Hi there fatarm you can use any mould resistant white silicone just scrape out the old stuff, then make sure it's dry then here's a pro tip fill the bath then apply the silicone :RpS_wink:Some people use a credit card to form a best bead of silicone but I haven't got one so I use my bell ringer :RpS_thumbup:

Hi I want to put mirror tiles on my ceiling so I can watch my missus when she's on top as it were. What's the best adhesive to make sure they don't fall off when she starts bucking like a mule??? Thanks

Always best to centre wall and then centre the tiles or put one either side o the centre line then work out so your cuts are always on the corners .. Make sure there not slither cuts in the corner

Hi I've been told to fix a baton to the wall to use as a guide for my tiles?? Does it matter if the baton is wholemeal or white??

Should you use tile spacers in between individual mosaic tilesI've heard conflicting advice in regards to this. Thanks♿

Yeh face down preferably...helps the silicunt cure better..apparently:RpS_thumbup:
and throwing the hair dryer in the bath with her helps it dry even quicker... apparently :RpS_thumbup:

when washing off grout after how do you get a neat finish, is there a type of pointing trowel for getting good grout lines.
 
#25
apply the grout, when its pulled in , wipe over with a spong, to finish and get the neat lines.. when you have wiped the excess grout off the tiles. run the sponge across the grout lines.....ie.. do all the verticals, then the horizontals..., after an hour or so, wipe down with a soft towel to remove the grout haze...
Would working the grout with a sponge in diagonals work also.

Done quite a bit of grouting when I was younger and always used standard car sponges with a couple of clean buckets of water as that's what I was given. Still have a hatred of black tiles with slate effect on them! Intrigued by those wash boys and the proper sponges seen them used a few times do they make that much of a difference?
