Attack soap scum and hard water stains on ceramic tile in the shower and grease stains on kitchen backsplashes with care. Many all_purpose, commercial cleaning products are safe on ceramic tile, as long as they don't contain ammonia, acid, vinegar or chlorine. Abrasive cleansers also should not be used on ceramic tile. Many products that are advertised to be "green" should be safe, but always check the label to be sure. Buff ceramic tile that appears to be cloudy or foggy with a clean, dry cloth. Often, what appears to be dirt on ceramic is really just condensation, so buff it away to restore the shine.
Use the knife to cut away the extra bits of clay. You can also cut the clay tiles at angles or along curves. If you aren't sure about creating even curves, use a large, slightly_sharp object like a metal bowl. Press the metal bowl upon the rolled_out clay to get even_sized, circular tiles.
