Blog Prompt – The toothpick was patented in 1872. Besides the obvious use of the toothpick, is there something else you use this invention for?
I have never been much on using toothpicks. My husband uses them everyday. I have been known to use one when I eat corn, but thats about it.
My husband taught me how to use toothpicks when you need to to put a screw back in a hole that has gotten too big for the screw. Just break off pieces of the toothpick and put next to the screw. This way the screw will have something to grab onto when replacing it back in the wall. You can use this shim method in many small areas. Works great!
