    We have two layers of floor tiles stuck down with adhesive in the kitchen laid by a previous owner and want to remove them and relay new ones. We've managed to chip up bits and pieces but it seems impossible. Is there a way to dilute the adhesive to be able to remove them?

    Never heard of one.

    Anything thing that could - although you don't specify type of tile - would be so powerful as to be very dangerous to use.

    Thank you mountainwalker. They are self-stick tiles.

    A long handled bladed scraper should make light work of uplifting them, try a local tool hire place if you don't need to buy one.

    SDS drill with a tile removing bit would make light work of them.
