Mirror Back Splash

Well I got a call from my wife while I was at work and she asked if I had been doing some remodeling of her kitchen in our Georgetown. Of course I would never do any mods without her blessing. Seems we had one of the back splash tiles fall off the wall. We have not made a trip yet and now I have to make a repair before this Friday as we are taking our maiden trip to Tunica, Ms.
Now for the question. What kind of glue should I use to replace the tile? Thanks in advance for any help.

I used Liquid Nails on mine when I replaced the Mirrors behind the stove with the tile like back splash from HD. FR used those two-sided sticky patches. The problem we had was the mirror on the right side was only being held in place by the mirror across the back. Those patches seem to stick very well to the wall but come off of the item they're holding in place. I guess it could be from temperture changes, who knows.
While you're at it be sure to check the mirror inserts in the doors, Medicine Cabinet etc. The adhesive they used on them has a tendency to break loose as well. I check mine before each trip. So far I've had 2 mirrors come loose and had to reattach them.

I have just purchased a 1 hour dry silicone caulk that is very strong adhesive and dries quickly it was almost 8 bucks for one tube and is gold and black label. This has worked great for holding the mirror inside our dressing room door!

There is a special adhesive used for mirrors, due to the reflective stuff on the back. Some general purpose glues may eat the reflective coating. You can find mirror adhesive at Lowe's/Home depot in the section where they sell mirrors, not necessarily with the other caulk and stuff.

I would go with Windrider's advice. Many of the adhesives will eat away at the quicksilver coating on the mirror. Lowes and The Home Depot both carry the special mirror adhesive.

Ditto- I agree.
