    Pulled this bit of door beading up from the old tiles (porcelain) to lay some new ones back down (porcelain)

    After a good clean up its going back down. I'm assuming you stick it down with some sort of silicon, but can anyone recommend what's best?

    I would just use a general purpose white silicon to stick it down (few blobs). Maybe a bit round the edge, or a small smear of caulk.
    Try not to use too much as if you need to get it up again then anything bonding too well (like grab adhesive as well) may make that difficult without damaging the new tiles

    That beading is only usually used for hiding gaps when a door is fitted into existing decorations. With new tiles it shouldn't be necessary.

    Bit of wood glue would be fine, even on plastic, silicon isn't really for glueing.
