In my bathroom there is a ceramic tile border of one tile width around the entire perimeter of the room. Some of the tiles are badly broken, and since the house is about 30 years old, these tiles cannot be replaced with matching tiles. I want to remove the entire border without damage to the wallboard underneath. What is recommended to accomplish this task? Thanks for your help.

the tile border can be removed but only if you are prepared to put up with a lot of dust!
