Question Cleaning old adhesive off floor tile

Hello!
I need to remove old adhesive from two ceramic floor tiles so they may be reset. I cannot match the tiles which have come loose, so it is important that these can be reused.

Is there a special tool to use for this or should I be looking to use some type of sander or grinder?

Any suggestions are appreciated. K

You can try a sander with 60-80 grit paper. If that don't work, you can carefully grind it off with an angle grinder. Where a dust mask and safety glasses. Keep the tile firmy on a flat surface so you don't accidently break the tile.

I will try the sand paper this weekend.
What attachment would I use with the angle grinder?

Thank you!
