Product Spotlight: Caprice

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Ceramic / Porcelain Tile, Kitchen and Bath, Product Education, Tile

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 4.06.27 PMAre you looking for an accent or backsplash inspiration?

Caprice by Dal-Tile is our product spotlight this week.  It’s a glass tile product.

This product would look great used as a backsplash in a bathroom (like the image to the left) or in the kitchen.  You could also put it in the shower as an accent strip.  Where do you envision this in your home?

Caprice comes in eight different colors! Which out of the eight colors pictured below is your favorite?  Do you like the lighter or darker options?  The lighter colors would look great against a dark counter top for contrast and vice versa for the darker colors against a light counter top.  If you want to bring in a subtle color into the room, Whisper Green might just be the choice for you.

Take a closer look at our website here.

Reader Question: Laundry

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Hints and Advice, Reader Question

18892590_SMy laundry smells less than fresh. Why?

Smells in your washer and dryer can be transferred onto the clothes that you are washing. You can get rid of those odors and keep your laundry smelling clean and fresh by following these tips:

Use hot water – hot water kills those odor causing bacteria. While you may be washing most of your clothes in cold water to save money, you should wash at least 2 loads a month in a hot cycle.

Don’t use fabric softener in the washing machine – although fabric softener will make your clothes smell good in the short run, over time it can build up in your machine. The residue from fabric softener is a breeding ground for mildew.

Let your washing machine air dry – if you are not going to use your washing machine for a day or two, keep the door open. Even though your machine might be empty of wet clothes, there is still a significant chance that there is water under the basin. By keeping the door open you let the basin air dry and stay free of musty and mildew odors.

Clean your washer – that’s right, you have to clean it. Once a month run an empty machine on a hot cycle using two cups of vinegar. This will kill any bacteria that have been developing.

Clean the lint trap on your dryer – after every load remove lint from the lint trap. Once a month clean the lint trap in hot, soapy water. Use the hose on your vacuum to clean any lint that may remain in the dryer. Excess lint can become damp and cause yucky smells.

Wipe down the inside of your dryer – mix one cup of bleach with a gallon of hot water. Using a clean cloth, gently wipe down the inside of your dryer.

Use vinegar – dampen a few towels with vinegar and run them in the dryer. This will eliminate any nasty odors that are starting to develop.

Paul C.SpiewakIt is with deep regret that we announce the passing of our business partner and co-founder, Paul Spiewak Sr. on December 24th. He was beloved and an integral part of our business success and growth over the years and will be missed.  He is survived by his wife Dorothy and four children – Paul Spiewak Jr. Kathleen Boyle, Debbie Beyer & Phillip Spiewak as well as numerous grand-children & great-grand children.

Paul partnered with Frank Parks Sr. in 1947 to start Century Tile & Supply Company.  Over the years, both grew the business from a little store on Austin Avenue in Chicago to twelve locations covering the Chicago-land area and becoming one of the largest floor covering retailers & distributors in the Mid-West.

Paul’s guidance and enthusiasm will be sorely missed and we are all thankful for opportunity that we had to work and learn from him.
