Keep cedarís rich color alive in outdoor settings
Question: We have a cedar table and chairs that stay outside all the time. They are in the shade for the morning, but in direct sunlight during the evening. At one time the table had the rich red color of cedar, but is now turning white. The only time it returns to its original color is when itís wet. What can I do to bring back the color and keep it?

Clean grout with a silicone sealer
Question: I thought I heard you say two different times that you could cover a grouted tile floor with a couple of coats of polyurethane after cleaning and it would stay like new. All the tile stores say no, and want to sell me other products. Is it just the grout you cover?
