How can I kill existing glue prior to laying ceramic tiles in a bathroom. I'm told that I can put sawdust, cement, or anything powdery prior to laying the adhesive is this right?

Walls or floor?... :confused: ...I wouldn't put anything powdery onto it. If you can, try to remove it with a scraper. Try putting something on it, to soften it and make it easier to remove. What type of glue was it anyway, and what was it sticking down/up? :confused: Sorry for the questions.

I would try and remove the worst of it, even warming it up a little with a hairdryer might help.. just a thought.
