Caulk Does the Trick

I had to switch off a few circuit breakers in my basement and found it hard to see the stamped numbers on my electrical panel because its pretty dark down there. Tired of squinting, I decided to make them easier to see with a little bit of white painters caulk. I put a dab on each of the numbers and wiped off the excess with my finger, leaving behind easy-to-read numbers. Casey Overland
