10 Things People Have Tried To Fix With Everyday Items



We’ve all heard that once something is broken it can’t be fixed, whether it be your heart, your trust or just a broken plate. And we all have that one person that comes into our lives and fixes everything for us, but it’s better to have that one person come into your life be an engineer — then they’ll be able to fix almost anything for you. But what you don’t expect is for them to be amateurs and to just tape a broken plate together. Check out these 10 things that people have tried to fix with everyday items to get an idea on how you can fix some of your broken things.
