I'd like to remove the handles on the walls in the tiled shower that were installed by the elderly couple that owned the house before us. What should I use to fill in the holes and to make them as invisible as possible?

Thanks!

You can always clean the surface, (make sure there are no plastic wall anchors, and if there are, pull them out). Then, fill the holes with a grout color that matches the actual tile.

Some people use silicon but I wouldn't recommend it, as most likely you would wind up with the silicon just attracting mildew.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Hi Bob,

I recently noticed that some of the tiles in our shower have holes in them. I think they're either travertine or limestone. What is the cause of this and how can I fix it?

Thank you,

PJ
