I've always been pretty handy about home repairs. I'm very proud of the fact that I have changed the flushie things in both toilets, installed several light fixtures, tiled a hallway and defrosted the clogged water line in the icemaker with a hair dryer.
My garbage disposal is at least 20 years old and gets jammed every couple of months. I've been using the broom-handle method of unjamming it, but today, it didn't work. My mom showed me how to unjam it with an allen wrench in the hole in the bottom of the unit.
The really amazing thing is that I had an allen wrench that actually fit.
