Re: Spring- Yeah!

We have saltillo Mexican tiles throughout the house--an addition when we bought the house. Talk about low maintinance. Only been sorry that we didn't have the tile guy install saltillo baseboards, too.

Chris, unlike Ceres, I both cook with cast iron utensils and
love my tile floors in the kitchen, 2 baths and laundry room.
One tile is slightly cracked after 16 years of use, but you
have to look close to find the crack.  The kitchen counters
are tile, too - 8" square cream-colored tiles.  They clean
up easily and beautifully, and so far have shown no wear

There is oak flooring throughout the rest of the house, and
I like it, but it is a pain to keep looking good.
As for cast iron utensils, I use them more and more - skillets
of various sizes and a large pot.  I much prefer them to the
other various kinds of pots I have.  Hang in there.

Chris, it does not take something as big as the skillet to break the tile.
I hate my ceramic tile in my kitchen, hallway, (2) bath and laundry room and
hope to replace it, hopefully, this summer. What a major job to replace! I
do like the tile in my garden room, however. I want to check out the bamboo
