How to Repair Scratches on Ceramic Tile: In high_traffic areas, such as your bathroom or kitchen, ceramic tile takes lots of abuse. Ceramic floors have it harder than the walls __ they're walked over and played on, so scratches show up fast. Dirt and debris gets into these scratches, making the tile look perpetually grimy even after you've cleaned it. If the scratches aren't too deep, buffing the tile with a gentle abrasive is usually enough to get rid of them.
STEP 5: Adhering Tiles __ If you are using tile, chances are that it's in a setting where moisture is a given__kitchen, bath, entryway and so on. Make sure you use a waterproof adhesive. You can use a premixed adhesive or a mortar, but if you choose the latter, make sure it's a thin_set variety. (Thick_bed mortars require some practice and skill at smoothing to get the tiles to sit flat, and the additional mortar isn't necessary for a watertight finish.)
