    Tile Mastic. Sometimes called "organic" mastic or adhesive, tile mastic is a sticky tile adhesive that comes in premixed tubs. It is best for applications in dry areas, such as walls in kitchens and living areas. Mastic is water-based acrylic glue that is not moisture-resistant or heat-resistant.

    Tile mastic. It off-gasses a lot and is not easy to clean up one it dries.

    I would wear a P95 mask, tape down drop cloths & painters’ tape the edge of where you’ll stop grouting.

    The grout should be non/sanded with an acrylic or polymer additive. Once again, clean-up should be done while it’s wet.

    I would seal the dried grout with a non-yellowing sealer, as stove-top splatters will soak into the grout.
