comment Bathroom slate tile stain/decoloration
Tried Lime-away several times and the white-ish does not seem to go away after the tile dries. I have read online conflicting statements about whether I could use use acidic cleaner or not on slate. Any thoughts? I bought Heavy Duty Acidic Cleaner (link below) (by Miracle Sealants) and I am wondering if this would strip the existing layer of old sealant (and hopefully the whiteness on the slate) and all I have to do after is re-seal it. miraclesealants.com/…

tried cleaning it, that is the color that remains after cleaning, also on the picture there is an area with more washout color and other tiles have some more grey marks, that are the ones I am more worried about.

@bcworkz you think the metallic plate would hold in place by "gluing" it to the saddle using epoxy? I am afraid that with some of the use it will "unglued"

yes, thank you Greg, I uppvoted your answer in hopes someone else will give me a solution without using the metal plate... I have a feeling I won't be able to screw in any screws without chipping the stone/marble looking saddle.

the metal plate would have to be cut to size, I would imagine it would be easier to fill in the existing hole and re-drill (assuming that there is a type of fill-in concrete or other material that won't flake with time)... below link to similar flush bolt we have. door.cc/assets/pics/about%20interior%20doors/Flush-bolt-.jpg

Apologies for not having a picture to hand. the latch is sort on the side of the door and the pin is inside the door. There is no metal plate like the one on your picture. I think our only option is to fill in the existing hole with some strong/durable material that won't break apart and redo a smaller hole. What material could we use?
