Hey everyone. Just finishing up a subway tile backsplash and noticed 2 small cracks/scrathes on one tile. Is there any way to repair the crack without just pulling the tile and replacing? I was thinking of trying a porcelain repair product or some type of epoxy. Thanks in advance!

Replace it. It's far easier and better. Break the tile into small pieces with the claw of a hammer, without going through the backer. If you try to pry it out, you run the risk of chipping adjacent tiles.

Sometimes it's easier to sacrifice the tile next to it and replace 2 instead of doing surgery for 1
