If it's not old asbestos tile, use a heat gun or hair dryer. You can pick up a cheap heat gun for $20-25. What are you putting down next?

thanks,its not asbestos. ceramic tile, anything else i should know before installation. i hope i don't have to get this glue up. its a little tacky after i get the tiles up, but it seems to be drying out after the air hits it for a few hours. and its not thick its a light coat of glue

I haven't done ceramic for years. I'll let one of the ceramic guys chime in.
