wet tile

Removed all 6x6 glazed tile from walls and soaked in water and tsp to remove mastic. Thought they were dry but when left back side down on floor, the floor drew moisture. How can and how long to dry before putting back on walls? Live in Texas-it's hot. Thanks for help.

wet tiles!


I would set all tiles on edge and let them dry out for at least 3 days. I would assume that they would then be suitable for installation at that time.

I have done it almost as soon as they were clean but it is better allowing them to dry and obtain good adhesion.

Good Luck!
