Things You'll Need
Ice Cubes
You may think that you're ready for any problem that may arise at your house, but these ideas may make you think again.
1. When a toilet begins to overflow, don't grab for the plunger and towels; reach for the shut-off valve. It is right at the base of the toilet, and will close off the water supply so that you can deal with the clog. Then, when you're finished, just turn it back on.
2. If there is a power outage while you're out of town, the food in your freezer could defrost and re-freeze without your knowledge. If you cook that food, you and your family could become ill. Keep a glass of ice cubes in the freezer, if you come back and the cubes appear to have melted, then you know the freezer was off, and to throw everything away!
3. Know where your main power shut-off is located. The best thing to do if there is an electrical emergency is to turn off the electricity at the source and then deal with the problem.
