spacers for stone tile


in the process of putting up a stone tile backsplash, should of asked earlier, but when is estimated time to remove the spacers between the tiles. The last thing I want is for them to set-up in the thinset. Even a ball park time, couple hours, over-night? Thanks, really appreciate any info

I have seen my tile installer remove them the next day before grouting.

I'd leave them overnight. They shouldn't get too stuck, and if they do use some needlenose pliers to pull them out. Taking them out too soon can let the tiles sag just when you think they won't.
