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!

Is there a way to clean leather without a specific leather cleaner?

Is there a way to clean leather without a specific leather cleaner?

I have a wallet with a white flower made out of leather on it. I want to clean it because it is dingy. Is there anything I can use like shampoo or regular soap or anything like that I can use?

Yeah, just use a nice mild shampoo watered down and rub it in with cotton wool. Then soak cotton wool in a little olive oil and polish up to remove remaining shampoo and to keep the leather nice and supple.

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”
