    Lightbulb correction fluid not just for paper

    I'm crocheting a little Christmas Village and while blocking the pieces last night, did not realize that some of my straight pins were going to leave rust spots. I was unable to wash these pieces . Went to my desk drawer and drug out the old trusty bottle of White Out. Covered the rust spots beautifully, all I have to do is apply light coat of Mog Podge to the spots. Problem solved. Lesson learned - don't use straight pins you haven't used in years.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    My den's paneling is painted white. I use white out to touch up spots on it, especially door facings!

    Years ago when we bought our first Rottie, the kennel used it to mark the puppies. Until we named him, ours was "Middle of the Back". A neat system.

    When we put white panels in our breezeway, they were nailed on with white coated nails. And what do suppose happened to those white nail heads. They lost their white when they were hammered in. So white-out fixed them.
    It's really just paint, and I use it wherever white would look better than the black that I see. It even comes with its own little brush for application.
