Let me tell you where to go looking for their.own front door: Lots of people, especially in old houses, have added plumbing, pipes, showers, and electrical equipment which call for new sources of inlets and outlets for the pipes and wires. Once in a while a repairman installing these gadgets will either cut a square hole or make his round hole too big to fit that certain pipe. Here is where the little rascals get through when they come visit us. Let's block their entrance! You and I both know that you cannot fill a hole with wood. So ... get a piece of plain steel wool, take your screw driver and fill the excess space where a big cockroach or mouse might enter your premises. your water pipe comes in, perhaps in a newly added bathroom, or any appliance connected to an outside outlet which calls for professional installation. And even if your house is new, look for this "little frontdoor" anyway. It can usually be found.

I then replace the buttons with elastic sewing thread. This light "give" prevents the but ons from being torn off. I also use elastic sewing threat o reinforce the stretched neck and wrist bands on my children'? sweaters.

The bag i easier to get open when needed Just try it.
