3. This Doesn’t Look Very Safe

Painting a house is one of the most common repairs. However, you should never do what these guys are doing in the photo. They placed a ladder onto the ledge of a stairwell, so it’s dangling over an open staircase with at least a 12-foot drop. All of this is hanging in the balance of a friend spotting the man who is standing on the ladder trying to paint the wall. I truly hope the man was able to get down without ending up in the hospital.

2. Skateboard Bath Tray

Rather than a repair, this next one is more of a clever DIY. Instead of using a bath tray, they decided to take an old skateboard and lay it across the tub, instead. You may want to call this “redneck engineering” rather than a repair fail. But as long as it works, there’s no issue with this, right?

1. The Quickest Way to Dry Jeans

No repair to see here. Just the fastest way to dry a pair of jeans. This person decided to put a pair of jeans on the floor, and hold it down with textbooks. Next, they used a blow-dryer to secure it to the back of the jeans and blow hot air through it. There’s no way of telling if this is truly a faster way to dry jeans than just putting them in the dryer. But people on the Internet have declared it so.
