Tips: Wipe the ceramic tile in your shower with lemon oil twice a month to keep pesky water stains and mildew at bay. Protect your ceramic floors by placing throw rugs in high_dirt areas, such as by doors, in hallways and in front of kitchen work areas. Place felt pads under any hardwood or metal furniture that comes into contact with your ceramic floor.
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.
