Sharp corner - shower tile


One floor tile in the shower has a sharp corner that sticks up.

What tool/method can I use to grind/file/sand it down?

Sorry for the fuzzy picture.

Thanks

You'll probably be better off lifting it out...
and either resetting it or putting something else in the void.

right. but temporarily, you can sand it down with emory paper- about 80 grit. Wrap it around a small wood block and then sand. Yes, it will chew off that sharp edge. dont give up in one minute, though......
