comment How do I remove a rust stain on my bathroom vanity counter?
I've had success with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser before. I'm not sure how it will affect your counter top though.

comment How do I remove plastic shelving molly clips?
What's going to stop the part in the wall from simply spinning with the screw when you try to screw them back together?

comment How do I remove plastic shelving molly clips?
You can certainly try, but I don't think it will work. Before you do though, ask yourself this: Will it cost more than $10 in damages if the shelf rips off the wall and drops the contents on the floor? If so, go ahead and spend that $10 on the stud clips I mentioned in my answer.

OrganicLawnDIY has a good point. Have you tried just removing the pin with a pair of pliers? If that's all that's holding the toggle portion open, then you may be able to wiggle them out afterwards.

I don't think that would work. The metal portion isn't a screw - it's a straight pin that simply forces open the plastic anchor once inside the wall. Plus the base inside the wall is likely to fall off inside the wall once you cut it flush. That's what happens to standard toggle bolts when you uninstall them too.

comment How do I remove this stuck faucet valve cartridge?
Do you have the replacement part already? Post a picture of its threads, and we'll be able to tell you if it's a left-handed thread. Otherwise, I'd take this picture to your local home improvement store and visit the faucet repair aisle. Get an employee to help you match it, and they should be able to tell you what the thread direction is.

comment Drywall installation on the ceiling without help
Using a drywall bit can help you get the right depth for setting your screws without tearing the paper.

comment How can I stop this GFCI receptacle from tripping?
FYI, you can buy an alarm to warn you when the GFCI trips.
