And of course, you must not move it or do any unnecessary movements that will misplace the damaged tile instead, you have to let the glue work for twenty four hours.
If you see that the glue has already dried up, the next thing that you should do is to sand them down using sandpaper. You have to continue sanding down the dried glue until you achieve an area that is completely flat. You should not be rough when sanding the dried glue, instead, you have to be quick and be light at the same time.
