I have not tried it, But I have seen the glass frosting spray a lot. I think it would be a desirable option, since you still get good light through the glass. glass frosting spray

If you have to paint the window try putting the paint on the outside of the glass. This way the inside where you clean more will still be "smooth as glass" because it will still be glass. On the other hand there are partially opaque films that you can get that apply from the inside of the glass. They are plastic and clean easily. Plus they are intrinsically ...

Sounds like you pulled out some butterfly anchors instead of unscrewing them, or even large molly type. What I do in situations like this is to install a decorative BOARD behind the towel rack or toilet paper holder, on the surface of the drywall, which screws directly into studs. This can simply be a piece of 1X4 with routed or finished edges, or ...

Dont breath in that stuff. Look it up guys, it's bad for your health. Once you have it in you home forget it, it's there forever. only answer is to get it grinded off. Toss all your old cloths, sponges etc you use and get microfiber cloths. rags hold the mold you can bleach the hell out of it and it will come back again, again.

As already stated, this is a problem with the mould and you cannot really correct it. The only thing that i would try, is to chip away the existing silicon and cement around the corners of the ledge and then try to get something which you could use to pry the ledge upwards ever so slightly. What I would use is some expanding foam, you will be surprised ...

You could go the route of having no switches in the bathroom, and only a plug and switch upstairs Loft. Step 1: Get a standby plug adapter, which will shut off power to the TV when its in standby mode. this will reduce electrical risk, fire and save power. - the unit has an infra-red reset switch, so when it senses your remote IR beam, it will energise the ...

I am also remodeling our bathroom and have placed the on/off switch next to the light switch which is outside the bathroom door as you enter. I guess the other way would be to use a normal corded isolation switch mounted on the ceiling. Good luck ( I am also not a qualified electrician but do have a friendly one who checks what is done and would recommend ...

Faucet leakage: Over the time, the faucets wear out and start leaking. At first you may not notice the leakage, due to little water dripping. But if you ignore the issue, the leakage may increase a lot. That would mean a lot of water wastage. When you notice the leakage, check the aerator. It is the small screen at the end of the faucet. Loosen it and ...

You could sand down the floors, and refinish them with oil based stain and polyurethane. That should be enough protection to keep the floors from rotting. You could do what they did in the old days and put towels down around the tub and wipe up spills immediately. Standing water will leak through the cracks between the floorboards. You could also good clear ...

The vent should be going directly outside, not venting inside the attic near a screen. Also, the pipe should be covered in insulation to prevent the warm humid air from cooling down so much that the water vapour condenses and runs down the pipe into your bathroom. This might be damaging your ceiling drywall, which is a pain to repair. Extend the pipe ...

I just confirmed with inspector for my use case - with forced air (fan) I can route down to route through floor joists. Exit can be on side of house if a) more than 10' from a window and b) not in a walkway.

I don't think there is any restriction against an exhaust going downward. A slightly downward direction is standard in some installations, like when a soffit exhaust vent (common in extremely cold and snowy environments) is used with a fan box which sits above the ceiling joists.

They probably plumbed it with a solid PVC piping connection. I installed a free standing tub but the connection to the tub was too rigid. My solution was to use a Flexible PVC pipe. The instructions for the tub were not great, however a Google search found products made for this application. These products started around $65.00 up to $285.00 . I made mine ...

Clearly the restriction is left of the sink in your diagram. One more question you could consider is whether this is an installation deficiency (problem has always existed) or whether the drain was working properly at one time and the situation has become worse. I would suggest using a video inspection camera to be certain about the location of the ...

Well first you need to create a sealed backing for the clock or it will rust out in a month. So some plastic and caulk. Then you can basically use whatever you want to mount it - glue, silicone, velcro, double sided tape, suction cups....

I had the same situation. I used velcro mounting pads. They come in different shapes and sizes. You can cut them to fit. They will allow you to remove the clock when the battery needs to be changed.

You should be able to find a suitable self stick hook of some sort that can hold up the clock. With proper pre-cleaning of the smooth tile surface I would expect a good brand of self stick to stay adhered for a long time. ...
