Tip & How-To about Home
Over time, screws in wood become loose, such as in a cabinet door, and no longer tighten. This is because the threads in the wood have stripped out. The solution is easy: Obtain toothpicks and wood glue. Coat a toothpick with glue, and insert into the stripped out hole. Keep inserting coated toothpicks until you have to use a hammer to lightly tap the last toothpick in. Allow the glue to dry overnight. After drying, cut the toothpicks off flush with the wood using a small knife. You now have a new area to re-insert the screw.
