Definition: Spackle

You know those holes in your walls from screws and nails? You can easily disguise them by spackling. Spackle is available either as a powder that's mixed with water or as a ready-to-use plastic paste. It's designed to fill cracks and holes in plaster before painting or wallpapering (or before moving out of a rental property).

toothpaste also works for smaller holes

I get a weird kind of satisfaction when I spackle the holes in a wall............very gratifying to be the one that makes it look all new again!

Oh I am soooooooooooooo familiar with this stuff. In the past few years we've gone over all the cracks left over from the 89 earthquake that we just lived with forever, and it's a godsend! (We've called it our "ex-spackle-ganza," hehe) Our walls look perfect now--just in time for the next big one, I suppose ;-)

I volunteer at an art gallery regularly, and I've often had to use spackle to fill in holes in the wall in between exhibitions. It's always a fun mess!
