Replacing outdated outletsOur new house has the old beige electrical outlets from the 80’s still. I bought the 0.22 cent white covers thinking I could use them for replacing outdated outlets . But they’re still pretty ugly. I then spent hours searching blogs for tutorials on re-wiring them to new white outlets.
