Lime is a natural stone made of calcium.With a natural rustic and rough look, it is ideal for natural, rustic or spa-style bathroom facilities and can sometimes be found in polished or honed styles.Its installation is similar to tumbling marble and has similar rough edges and wind corners.It has multiple sizes, all of which are suitable for wall applications.After sealing properly, it can be installed on the shower wall.Measure the wall of the shower installed with lime.Find a place on the nearby floor where tiles can be laid.This is done to determine how many tiles are continuously installed on the shower wall, and where the tiles need to be cut.First lay the tiles on the back wall of the shower.Place the first tile at the center of the bottom row and spread the next tile evenly on each side.Cut the tile into a tile suitable for a wet saw and put it back into the layout to check again if it is appropriate.Use the tile spacers to keep the rows uniform if needed.By setting the first tile in the corner of the row at the bottom, lay the tiles of the two side walls and move to the front of the shower.Cut the tile to fit on the wet saw and return it to the layout to check if it is appropriate.Install the tiles on the back wall of the shower first.Apply a small amount of thin mortar to the bottom center of the wall with a spatula.Seal the mortar with the groove edge of the spatula until its thickness is uniform.Place the tile firmly in the mortar at a slight angle and twist it in place to form a good bond.Finish the back wall before moving to the side.Let the mortar dry for 24 hours and then seal the lime Hua with stone sealant.If you plan to keep the lime-China hole visible, use a foam brush to fully saturate the surface of the stone and hole with a stone seal machine.If you plan to fill the hole with grout, apply the sealant carefully to the surface of the tile with a brush and try not to allow any water droplets to enter the hole.Wait for the sealer to penetrate for 10 minutes and then buff off the excess with a soft cloth.Grouting lime tile by sand grouting with grouting float on the edge of the tile.If you are filling the holes on the tile, please apply grouting on the entire surface of the tile.Keep the float at 45-At a certain angle with the tile, the grouting is pushed into the seam or hole from several directions to ensure a good coverage.Let the mud dry for 10 minutes.Wash away the excess grout with a damp grouting sponge.Wipe the sponge with a circle on the tile until it is covered with grout.Rinse clean and repeat until the tiles are clean.Be careful not to wash the grout off the seam.Before applying the sponge to the tile, use only enough water to suppress the sponge and make sure it doesn\'t drip.Let the mud dry for at least 24 hours before using the shower.
