Ghostbust a Door

Little Lizzie, your monster-phobic niece, will totally freak if that out-of-plumb door swings open in the middle of the night. To avoid this trauma, you could take off the door and carefully realign the hinges. Or, just pull one of the hinge pins, set it on a hard surface, and whack its middle with a hammer. This will bend the pin slightly so that when you tap it back in, the hinge will resist the force—gravity—that's pulling the door open.
