by Andrew Veazey

Every one feel select and fix the ceramic tiles are easy but ceramic tile installation is not as easy as it looks. Here are some tips on what to prepare for when planning your ceramic tile installation.

  • First you need to know the about your floor such as concrete floor, plywood sub floor and existing ceramic tile floor. A concrete floor has to be cleaned out first before tiling and all the cracks and holes need to be repaired and filled in before your ceramic tile installation can start. In case it is have a lot of large cracks, particularly ones that run up the wall, discuss with a specialist before your start working on your tiling project. Plywood sub floor is often used for second level floors. So your plywood sub floor has to be structurally sound and competent of supporting your ceramic tile installation otherwise it would be unwise to do a ceramic tile installation on wood. Having an existing tiled floor would mostly require a remodeling job.

In my Miami apartment I always take care about my beddings and comforters. Now I am going to share a valuable piece of information about how to increase the life period of your comforters. If you are a wash and wear person in many facets of your life, then you may do well to consider having a comforter of the cotton or polyester variety. Because many cotton items, polyester and other synthetic blends are good to traditional washing and drying methods at home and Sheets and pillowcases are typically easy to wash and dry.

Always try to use only mild detergent when you wash the bedding at your home and dry them on a gentle cycle with low heat. But most of the bed comforters are generally heavy items so home washing machines and dryers are not equipped to handle. So many in the bedding care industry recommend either pursuing dry cleaning or going to a coin operated laundry to wash and dry those items. Last tip for the care of your bedding products is to read and save the care instructions for your bedding sets. Keep the care instruction list and preserve it in a place that you will remember and which will be easy to locate when it is time to care for your items.

by Andrew Veazey

Microwave is a great tool we have for cooking and is a great time saver. The biggest advantage is microwave functions based on the time set. Using microwave is more simper with using the following tips.

Only non-metal utensils are to be used in a microwave. Vegetables and meat should be cut in uniform size for thorough cooking. Avoid using foil-lined paper products, paper towels like nylon or synthetic instead use paper plates, cups and napkins in microwave.

Discard the wire twist tie available with plastic bags or cooking bags if you are using them in microwave for cooking. Stir food and turn dishes periodically while it is in microwave and it helps for cooking fully and evenly.

Place even pieces for cooking especially remove the large bones from meat before cooking it in microwave because it prevents the proper cooking of remaining pieces. This also helps in peeling the vegetables, to get more juice from citrus fruits and many more.
