How to revive quarry tiles from the early 1900s...
THE old quarry tiles in the passage of my 1910 house look tired. How do I revive them?
Mrs M Evans TRY Lithofin KF Tile Restorer. I used it on tiles laid in 1890 in an old back entrance. I washed and dried the tiles first then applied the restorer and repeated this to erase spots of a tar-like substance on them. Lithofin also does KF Tile Polish which really lifts dull tiles. THE concrete base of my garage extends 8ft outwards, open to all weathers, and the surface is becoming potholed. How can I fill them, taking into account the doors open outwards, just clearing the surface?
D Palethorpe MIX a strong mortar and fill the holes level after first cleaning all loose concrete out of them. Then coat the base with an anti-slip floor paint to protect it. Your other options are to take 80mm off the base and then relay the top layer or put non-slip porcelain tiles on top. IS it possible to buy spray paint for use on a couple of rust spots in my microwave? Sandy Protree YES. I have done it on fridges, freezers and washing machines. Use a wee bit of sandpaper to remove the rust and get the immediate surface smooth. Then apply the paint. I found that did the job well
