I have successfully just installed my first tile floor (all by myself, can you tell I am pleased?). Grouting will happen this weekend, but I am finding it impossible to remove the spacers! I used 1/4" hard plastic spacers. I have tried prying them out, and chiseling them out, with little success. I am afraid if I get too agressive with the removal I'll chip the corners of my lovely tile.
Are there any tricks to getting the spacers out, or alternately, am I asking for trouble if I leave them in place and grout over them? Should I have done something differently in the installation tohat would have allowed easier spacer removal?
