As holidays and occasions become more retail-oriented, it can be refreshing to look at Father’s Day and instead of wondering what to buy dad, ask yourself how you can help dad. This Father’s Day, consider skipping the tie and spend time helping dad around the home. Below are a few ideas of home maintenance tasks that dads of all ages frequent the most. See any that you can help dad with?
Mow the Lawn
Make Dad’s lawn maintenance simpler by tackling dad’s weekly grass makeover for him. Did he beat you to it this week? No problem. You can still chip in around the yard by pulling weeds, raking leaves, or by simply cleaning off the yard’s power equipment so it is primed for next week’s use.
Clean Drain Pipes
Why not “refresh” some of the home’s plumbing? After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
A popular, natural drain cleaner consists of nothing more than water, vinegar, and baking soda.
- Run hot water down the drain to free up any obviously lodged foods.
- Dump a half cup of baking soda down the drain. Let sit for a few minutes.
- Pour 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of hot water down the drain.
- Cover with a drain plug to minimize surface bubbling. Let site for ten minutes.
What an easy, affordable way to unclog that pesky drain that dad’s been meaning to get to.
Take Out The Trash or Clean The Garbage Can
Few things are as boring as taking at the trash. Unfortunately, it is also unavoidable. Haul out the trash for dad. While it may not be exciting it is easy, and dad will appreciate it.
Really want to be a trooper? Clean out the kitchen garbage. How many times have things spilled in the trash and we let it sit there? While it is easier to clean off a liquid than to scrape it off after it dries, we rarely do. The garbage is, well, the garbage. When stuff spills in the garbage can we rarely do much about it. By polishing up the old waste basket, you’ll really surprise dad.
