Homemade Spackle

by Larry Parr
Spackle is used to fill small holes in plaster walls. It is a white paste that dries hard and can be sanded smooth and painted. When you need to patch small holes in your walls, there's no need to purchase spackle. You can make your own with simple ingredients you already have around your kitchen.
