Tiling Tip #2 - Holding Up Tile for Marking
After tiling the entire laundry room floor with ceramic tiles, I came upon the last row, which wouldn't fit just right. It meant I had to make some straight line cuts.
If you didn't know already, to mark a cut, you place the tile you want to cut squarely on top of an adjacent tile. You take another tile, place it over the tile you want to cut, but rest it against the wall (and spacers). The edge of the tile is where you mark the cut line.
Yet, for a few minutes, I couldn't figure out how to hold onto the top-most tile. It just wouldn't sit there in the air by itself. Finally, after a few minutes of thought, I finally figured out that I could cut a piece of tile in half and place the two halves under the tile to levitate it (see photo below). Couldn't understand why it took me so long to figure that out.
