Research Your Fix

Maybe you already know how to perform your fix, or maybe you'd like to gather some information and try to perfect your fix before you share it. Either way, the first step is to make sure you understand it thoroughly so that you can communicate your fix to others in a way that is accurate and free of frustrating setbacks.

Research could include reading articles online, watching videos of similar repairs, or even practicing the repair yourself. You want to gather as much knowledge as you can and find the best way to perform the repair—so take your time, and make certain you really understand your repair. Remember, you’re helping real people keep as much stuff out of landfills as possible!
