reattach old shower tiles falling off
We have an old bathroom, build in the 50ies, as you can probably appreciate from the black-on-salmon color. A portion of the tiles in the shower are coming off the wall. Eventually, in a year or so, we want to redo the whole bath but we don't have the time and resources to do it now. I don't want to retile the whole shower since we are going to tear all down.
I just want to fix it temporarily until I either have the time to do it, or have the cash the pay someone else to do it for me.
The tiles came off without braking. I was thinking of gluing them back somehow.
What is the best way to reattach them on so that they look half decent and they do not fall off the first time we open the faucet?
Also, how can I effectively clean the old grout off the tiles?
The stuff in the back is mortar. There is about 1" thick of it, on drywall.
