Temporary Fix for a Hose Leak

Create a temporary seal for a water hose or small air hose leak, with the labels from some of the plastic drink bottles. The label will come off, if you crush the bottle into itself. Then slip the label sleeve over the leaking water hose, or air hose and apply heat using a hair dryer. It will shrink to the shape of the hose giving it a temporary fix, if you cannot repair it right away.
