Toothpaste. Anyone who has ever had to take down thumbtacks from a dorm room with no access to spackle has learned this one — toothpaste does the trick in a jam. Use plain white, let it dry, then sand it down. Another great use for toothpaste is to shine your faucets with it when you spill some in the sink (I picked up that tip from Mrs. Meyers).
