The tiles in your home can add to the ambience and beauty of your rooms. However, with time and use, they will naturally lose their glossy look and begin to look old and worn out. Food stains, dirty grout, rust stains etc. all contribute to this, but with a few simple methods, you can remove stubborn stains from the tiles. Rather than ignore the dull tiles, you can try to bring back their gleaming brilliance. Use natural products in your house to save money and contribute to preserving the environment from harmful chemicals.
Vinegar is a natural cleaner that can be used for a variety of cleaning tasks. Combine one part of white distilled vinegar with one gallon of water. Undiluted vinegar can harm the grout between your tiles. Use the diluted vinegar to mop the floors. To avoid soaking the tile, drain away any excess liquid immediately. You can also put the diluted vinegar in a spray bottle as an alternative. Spray it in small parts of the floor and mop each area.
In a bucket of warm water, combine equal portions of baking soda and white vinegar along with a little dishwashing detergent. Mop the floors by dipping a mop in the solution. Strong cleaning is required for tough stains. With a dry, clean cloth, dry the floor. On your tiles, avoid using harsh brushes or scrubbing products. Use a soft sponge or brush instead. Be sure to remove all baking soda residue after cleaning the tiles. When you live on a rented property, it is vital that you keep your tiles looking as good as new. At the time of vacating, hire a good bond cleaning company to make sure the tiles are in good condition.
When tile floors have stubborn soap scum or filth build-up, you may restore the sheen by combining everyday products to make an effective cleaner. Combine 1/4 cup of borax, 1/2 cup of ammonia, and 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Mix the ingredients before adding 1 gallon of warm water. Apply the cleaning solution to the tile floor, then thoroughly rinse it. Let the floor thoroughly dry by air.
Lemon is a fantastic solution for restoring the shine to your floor tiles. Use lemon juice in a spray bottle to clean the tile on your floor. Use a moist cloth or sponge to properly wipe the surface until the shiny appearance appears. Before cleaning the tiles, soak the sponge or towel in lemon juice for 10 minutes. Lemon juice’s acidic components will corrode the tiles if left to stand for a long time. When using lemon juice, make sure to completely rinse your tiles.
Using a high gloss tile sealant will give your tiles a little more shine after you’ve cleaned them using natural cleaning agents. The sealer also helps to protect your tiles. Select a product made for the kind of tiles you have. As opposed to ceramic tiles, most high-gloss sealers are made for stone tiles with porous surfaces. To ensure that it adheres well to ceramic tile before applying it, test it first on a sample tile or in a secret location.
