...From our very own Bill Vincent...

See the Tile FAQs


How to clean ceramic tile floors

Hot water should be all you need for most of the time. The times you want a grease-cutter, use Oxyclean.

Vinegar-- it'll do a good job, but the way it cleans is that it eats away at the grout, little by little. It'll literally burn the grout away over time. The oxyclean will do just as good a job, but without hurting the grout.

Thread: Best website I've found yet to view granite

Posted by remodelfla on Fri, Mar 20, 09 at 22:58

While doing a search I came across marble.com website. They have some amazing links including galleries with real life kitchens with a huge variety of stones installed. I didn't even get to the bathroom side yet. The pictures are beautiful. They also seem to have 3D and 2D interactive capacities which I haven't yet played with either. Will have to wait for a rainy Sunday when I want something to do.

Anyway... I've haven't seen one this good yet and thought others might be able to utilize it. ENJOY!
