Natural Way Of Removing Stains From Tiles
If you want to remove stains from your tiles then we are here to help you. You just need to go through the below mentioned natural way of removing stains very carefully:
- First of all, you need to pour the club soda on the stain and let the soda sit to lift sugary or fatty stains. Buy a flavorless and sugar-free club soda — water & carbonation that are enough to remove the stains easily. Pour enough club soda onto the stain in order to create a pool of water, and let the soda sit and react for at least 2-4 minutes.
- The carbonation should lift the stain adequately, just wipe away any leftover liquid and then scrub the stain with your abrasive sponge because the club soda is very effective for cleaning any grease stains and fat-based stains, but this will also be very effective in cleaning the sugary stains and messes like spilled soda stains.
- You can also use white vinegar to clean stains out of the grout betwixt tiles. You just need to pour some white vinegar on your abrasive sponge and then simply wipe your grout lines roughly to lift any dirty or black residue. Don't mix your vinegar with baking soda or any other cleaners because it will cancel out the cleaning properties of both items. If your tile area is still dirty then you need to wipe your vinegar away with clean water before trying another cleaning process.
- The white vinegar is also great for grout and also very effective for cleaning household ceramics like your bathtubs, toilets, and sinks. It's especially useful for removing any hard water stains.
- Make sure to use full-strength vinegar to maximize the cleaning performance. Buy a full-strength vinegar because the cooking vinegar isn't strong.
- You can also mix baking soda and water to clean your non-ceramic tiles. Ceramic, marble, and other tiles with a finish coating are very easy to clean by using the other methods in this project, but the slate and differently unglazed tiles must be cleaned with the help of a mix of baking soda and water. Simply mix 3 parts baking soda with 1 part water in your water bowl, stir the ingredients into a paste, then scrub your paste onto the stain affected area with the help of a toothbrush.
- The baking soda and water is preferable for slate tiles because it won't leave any permanent marks and could be easily washed away on ceramic tile or on your other glazed tiles. Baking soda is also good to use for small & sticky stains.
- After you clean your tiles with the baking soda, it is very normal to have a white glaze left on your tile surface you cleaned. To avert this, rinse your tile area well and then simply wipe it down 2-3 times with your clean rag.
- You can also spray lemon juice on any hard water stains on your finished tiles because the lemon juice is very acidic and will easily lift any hard water stains easily from your finished tiles. Simply spray the lemon juice on the stain affected area of your tile, or soak a rag or sponge in the lemon juice, and then you need to scrub the stain affected area until the stain is lifted up properly.
- You need to know that you can only use lemon juice on your finished tiles, such as ceramic and porcelain, and try to use lemon juice on stone or slate tiles because the acidity could cause unremovable stains in the material.
