Mesh imprint from mosaic backing


I'm installing some cerrara marble tiles and some of the mosaics have an imprint of the mesh backing from being stacked on one another. I've tried using some dish soap and water with a sponge to remove it but no luck.

Any suggestions on how to remove this?

Thank you!

Hi Dave,

You might try scrubbing with a neutral tile cleaner -- nothing with acid in it.

I would try some soft scrub with a no scratch blue scotch-brite pad on a tile or two. Hopefully the glue didn’t etch the soft marble. Fairly reputable manufacturers place a sheet of paper or plastic between the sheets to prevent this.
