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.
STEP 4: Cutting the tile __ The first step in cutting tile is measuring the size of the tile you wish to cut and transferring the dimensions to the glazed surface of the tile via felt_tip marker. Position the tile on the tile cutter, aligning the center line of the cutter with the axis on which the tile is to be cut. To keep it square, the top of the tile should be held flush to the fence at the top of the cutter. Then, using the lever to which the cutting wheel is attached, draw the cutter across the surface of the tile, exerting a firm, even pressure. Make only one pass with the cutter. Finally, snap the tile.
