    The latch has been fixed. Once you open up the lock cartridge it is a mechanical puzzle. It only needed a spring which we found at the local hardware store for $1.28. While Hubby was in the lock cartridge, he investigated the locking mechanism which is a 1915 dead blot system not lock and key...

    Not the accent ones, but your bath/shower towels? Are they all one color or do you have a mix of several colors? All mine are different colors and I would really like it better if all of them were the same color or maybe just two different colors. My walls are white and yellow so I was...

    I'm not sure what it is about soap in my house, but my family are fiends. I used to get the kids body wash, but between the three of them they go through one of those Suave 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 bottles a week!!!!!! I get it, they like bubbles....and I know the 2 bucks for the soap shouldn't be a...

    My bathroom is tiled from floor to ceiling so I can't put up any pictures or anything. The counter is one piece, white, and just big enough to put the toothbrushes & towel on, no room for any decorative items. I can't put up a towel rack because of the tile, so there is just a big blank wall...

    We are remodeling our very outdated, very small, very falling-apart master bathroom. It's only 5 by 6. It has a blue tub, blue toilet and small sink with mirrored cabinet above. Everything is going! I want a tub (nothing fancy, just a tub to soak in) with a ceramic tile surround, a toilet...

    And do you like it? My main bath is a colour called "Sagey" (behr), which is a sage green. I wasn't happy when I finished it but I found curtains with a little flower that matched perfectly so I left it. The colour has always reminded me of a 1960's toilet. (Remember when no one had white...

    Share your best and easiest cleaning tips for bathrooms. I scrub my vinyl tub with dish soap and one of those bath scrubbers that always come in gift baskets, works better than any specialty cleaner I've tried.

    ~ This morning while in the shower rinsing the shampoo out of my hair I heard a wet smack sound down around my feet. I looked down to discover that one of the tiles had fallen off the wall! I then looked at the wall and a bunch of them are starting to pop out on the edges. We knew it was going...

    Let me just start by saying ever since I moved into my BF apt that I've been looking for a magazine/book holder for the bathroom. We've collected a stack of magazines and these "Our town" papers (local FREE magazine with events, jokes, stories etc). All the ones I've found were either too costly...

    Okay, so onto the next color question :crackup: When we moved in, I painted our full bath an apricot color, thinking it would be cool and refreshing. Truth? It completely washes us out in the mirror and is not particularly attractive to look at. So, I'm wondering, what color would you...

    We have hard water and it leaves this orange stuff in the shower stall, tub and toilet. I hate cleaning it. The only thing I can get to take it off is The Works. I don't like using it because of the ingredients are toxic. Is there anything else I can use thats safer? Does anyone have a homemade...

    I thought I'd just describe my bathroom, feel free to comment! It's 6 x 8 ft. Against the 6ft back wall is an in-built bath with handheld shower. It has a wall-to-wall shower curtain (Ikea, € 1.50). On the bath rim: expensive shampoo and conditioner (for me, once a week) - half price after...

    I need to replace the faucet for our bathroom sink. It's one of those cheap ones with one plastic knob that goes up and down for on/off and side to side for hot/cold. It leaks non-stop. I don't think a washer will fix it because it isn't just dripping, the knob itself seems to be broken as...
