Tip: Patching nail holes

Don't use white crayons to patch nail holes in a white wall. It may look good at first but later it is difficult to paint wax. A better solution is to fill the hole with a little drywall compound, then sand it and touch up with paint. Doing it right is more work, but it won't create a headache later.
