A Checklist To Basic Home Repair Toolkit

Owning a house comes with plenty of repair needs too! After some time, your home will need repairs, especially for roofing, plumbing, and electrical. If you only need some simple repairs, don’t call for a specialist yet and try to do it yourself. 


To accomplish simple house repairs, it’s important to have the right tools! From pliers to hammers, here’s a short checklist to have your own basic home repair toolkit.


This isn’t a complete and one-size-fits-all list. Some larger and newer houses may need more because the installed systems are more complex.


  • Hammers and wrenches

  • Different sizes of nails

  • A set of screwdrivers (both flathead and Phillips)

  • Different sizes of screws

  • Tape measure

  • Hand saw

  • Rulers and levels

  • A set of pliers (Long nose, cutting, wire stripper, etc)

  • Small ladder


What are simple repairs that you can do yourself?




With these tools at your home, there are plenty of easy repairs you can do! From tightening loose screws to changing light bulbs, here are simple house repairs that you can do yourself.


Squeaking doors


While this may not be a big nuisance, a squeaking door can get to your nerves. If they’re a bit loose, use the appropriate screw-head to tighten them. If they start to build up rust, change the screws one by one so you don’t have to loosen the door at once.


Loose knobs


Cabinets, cupboards, dressers, or any kind of knobs can loosen from constant opening and closing. Before they loosen completely, tighten the bolts. Simply use the appropriate screwdriver to make sure knobs are bolted properly.


Changing light bulbs


Changing busted light bulbs is easy. However, it can be if you stand on an unsteady base. Use a small ladder and make sure you lay it out properly. While you can change the bulb even if the switch is on, it’s advisable to turn it off — just to be sure!

It’s a hassle to fix furniture, fixtures, and cabinetries as soon as you move in. That’s why it’s important to purchase a home that promises quality craftsmanship — from noticeable things like the color of the paint, tile work, and the quality of design to small things like knobs, light bulbs, faucets, and cabinetries.

Flaunt Your Pride with Pantene

The freedom to fully express one's identity without fear of judgement is the fruit of years of fighting for equal rights and representation, and every June, we celebrate how far we've come with LGBTQIA+ Pride month.  

It takes courage to embrace your truth and tell your story to the world. That's why it's important to put the spotlight on those who have already found the courage and confidence to flaunt their pride, so that they can inspire others to do the same —  just like these strong women.  

Mela’s journey to womanhood began with her hair. After years of wearing synthetic wigs or putting a bath towel over her head, she finally let her hair grow long. “At first, I tried to joke about it, “Ma, pagbigyan mo na ako! Rocker na ako ngayon!” She shared on her Instagram post. As time went by, she realized that having straight, smooth, and jet black hair felt right. “I was meant to rock my hair with confidence.”

She found pride in her crowning glory and made sure to give it the proper care it needed. “… Everytime people complimented my hair, my honest, consistent, and confident reply has always been, “Alagang Pantene yan!”, Mela proudly shared in her Instagram post. “I have always flaunted my hair with pride because [it] reflects my journey to being the free and authentic Mela that I am today. As a proud trans woman with feminine expression, my hair has been my source of power. And that’s definitely Salontastic!”


“As a member and supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community, I, too have my own journey in raising my voice for my happiness and myself.” Chezka shared on her Instagram. 

Chezka, like many others, was afraid of how her family and friends would react to her identity. So, she joined predominantly female activities like modelling and beauty pageants as she tried to figure out how she wanted to present herself. Later on she realized that she wanted to express herself physically as a woman, “…and that’s why I started growing my long straight hair with Pantene. Because Pantene has always been there in helping me feel stronger and Salontastic! Flaunt your #Pride with Pantene. I’m truly thankful for my community in helping me understand them and myself. Know that you are not alone and that we are heard.”


Allies also play a role in helping make the LGBTQIA+ community a safe space by fostering a culture of acceptance and respect, and advocating for equal rights and opportunities.

