How to Clean and Shine Tiles

You should not worry if your tiles are corroded, unclean, and dull. They may be revitalised and restored to their former glory. The best part is that you can accomplish it without the need for pricey chemicals.

It was no secret that my grandma was a tile cleaning pro. I’m going to share a couple of her tried-and-true secrets with you. These techniques are easy to use, efficient, and low-effort.

1. Linseed Oil for Extra Shine

Tiles made of terracotta, cement, and ceramic often tarnish over time. However, linseed oil is a natural substance that can restore their shine. All you have to do is lightly massage the tiles with a clean cloth soaked in a few drops of linseed oil. Use of excessive oil should be avoided as this might cause the floor to become slick. Allow oil to seep into tiles and allow to dry. If necessary, you can reapply it. Your tiles will have an unparalleled sheen!

2. Potato Cooking Water for Grease Removal

Don’t discard the boiling water from potatoes the next time. Use it to clean your tiles instead. Grease and filth are more absorbed off the surface by the starch in the potato water. This technique works very well for keeping your tiles shiny. To keep your tiles appearing pristine, use the potato cooking water once a month.

3. To Get a Natural Clean, Use Black Soap

A multipurpose cleaner, black soap is excellent for parquet flooring, linoleum, and tiles alike. Because it is both a disinfectant and a degreaser, it is ideal for removing filth and grime. To use, combine one litre of water and black soap in a bucket. Take a mop and give every floor a gentle scrub. Your floors will not only be clean, but they’ll also have a beautiful shine that you won’t be able to resist.

4. White Vinegar for Stubborn Stains

Tiles with the most stubborn stains may be cleaned effectively by using white vinegar, a potent natural cleanser. In a spray bottle, combine equal parts white vinegar and water. After applying the solution, let it sit for a few minutes on the regions that are soiled. After that, use a brush or sponge to scrub the spots. Rinse with water, then take a look at your spotless, glossy tiles.

You now know four quick and easy ways to polish and clean your tiles. Bid adieu to expensive chemicals and welcome to miraculously effective natural treatments. See the difference for yourself by putting these strategies to use. Your tiles will be appreciative!
