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.)
How to Make Ceramic Tile Shine: Maybe it's human nature, but many people can't quite believe that anything can be cleaned with water alone.

But your ship has come in; whether it serves as your new floor or countertop, ceramic tile is incredibly simple to clean and shine.