Gabbi, an ally, shows her full support for the LGBTQIA+ community in her Instagram post. “I’ve always been a proud supporter ever since I was young. I believe that everyone should be treated with love and respect. There is definitely no room for hate in this world! Everyone can be Salontastic regardless of gender!”

Let your hair take pride and flaunt it with Pantene Miracle Conditioners. With Pantene Keratin Straight Miracle Conditioner you can help reduce frizz for that sleek, straight look. While with Pantene Collagen Miracle Conditioner, you can turn dry, frizzy hair into shiny, Salontastic hair.*

Both conditioners are formulated with a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, with special ingredients like Miracle Serum, real Collagen, and Keratin straighteners that moisturize hair and help strengthen hair against damage* to give you everyday #Salontastic results. 

Take pride in your hair and get that #SalontasticTransformation with Pantene. Explore more from Pantene’s wide range of haircare products through the P&G Shopee Mall store.

Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI)—the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country—aims to secure Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) from Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), one of the world’s leading audit and certification companies. 


PCPPI bagged FSSC for its Muntinlupa, Santo Tomas, Rosario, Davao and Bacolod plants. It is working towards certifying its other six plants in Cebu City, Naga City, Zamboanga City, Cagayan de Oro City, Iloilo City, and Tanauan within the year.


“It is imperative to strengthen our food safety practices and standards which we have always valued in PCCPI. We always aim to produce quality products that do not just comply with regulatory requirements but exceed customer expectations, as well,” said PCPPI President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Frederick Ong. 


The company’s certification aligns with World Health Organization’s goals as it marks this month’s World Food Safety Day. This year’s theme is “Safe food now for a healthy tomorrow.” 


The company follows stringent measures on food safety and quality. Its policy requires high food safety targets, regular process reviews, and strong food safety culture across all levels in the organization.  


To further ensure quality production, PCPPI aligns with PepsiCo global practices. These include random trade sampling to verify food safety compliance and increasing food hygiene awareness among stakeholders. 


Owing to its strict food safety practices, PCPPI’s Zamboanga plant was recently given the PepsiCo Caleb Bradham Award. The distinction is presented to Pepsi manufacturing plants which exhibit exemplary food safety and quality assurance practices. 


“PCPPI believes that a strong food safety culture helps us promote food hygiene outside our operations. Our consumers will remain confident in our brands and in our ability to refresh them with clean and safe drinks,” Ong added.

Discover the Advanced Way to Relieve Cough in Just 3 Days!

 


With the threat of the pandemic still very much present in the country, a simple cough is enough to cause heightened anxiety these days because it is one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19. Unlike before where this matter was usually taken lightly by most, the current situation has people rushing to find a solution when the first signs of a cough arise.

 

Coughs are our bodies’ natural response to expel unwanted organisms from our lungs caused by allergies, irritants, asthma, and the most common of all, viruses. Although coughs caused by common viruses go away in time, it's better to treat them as soon as possible and equip our bodies with added immunity for faster recovery.

 

In the Philippines, only one cough medicine combines the trusted formulation of Solmux with an essential mineral for faster recovery: Solmux Advance, the only one with Zinc! This unique and powerful combination of Carbocisteine and Zinc is proven effective to reduce cough bouts in as fast as 3 days, compared to the usual 10 to 14 days of recovery. The addition of Zinc to Carbocisteine not only liquifies sticky phlegm, but also improves the body’s immunity for faster recovery from cough.

 

Carbocisteine is scientifically proven to treat cough with phlegm and other respiratory tract disorders, and have properties that inhibit viruses and bacteria, making it more difficult for microorganisms to cause infections. The right levels of Zinc, on the other hand, can help speed up recovery from infections like the common cold through its action on immunity. It also activates white blood cells to help the body fight off viruses including coronaviruses.

 

Given the continued increase in COVID-19 cases every day plus the occurrence of other viral respiratory infections, Filipinos can protect themselves and their loved ones with a more advanced 2-in-1 solution for faster cough relief.
