STEP 2: Measure __ Walls __ When tiling a wall, you'll want to establish a top line that is level. Few walls are truly plumb, so use a level to mark the top line. Establish its height so that you won't have to cut very thin tiles (or cut very thin shards from nearly full tiles) to come flush to the floor. Snap a top line on your walls, and then snap a center line, too. Be sure to lay out all the walls you plan to do before you begin tiling.
Vinegar, Borax and Ammonia __ When you have tough soap scum or dirt buildup on tile floors, you can return the shine by combining common household items to create a powerful cleaner. Reader's Digest suggests combining 1ǘ cup of white vinegar with 1ǘ cup of ammonia and 1ǚ cup of borax. Add 1 gallon of warm water to the ingredients and stir slightly to combine them well. Mop the tile floor with the cleaning solution, then rinse the floor well. Allow the floor to air_dry completely.
