I have a ceramic floor in my bathroom. The previous owner installed a vinyl floor over it. I would like to remove the vinyl and restore the ceramic. How do I get all the adhesive off the tile?

Hi Kim,

Some of the adhesives are water soluble. Try leaving a puddle of water on a section of the floor for an hour or so.

If that doesn't work, you'll need a chemical stripper. You can usually find something at a paint store.
