I'd like to drill some holes through new ceramic or porcelain tile in my bathroom. I tried my normal drill and bits, but my bits are burnt and the tile is so slippery.

I do not want to have cracks on my tiles and make some damages. :(

Any suggestions?

Hi Ali,

Use Masking tape... Mark the hole and drill.. EASY

Remember the right drill bit for tiles or concrete.

There are specific bits for tile. Bosch makes a good one.
