust Remover

Rust removers are chemical agents that will remove rust thoroughly. If you want to use one of these, there are a lot of choices out there, and they are all designed to leave you with a smooth surface for painting. Evapo-Rust is considered one of the best by many people who have used it or tested it. 

Wire Brush

You may want to use a wire brush instead of or in addition to a rust remover agent.

They come in different shapes and sizes for the job. Using them takes some elbow grease, but they can be great for small jobs.

Fine Sandpaper

Fine sandpaper will take off light rust, or help create a very smooth painting surface after the wire brush has done its work.
