How to clean the tiles in the toilet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: house cleaning, how to clean, tile cleaner

Hi

The tiles in my toilet are really dirty and I just can’t clean them off.  There’s dirt between the spaces between the tiles so if you know a way to clean off those ugly dirt please answer this question and I’ll be very thankful!

Thanks.

As a flooring consultant, I can’t recommend using anything abrasive on your grout. but, a Mr. Clean magic eraser might be your new best friend. They’re very inexpensive and you can get them just about anywhere cleaning product are sold.Please make sure that the cleaner you are using does not need to be rinsed off your floor.

When in doubt, clean ceramic tile and grout with a mild solution of vinegar and warm water. About 1/4 cup of vinegar to one gallon of water.

Happy Cleaning!

What is a good tile cleaner for the bathroom?

What is a good way to clean tiles in the bathroom?

A cleaner that doesn’t leave streaks afterwards. Natural mix would be good.

Try vinegar in a spray bottle. You can use some baking soda to scrub at the stains and then squirt it with vinegar (it will fizz up). I personally like to use bleach and water in the bathroom. My favorite store bought cleaner is Fantastik. It does a good job getting things to shine. You can use it on the tub, sink, toilet, faucet, etc. It’s fairly inexpensive, but homemade is always cheapest.

How should I clean quarry tiles? How should I remove grout from bathroom tiles?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: house cleaning, how to clean, tile cleaner

I have moved into a house with quarry tiles on whole ground floor which were under carpets and lino etc. Thye have paint on in places and generally look messy but apart from that are in good condition. What is the best place to clean them – is there any special product I can buy?

Also have just had bathroom done and there is still some grey grout on the black floor tiles that we’ve cleaned loads but is not coming up. Has anyone used something that has removed grout well?

Thanks.

I’m going to assume the QUARRY tiles were not/are not sealed, hence being as porous as a terra cotta flower pot. I agree with answer 1 in some sort of floor scrubbing machine, either using a stiff brush on the tool, or heavy duty Scrub pads,as are used for stripping Vinyl and terrazza, etc. floors.

Part of your issue should include some hand scraping perhaps, wire brushing perhaps, knowing what the paint formulation is,,, Latex/Oil??? Any Adhesives residue?

Sadly grout once dry/set/cured is going to be your greater challenge. I tile every day of my life, and with no offense to any who might answer, there is NO chemical that will dissolve it. With no offense to YOU, I’m curious about the wording. “We Just Had Bathroom Done”. Does that suggest it was a DIY? or contracted? Proper application of grout, slaked or not, almost demands it be wiped, in as many as 3 stages, immediately, or asap

After application, with large GROUT sponges.

1 st step would be barely moist to remove heavy residue, then successive wipings as the grout sets, to either Flush the grout with the face of the tile, OR get it just to the depressed adges on most glazed tile. The final result would leave nothing but a dust easily mopped away.

I just finished grouting 600 sq. ft. of tile this very morning. At this stage you may have to wire brush, hard knife scrape, possibly try a heavy grit garnet sand paper, and consider that the tile, can be scratched, given that a glaze coat is only mils thick. If the tile is porcelain, and has the pattern/color going all the way through it, you may be better able to save the job. Certainly there is a hand operated/manual, Grout saw/tool you can purchase, but the task will still be tedious.

If in fact the job was contracted, I’d be on the phone long and loud with whoever did the job. With Black Tile, I probably would have used black grout, but that’s just my opinion. Steven Wolf Just my two “sense”

How can I keep my floor tiles clean, it becomes dirty very easily?

How can I keep my floor tiles clean, it becomes dirty very easily?

My house is on 5th floor, and the area where i live is surrounded by construction works. As I have tiles on my floor, it becomes very dirty and unclean very easily. I come back from office at around 7:30 pm, and have to wash my cloths, iron them, cook food and clean the dishes all manually, I become very tired by the end of the day and have no energy to clean the floor (I dont have any Vacum Cleaner).

Please hepl me.

Put a rug in front of your main-door (not inside of the house main door, put it outside and in front of your main door), and whoever comes can rub their shoe on that . Don’t go inside the house wearing shoes, buy a shoe rack and keep all of your shoes there.

How to clean ceramic tiles in shower stall?

How to clean ceramic tiles in shower stall?

My shower stall has stain marks in between the ceramic tiles. I use magic eraser but it still looks like the same. The color between the tiles didn’t change at all (I mean the white cement). Actually, my shower stall also have a bath tub. In between the joint between the tub and the ceramic wall it has a black line of mold. How to clean that line of mold? I used magic eraser, bleach, scrubbing bubbles. But the line is still there. Need help.

Go with tilex mold and mildew remover. Spray it on and let it set there for at least five minutes. Then use a decent scrub brush of some kind, even a toothbrush would work, on the joint and it should come clean. If tilex does not work, try C.L.R. with the same process.

How can I clean ceiling tiles?

How can I clean ceiling tiles?

I have white ceiling tiles that need cleaning. They are made of a fiber that is not water proof. They are just dingy not real dirty.

Best way I know is to make a 50/50 mixture of bleach and water and lightly spray the stained tiles. You must go a little beyond the stain and may have to repeat several times…but it does work.

How to clean ceramic tiles effectively ?

My toilet ceramic tiles keep on having black stains and they don’t go off totally even I use ceramic cleaner (which contains Hydrochloride Acid) to wash. Is there any other floor cleaners that I can try?

Oxyclean with bleach. This will clean anything. Never add bleach to any cleaner. Once it is clean, use a tile sealer. You will have to deep clean and seal every year or so, depending on how often you clean with harsh chemicals.

Can you clean tiles with baking soda and vinegar?

Also what type of vinegar do I get? How much baking soda and how much vinegar should I use?

It depends on how stong a solution you want. Lets say you can use as a rule of thumb about 2 tbsps of baking soda on about 1 cup of vinegar. White vinegar (cheapest) works best. You can use baking soda on its own as well.
