How can I control hot water to a bathroom faucet (tap)? [more inside]
We have very hard water and it has a tendancy to stain stuff pretty quickly. The area of the sink and the tub just below the faucets are an endless battle. The only thing that has ever been able to get those stains out has been bleach, but now the bleach has only made things worse because they stain even MORE quickly. It really looks terrible. Help me fix my sink and tub so that we don't look like Grubby McSlobbersons. [more inside]
The counter for my bathroom sink sits below the level of the counter (picture
). When the water is turned off, or the soap dispenser used, water dripping off hands gets all over the counter and eventually runs to the edge of the counter onto the floor. I want this to stop.
The fix for the faucet is to find a new faucet. But I'm not sure what to do about the soap dispenser. [more inside]
What kind of water heater can I put under our bathroom sink to heat the water until the house water heater takes over? [more inside]
I have about a week or so to find some of this carpet.
Yep, it is that stuff that's everywhere. You probably even have 3 rolls of it under your house as we speak. It's almost safe to say, at some point, you really did have like 3 rolls of it - what did you do with them?!! Where should I inquire about getting a scrap of it?? (30cm/12inch -sq.) Demolition.. people? The dump? Is there like an Elephants Graveyard but for carpet??
Also.. I need a hand with repairing melamine/laminex?? ( Bathroom vanity
and a cupboard
). And (omg!) this blind
( /s)... [more inside]
When I turn the cold water tap, the faucets in my upstairs bathroom are putting out room temperature water. How do I fix this? [more inside]
Why would a sink in a public bathroom which had an automatic water sensor suddenly turn on even though there was no one nearby? [more inside]
My family has mold growing on the lower portions of inside of the walls in the central area of our 15-year-old home. We're getting the house sprayed, but the price the contractor gave us seems extremely high. What should I expect? [more inside]
We've got a wooden shelf in the bathroom in our (rented) apartment. We've been here two years now and it's gone very pale, and is stained a funny colour where water has landed on it. What should we do to return it to its former glory? (pretty much cleaning/DIY noobs, to be honest...)
