How do you remove emulsion paint from grout without damaging the ceramic tiles and grout?
I'm using Mr. Muscle cleaning fluid and using a steel wool cleaner to rub the paint off. It does get the paint off the grout, but you need to be careful not to scratch the tiles. We're painting the tiles afterwards so not too worried about damage. There is a product from Australia that is a broom on mop off grout cleaner no nasties www.pinkstuff.com.au. It gets paint off tiles I am a messy painter and I just made a solution let it sit and then mopped the paint splotches off and ended up with immaculate tiles and grout.

How the space shuttle tile is able to protect the shuttle?
The black tiles underneath the space shuttle are made of ceramics. Ceramics are already fired and thus able to withstand very high temperatures. The ceramic tiles do oxidize (which means material is lost) and are replaced between missions. The failure on Columbia was due to some of those ceramic tiles having fallen off during take off.

How do you get stain off Ceramic tile floor from doing the wood floor to gloss and step on tile and cant get it off?
Try rubbing the stain off with mineral spirits or paint thinner first. If that doesn't work, you may have to try a chemical stripper that removes the type of finish you applied to your wood floors. Generally, they won't damage the glazing on ceramic tiles, but they may strip color from your grout so be careful.
