Use a magnet to find your lost screws and fixings

When you’re busy doing D.I.Y. the floor can get littered with sawdust, wood shavings, fallen nails, screws, nuts and bolts. The simplest way to find them all is to sweep up the mess, then run an industrial magnet over the pile. The magnet will pick up them all up, then you can put them in a container for safe keeping and pop the rest of the pile in the bin.
