If you are not used to working with plaster, you may find that it dries out quickly! To help, add a little household vinegar to the plaster. You will then be able to work with it longer, until your speed increases!
Nails In Plaster
To avoid splitting a plaster wall when driving a nail into it, try heating up the nail first. The hot nail will go through the plaster easier and without any cracks!
Before driving a nail into plaster, make an “X” of scotch tape and your nail has a better chance of not splitting the plaster.
How to clean????Very carefully!!!Use a cellulose sponge and generously apply cleaning solution. Let set for several minutes to work on dirt, then dry and polish with a terry towel. Blot deep indentations carefully!
Save some money on your fuel bill by using your ceiling fan now that you’ve turned on the furnace for the winter heating season. Run the fans in reverse and set the speed control on LOW. The fan will help drive the rising warm air that collects near the ceiling, back down towards the floor-where people need it most to stay warm!
