"Pictures, mirrors and shelves topple from the walls."
-- Elveira Elkins (DP3)
Making it Stick is a letter appearing on the Problem Page of the Daily Prophet (DP3).
Elveira Elkins wrote to say that she is unable to get the Fixing Charms she attempts to cast to actually work properly. Household magic expert and author Zamira Gulch gave her both magical and non-magical advice (DP3).
Ms Gulch's suggestion is that the letter writer uses the handy Muggle product called "nails" if she continues to have trouble making her Charms work....
Although the date printed on the third Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP3) is 1 June 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
