Different snap cutters have different means of snapping tile. Some have a heel at the rear of the lever that has the cutting wheel at its toe; with others, the reverse is true. Whatever the design of your cutter, use the surface to apply pressure to the score line. In combination with a bead built into the base of the cutter, the pressure will cause the tile to snap in half. A little patience, some practice, a score and a snap, and you're a tile cutter.
Tip: Use tile polish to bring the shine back to dull ceramics. Put padding underneath heavy objects before sliding them across a tiled floor. Heavy items, such as furniture, can easily scratch tile. If scratches get down to the white part of the tile, you cannot buff them out. Ceramic tile sealers do not protect the tile from scratches; they only guard against stains.
