Marble poultice

posted by: jaedwards on 05.01.2008 at 02:03 am in Kitchens Forum

I'm trying to get a stain out of my 50+ year old marble window sill. I know I saw the recipe here a while ago and I did a search, but can't find it. Did anyone save it? I did try letting corn starch sit on it overnight. It is polished carrara if it matters. Thanks!

Cleaning oven door between glass

posted by: SouthboundTrain on 09.17.2004 at 11:00 pm in Cleaning Tips Forum

Help, please. I have a standard GE oven and somehow dark streaks of something have gotten inside the oven door, it looks like it's sort of between glass panels. Nothing in the oven directions speak to this. Has anyone else had this problem? It looks like I can unbolt the inside glass panel but I'm concerned about the insulation looking strip. Any advice would be most welcome. Oh, the self cleaning cycle has no affect. Thanks.

Outlet and cover in the island: What color?

posted by: hungryheart on 02.24.2011 at 08:37 pm in Kitchens Forum

I'm trying to figure out what to do about the outlet in my island which will be quite visible. My cabinets are cherry pecan and all of my outlets/switches are white. My first inclination was to put a brown outlet and cover into the island to try to blend it in with the wood, though of course it won't really blend. Then I thought that perhaps I should do a black outlet and a stainless steel cover. Or should it just be white to match the others? Now I'm thinking that I'm just really obsessing! Thoughts?

RE: Herringbone backsplash ideas (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: bill_vincent on 01.20.2010 at 07:13 pm in Kitchens Forum

I still would like to somehow incorporate some tantrum crushed glass somehow, either by liners or some tiles worked into the actual herringbone pattern. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your time

This is easy. Do a row of subway tiles laid straight across at the counter. Do a row of glass, and then take a measurement. Whatever that measurement is, draw a line that far down from your upper cabinets. Do your herringbone between what you've got so far, and that line, and then reverse it-- a row of glass, and then the straight row of subway tile.

No problem! :-) Then the straight rows would set off the herringbone, and vice versa.
