  3. I just replaced my carpet with laminate flooring. Now my tile walkin sets about an inch higher than my flooring. I have a subfloor so when we did the tile walkin we put one quarter inch hardyback underneath tile. what can I to kind of level tile with laminate. I know t-moulding might work but is there any other way without that big moulding there . thanks .

  4. Like you for telling us how to disinfect wood cutting boards!! I am wondering if you can use the same way for plastic or other kinds of materials? Almost all of our cutting boards are
    Plastic. I clean them as much as I can but they still look dirty. I s there anyway to use on them so they are clean and look a lot better?
