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.
How to Install Ceramic Tile __ Installing ceramic tile is easy with modern fast_setting mastics, sealants, and grout. Whatever style or size you choose to install, the principles are the same. Before you begin, you'll need a hammer, chalk line, level, saber saw with carbide blade (helpful but not necessary), rubber gloves, tile mastic, tile grout sealer, tiles, edging cap and two outside corner edge caps for ceramic tile, and a paint stirring stick or old toothbrush to use for forcing grout deeply into the tile joints. You can also rent or buy a grooved trowel, tile nippers, tile cutter, and rubber squeegee. Inspect the walls. They must be smooth and free of loose plaster, dust, or peeling paint. Read the mastic instructions; on new plaster or unfinished drywall, a primer may be necessary.
