Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Jan. 4 broadcast:

Keith’s 1960s home has a cast-iron tub that he wants to remove from the bathroom without damaging any walls.

The easiest way to remove this tub is to destroy it, so we tell Keith to get some eye protection and a heavy blanket because he’ll be doing a lot of demolition.

Then he should cover the tub with the blanket before swinging a hammer to prevent shards from flying around the room.

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer!
