How To Remove A Towel Bar From a Bathroom Neat and Clean

We’re going to talk about how to remove a towel rack and seal up all the holes so that you won’t even be able to see that there was a towel rack there.
All the right first thing we’re going to do is to need some a spackling compound. We’re going to need something that says I what I use, and I’m not pushing this particular brand. This happens to be the one I use as a non-shrinking um spackle because the worst thing you can do is spackle it. I think it’s going to be perfect. Then when they drop when it dries, you find out that it’s not. It has a dimple in the drawing wall all right, so get a non-shrinking spackle to pick yourself up a spackle knife, and the only other thing you’re going to need is probably going to be a Phillips head screwdriver and a small screwdriver to take out the screw that holds this to the cleat that’s mounted on the wall.

Need Some A Spackling Compound

All the right first thing we’re going to do is to need some a spackling compound. We’re going to need something that says I what I use, and I’m not pushing this particular brand. This happens to be the one I use as a non-shrinking um spackle because the worst thing you can do is spackle it. I think it’s going to be perfect. Then when they drop when it dries, you find out that it’s not. It has a dimple in the drawing wall all right, so get a non-shrinking spackle to pick yourself up a spackle knife, and the only other thing you’re going to need is probably going to be a Phillips head screwdriver and a small screwdriver to take out the screw that holds this to the cleat that’s mounted on the wall.

Best Screwdriver For pull out

This screwdriver comes to me from one of my friends uh Wyatt one able thank you very much it’s going to come in handy today all right first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to take the screwdriver, and we’re going to remove a tiny Phillips head flat head screw which is right here, and it’s right here on this other side as well all right let me bring you in and show you. What I mean right in there that tiny screw there, so we’re going to loosen that screw, and then we’re going to come along over here, and we’re going to loosen that screw right there again.

okay, all right, take your fill your flat head screwdriver and loosen the screw uphold the bar. You do not want it to fall and break the tiles.

Now the only thing I will tell you is that sometimes over some time, it may have been painted so that it could be possibly the threads may be covered, so it’s hard to take it off, but you may have to loosen it up or get the paint out of the threaded area.

Okay, that’s one, and we’ll take this one off as well like The next thing we’re going to do is we’re going to take out these two screws right here as well.

Okay, now we do have touch-up paint. We’re going to touch up this wall, but we need to fix these holes that you see right in here first here and here and here, and the way you want to do that now is there are no mollies in there.

If there was a molly in there, you want to pull it out. The molly is a drywall anchor that goes in there, but here you can see there were no mollies in there, so we’re just going to take this, and we’re going to push this in just a little bit and create a dimple going in so we’re going to do that like this, and you can see how it pushes in a little bit, and you can use anything to do that you could use a screwdriver you could use your sparkling tool.

Little Bit Of The Painted Lip

Okay, the same thing over here okay now next thing I’m going to do, we have a little bit of the painted lip right on here from a couple of different painting times it was done, so we’re going to scrape that off just a little bit just so it’s nice and smooth. The same thing on this side over here now if you take your time doing this once you finish the spackling here, you’ll never even see where it used to be all right, so now we’re going to grab us uh our spackle, and let’s fill this in. so we grab a little spackle on here we’re going to push it into the hole so that it goes in as far as you can get the spackle in same thing here so. next thing we’re going to do now is we’re going to let this dry a little bit. Then once it dries, we’ll come in here and wipe it off, and we’ll see if it needs a second coat of spackle on it.

After The Spackle Dries

Then after the spackle dries, you just come in here with a damp cloth, and you just wet it and keep going like this until you clean off all of the rough textured areas, and then we’re going to come in here with a little bit of spackle again, and we’re going to touch up these tiny holes right here because you can see it dimpled in just a little bit and the same thing on this side over here. Let’s get the spackle, and let’s finish this off. Okay, so that’s it, then the job will be done as soon as this dries off. We’re just going to come in here with the wet paper towel again and smooth it down, and then this job is then done, ready to be painted. It’ll be perfectly all right as always. Thanks for watching, and I’ll see you in the next one.
