Fixing a Hole in Your Bathtub for Less Than $5

Credit: Fieryn / Morguefile.com
I have an old ceramic/iron bathtub. When it got a small rust hole in it, I searched everywhere for solutions, and finally, I ended up in the paint department of Home Depot. There I found something that comes in a little round tube called "Plumber's Epoxy".

This stuff is awesome! You pinch off a little piece, play with it a little while to soften it and shape it, then just put it over the hole, smooth out the edges, and voila! Hole fixed. After it sets, which is lightning fast - but they recommend you wait 24 hours - you sand it and put some of that ceramic patch paint on it. You can hardly tell there was a hole, honest!

Well, it isn't really that simple, but just about. I've used it for a lot of stuff, like plugging the hole in a clay bowl so I could turn it into a birdbath, and fixing some cracks in my refrigerator wall. Now, if looks bother you, you won't want to put it in the frig, because it's gray, and it isn't gonna turn white, no matter what you do. But if you're just looking for a quick fix, at a great price, a tube of this stuff cost less than $10 and it keeps virtually forever.

Just wanted to let you know that there IS a cheaper way than to call a professional to patch a tiny hole in your bathtub, or buying a new refrigerator.
