Thats the idea behind thereifixedit.com, which highlights the unusual ways people fix everything from electrical outlets to car doors without having to call a professional.
Creator Donna Dickens started the website after noticing a man in her rural hometown with a broken AC in his truck.
His solution? Taking off the entire drivers side door so cool air could waft in.
Now, people all over the world submit their own outrageous fix-it solutions.
This includes one persons quick fix for a broken awning by holding it up with crutches, and another who used Maxi Pads to absorb grease at the bottom of their cooking pans.
Dickens is most impressed by fixes that incorporate LEGOs, especially when theyre used to patch up gaps in bricks.
