Less Mess Drilling Walls

Less Mess Drilling Walls

To make Less Mess Drilling Walls, take an ordinary envelope, fold in the tab, and tape it to the wall just below the area where you’re working. As you drill, the dust falls in the envelope, not on the floor.

Alternatively, take a PostIt Note and create a fold across the middle of it, parallel to the sticky edge. Stick it directly under where you are about to drill and catch the dust.

For those bigger jobs, where a great deal of dust is created, ask a friend to hold the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner directly under the drilling area.  This will capture not only the debris from the hole, but also the dust which is always throw into the air.
