Stop Worrying About How To Pick Your Bathroom Tiles


If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom or really think that it is time to change your bathroom tiles, this blog post is for you, as we will tell you tips for picking the best tiles for your bathroom and you can be certain that they will help you to make a smart decision. 


Tip #1


If your bathroom design has curves in it, you should pick smaller size tiles for these sections.  If your shower or bathtub has a bench, it will probably need smaller tiles, as these will fit better and will make your design look better too. 


Tip #2


Touch the bathroom tiles that you like in the store and think about how they will feel when you touch them with bare feet or right after taking a comforting shower.  If you are planning to sit on your bathroom bench, it will also be a good idea to have an edge and soft tiles. 


Tip #3


If you are going to be choosing some mosaic tiles, you should be very careful and make sure they are glued perfectly to the floors and walls. If not, it could cause problems, in a short period of time. 


Tip #4


Small colored glass, allows you more options and easier installation, than large clear glass.  Most small colored glass, can be fitted easily in any bathroom, while larger clear glass tiles, may need to be made out specifically for your case and this could raise the cost of remodeling your bathroom a lot. 


Tip #5


Use a different colored set of tiles to build a wall, which will make your bathroom design nice to look at.  This is a simple way to make your bathroom look a lot different and there are plenty of colored tiles to choose from. 


Tip #6


Your shower’s access should be simple and safe as well.  By considering universal bathroom designs, as well as some shower made tiles, you will be able to accomplish this. 


Tip #7


If you are like most people and do not enjoy cleaning your bathroom or shower, you should pick some glass panels or large slabs, as these are much easier to clean and will make your life easier too. 


So follow some of these tips when picking your bathroom tiles and you will see great results!

How To Keep Your Garbage Disposal Clean

Keeping Your Garbage Disposal Clean, With Salt & Ice

We all know how important garbage disposals are for modern life and keeping them clean and odor free is one of the things we need to worry about.   In this article, you will learn how to keep your garbage disposal clean, with salt and some ice.  This is a very simple strategy, which will help you to keep your kitchen in excellent condition and prevent some health hazards as well. 

Many people believe that inserting some pieces of lemon into their garbage disposal is an excellent way to keep it clean, but the truth is very different, as this will not really cleanse your garbage disposal, but only make it smell nice. If you really want to get rid of bacteria and germs in your garbage disposal, you should clean it with some salt, some ice and some cold water.  This will get rid of mostly everything and it will also help to keep your garbage disposal odor-free and smelling nicely.

While you could also fill in the sink with water and then just flush it down your garbage disposal, you would still not get it sufficiently cleaned, which is why adding some ice and salt, will do the trick.      

You should also remember not to drop some eggshells, peels or hard things down your garbage disposal, as these can really affect the cleanliness of your kitchen and could in fact harm your garbage disposal system in the long run.  These sorts of things can also stink up your kitchen and you would need to clean your garbage disposal a lot more often.

It is also important to remember, that using hot water instead of cold water to clean your garbage disposal is a bad idea, as grease and other such substances, will clog up further into your drains, if you use hot water.  Cold water will not cause this and salt will also help to dissolve grease and other substances, which means that your pipes will not clog up and that you will have a very useful garbage disposal system.

According to some people, once you have cleaned your garbage disposal with some cold water, some salt and some ice, you can in fact use some lemon juice, to make it smell nice and this will not affect the cleanliness of your garbage disposal, as it has already been cleaned and most of the grease has been flushed down.  If you follow some of these tips, you will be able to keep your garbage disposal a lot cleaner and you will also have a kitchen that smells very nice.
