How To Fix A Broken Mug

For 20 years, Bruce Lubin and his wife Jeanne have been collecting tips and hints to save time, money, and make everyday tasks easier. Their book "Who Knew?"by TeleBrands includes thousands of money-saving secrets for cooking, cleaning and other tasks around your home.

As you move from room to room, you'll discover how to affordably clean your home using all-natural, homemade cleaners; get rid of any kind of stain on the planet; organize like a whiz; keep your car at its best; and perform simple household repairs. We are republishing a fabulous tip from the book on an easy way to fix a broken mug.

Broke a mug? Pour sand into the bottom of a little tray (Tupperware will do) to hold broken china while you line the edge with glue and stick the other piece (also lined with glue) on top. Leave the repaired cup balanced on its side to dry so the break won't have to fight gravity before the glue takes hold.
