First time retiling a bathroom and I think I screwed up. I have about
18" of tile I put in above my soaking tub. The Lowes guy gave me 1/4"
spacers for the tile. I have the tile up (not grouted yet) and I'm
thinking the spacing is too big. So...I think I want to remove the
tile, replace the cement board and start over using 1/8" spacers. Is
there any way to salvage these tiles?
Oh, it's _possible_, but probably not worth the effort unless they're
very expensive tile.
You can use a wire wheel on a grinder to remove the mastic if it has
hardened. If not yet hard, depends on what base it was (water or not)
as to appropriate solvent.
Of course, you'll probably have to redo the wall again, too, in order to
have a sufficiently flat and prepared surface to reinstall over...
