Reusing Ceramic Tile
I need to re-set about a dozen 3 inch x 3 inch tiles on a shower floor (after some careful preparation and sanding out old thinset etc.). Can I reuse the old tiles, if I can get most of the old thinset off? I am concerned that since there will always be some residu of the old thinset on the tiles, it might not adhere over the long term. Is this concern justified?
To purchase tiles to match these tiles , I would have to purchase an entire box (10-11 sq. feet).
I would appreciate any views.
