STEP 2: Measure __ Walls __ When tiling a wall, you'll want to establish a top line that is level. Few walls are truly plumb, so use a level to mark the top line. Establish its height so that you won't have to cut very thin tiles (or cut very thin shards from nearly full tiles) to come flush to the floor. Snap a top line on your walls, and then snap a center line, too. Be sure to lay out all the walls you plan to do before you begin tiling.
Combine 2 gallons of warm water with 1ǚ cup liquid Castile soap in a bucket. Wet a sponge with the solution, and then wipe the scratched tile gently to remove any dirt and debris. Rinse with clean water and let dry. Dampen a cloth with scouring powder paste. Rub the paste into the scratched tile with small, circular motions.
