Green cleaners don't work very well on chrome bumpers......

For cheramic stove tops ashes and soda work great and are the greenest thing you can use.

6 Ingredients for a clean (green) home:
1. Baking soda: Acts as a scrub to remove hard water stains; polishes metal; deodorizes pretty much anything it touches (try stashing some in the fridge).

2. Borax
: Mixed with three parts water, it makes a paste for cleaning carpet stains; mixed with ¼ part lemon juice, it cleans stainless steel and porcelain. (Note: although borax is a natural substance, you still shouldn’t eat it—and neither should your kids or pets.)

3. Lemon:
Deodorizes and cuts grease on counter tops; rubbed on cutting boards, it bleaches stains and disinfects; combined with baking soda, it removes stains from plastic food storage containers.

4. Salt:
Another natural scrubber—sprinkle it on cookware or oven surfaces, then rub; add citrus juice to turn it into an effective rust remover.

5. White vinegar: Deodorizes and disinfects; combine with water (and a little liquid soap—I know, it feels like cheating) to clean windows, mirrors, and floors; use at full strength in a spray bottle to fight mold and mildew.

6. Olive Oil: Mix two parts oil with one part lemon juice and use as a natural wood polish. (Save the really good stuff for dinner.)

My wife and I were thinking about upgrading and get more modern, stainless steel covered appliances in our kitchen.

But then we realized: Where would we put the pictures, paintings, scrawlings of our grand-children, now that we covered all our walls, if we can not attach them on our fridge with a magnet?

You must have experience with lego too eh? I swear some podiatrist developed lego to increase business, lol.

Oh yes Lego and other assorted bits and pieces that you can step on the wrong way a be limping for the next half an hour. I guess I have to take some responsibility since I picked the tile over Congolium lino. One thing about a lino floor is that you can ocassionally drop a glass on it and the glass will survive, The terracotta is absolutely unforgiving...If you drop a glass or a dish on it, it is history:smile:

Maybe it's to do with height Juan. I dropped a glass on mine fully expecting a major explosion of glass but it survived! Being only 5 feet tall and holding the glass just above my waist may have made the tile more forgiving of the short drop. Who knows why it didn't break. I am not very forgiving of lego! Every piece I step on hits the trash! The kids don't bring it over anymore but I think it's more that they have outgrown it. They never saw me toss it and I never said anything.
