Get a solid hold on your screws without stripping them

Club member Robert Braud of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, went to the kitchen sink for this tip. To prevent a Philips-head screwdriver from camming out of a worn or partially stripped screw head, he uses a paste of powdered cleanser (such as Ajax or Comet) and water. He mixes the solution to the consistency of toothpaste — about two parts cleaner to one part water. The gritty mixture gives the screwdriver tip extra grip.
