How Removing Stains with a Poultice?

Mix paper towel pieces, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide in a bowl. Rip up a couple sheets of paper towels and place them in a bowl. Note that the amount of paper towel you use depends on the size of the stain you’re trying to remove. Pour a few drops of ammonia in the bowl, and enough hydrogen peroxide to completely soak the paper towel chunks.

When handling ammonia, you should wear gloves to avoid skin irritation and burns. If the stain you’re trying to remove is quite large, you may want to fold up a paper towel instead. Attempt this method if you’re dealing with old or tenacious stains that can’t be removed with more conventional means.

Place the paper towel poultice over the stain. Pick the saturated chunks out of the bowl and place them over the stain. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, or the hydrogen peroxide and ammonia might leak out over your marble tiles. If you’re dealing with a vertical surface, the paper towel chunks should be wet enough to just stick on.

Seal the poultice with plastic wrap. Stretch a length of plastic wrap over the poultice and stain. Apply pressure to its sides, so that it completely seals the poultice, then use clear adhesive tape to secure the plastic wrap. Use a toothpick to poke a couple of holes in the plastic wrap to allow airflow. Let the poultice sit for two to three days.

Remove the plastic wrap and wash the area with warm water. You should be able to lift the plastic wrap easily with just your fingers. Pick the paper towel poultice off of your surface and throw the chunks away. Then, dampen a cloth with warm water and wipe the area clean. After washing the marble tiles, use a dry cloth or paper towel to dry the area.

How cutting a tile with the tile nippers?

Smooth the cuts with a tile file and wipe the tiles down. Once you’ve finished cutting a tile with the tile nippers, use the tile file to sand down any rough edges along the cut. Follow this up with a damp cloth to wipe away any dust. After this, dry-fit the tile to make sure it rests snugly along the toilet base. If it doesn’t, keep nipping, or get a new tile and start again if necessary.

When all the tiles have been cut, filed, cleaned, and dry-fitted, you can move on to setting them in place permanently. Trace the outline of the flange onto the sheet(s) of paper. First, run your finger along the outline of the flange to create a crease in the paper. Then, lift up each sheet and use a pencil to trace an outline that’s slightly—about 0.25 in (0.64 cm)— larger than the creased outline.

The tracing doesn’t need to be perfect, because the toilet will rest on top of the flange and the cut tile(s) and hide any minor errors. If you have a removable flange and want it to rest on top of the tiles instead of on the subfloor, make the pencil tracing about 0.5 in (1.3 cm) smaller than your crease outline instead. That way, the outer rim of the flange will rest on the surrounding tiles.

Cut out the flange circle and trace it onto the tile(s). Use scissors to cut the sheet(s) of paper to the correct shape, then tape the sheets onto the tiles. Transfer the cut lines onto the tiles with a pencil, then remove the paper. Don’t discard the paper yet—you’ll need it again if you break a tile while cutting it!

Don’t try to cut more than about 0.125 in (0.32 cm) deep with any single pass, or the tile will probably break in a random spot and you’ll have to start over. Be as precise as possible but remember that the circle you cut doesn’t need to be perfect. The actual cut line will be covered by the toilet base.

The difference between the polished tile and rustic tile

What is the polished tile? Polished floor tiles is a bright tile made from the surface of the whole tile’s body. Hard and wear-resistant. It is suitable for use in most indoor spaces, toilets and kitchens. Due to the factors of aesthetics, the ceramic tile market has always been dominated by large and large size polished tiles. It is not only a luxurious atmosphere, magnificent, large space visual effect, to a certain extent, is also a representative of identity and image.

What is the rustic tile? The rustic wood tile is not the product developed by our country, it is imported from abroad. Stone flooring evolved from colored glazed tiles, essentially glazed porcelain tiles. The only difference is that in the process of firing, the technical requirements of rustic tiles are relatively high. After the press of thousands of tons of hydraulic press, it has been sintered at high temperature by 1000 degrees. It has high strength and very strong wear resistance. The carefully developed antique brick has the characteristics of waterproof, anti slip and corrosion resistance.

The difference between the ceramic polish and the rustic tile:

1.The hardness and water absorption of the polished stone tiles are high, and the surface hardness is as high as 7. Because the rustic tile has a glaze (vitreous body) on its surface, its hardness is only less than 6. The polished tiles are porcelain tile flooring with high vitrification, less than 0.5% water absorption and 38Mpa (1Mpa=1.02kg/cm2) flexural strength, and most of the rustic tiles are stoneware, the water absorption rate is high, and the strength of the brick is only about 28Mpa.

2.The color pattern of the paving tile is relatively simple. It looks more plain, neat, bright and other visual effects. The features of the rustic tiles appear to be visually diverse, which can form a variety of color patterns with an antique flavor. In addition, rustic tiles are used for paving with many kinds of accessories, so there are main tiles and accessories.

3.Antiskiding, antifouling polished tiles in the production of the concave and convex holes, these pores will hide dirt, resulting in the surface easily infiltrated into the pollutants, and even some tea poured on the polished porcelain are weak. The rustic tile is fired after the surface is glazed, so that the polished tiles are more imitated. From the skidding, the polished tiles can only be laid on most indoor spaces outside the bathroom and the kitchen, and the rustic tiles paving scope is more comprehensive, thus the anti skid ability is better. the surface of rustic tiles is matte, which is less polluting than light polished tiles, and is more environmentally friendly.

4. The price is different due to the manufacturing process and requirements of the two tiles. The price of polished tile is much cheaper than that of rustic tile.
5. The size of polished tiles is larger, the largest is 2400X1200, and the rustic tile is smaller, and the largest is 600X600. Moreover, the trend of rustic tile has been developing towards small specifications recently.
6. Because of the simple color of polished tiles, the placement process is easier. Also between polished tiles should be laid as far as possible without cutting. Because of the needs of surface decoration such as the pattern and pattern of rustic tiles, the technology of rustic tiles is rather complicated. There is also the design of the designer to carry out the actual construction. Moreover, the paving of the rustic tiles requires a certain gap, and it is not allowed to cut and paste at will.
