Say goodbye to dry lips and sticky screws
Sometimes driving a large screw into a tough piece of wood it can be a bit of a chore. If the wood is super hard you can strip the screw or even break it in two. But if you’re have a tup of lip balm nearby, you’ve already got an easy fix to this problem. Just apply a dab of lip balm to the grooves of the screw. The lip balm will act as a lubricant and the screw will sink in like the wood was butter. Be careful not to overdo it when working on a fine woodworking project. The waxy lip balm could get on the surface of the wood and repel the stain or finish. And you may want to wipe off the end of the lip balm before putting the cap back on.
