In today’s show we tackle smelly bathrooms, thin-set questions and discuss what we we think is the best tile cutter money can buy. Jan’s bathrooms are having a sewer gas issue. What could be the problem? We share how to get rid of this sewer gas in the show. Here’s the video I made on how to clean stinky sink drains https://youtu.be/xiuKTOkbF_o Jerry’s question had to do with thin-set, how to become familiar with it and keep it from drying out.
