  • Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of Dawn dish soap and vinegar. Spray it on the tiles and let it work. If they are tougher stains, you may have to scrub with a plastic scrubber!

    1 cup baking soda

    1 cup white cleaning vinegar

    1 Tbsp blue Dawn

    2 gallons hot water (I boil about 1/3 of mine)

    I've used this for many years and it keeps every clean without any issues.

    Here is a good method. I use the Mr Clean Magic Erasers no chemicals and they do a great job

    Hi Cuky: You can make your own cleaning solution: Here's the recipe for an all-purpose cleaning solution.

    In a 5-quart bucket, mix 1 cup of distilled vinegar, 3 tablespoons of borax, 1 gallon of hot water and 1/2 cup of soap. You can add 10 or 15 drops of tea tree, lavender or lemon oil for a nice fragrance. Mix the ingredients and then pour some of the mixture into a spray bottle. Save the rest in a gallon jug. The raw ingredients will set you back $25 to $30, but you'll have enough to last for years! Use this mixture to clean tile, countertops and painted woodwork. It's a good all-purpose cleaner, but it's not the best for cleaning glass. Use club soda to clean glass. But, don't use paper towels that are expensive. Use the cheap ones, they don't have the softener in them that leaves a haze.

    Good luck

    I clean professionally and I use a soap scum remover such as scrubbing bubbles or lysol power bath. Spray it on, let sit for several minutes then scrub lightly with a nylon scrubby to gently remove stubborn stains. Rinse. Regular future cleanings won't require the scrubbing step.

    I use a mix of hot water , white vinegar and a few drops of dawn dishwashing detergent . Rinse well ! For areas outsUse of the shower area , usually a glass cleaner works well . For the shower area , keep a squeegee in or next to the shower and use it on the shower walls ( and doors ) each time you shower . The few minutes it takes , is well worth it . It not only helps prevent mold/mildew ( along with letting your bathroom dry out by leaving the door / window open after your shower ) ,

    but will drastically cut back on everyone's favorite chore of bathroom cleaning , lol !

  • Hey! I use a cup of warm white vinegar with a cup of dish soap mixed in a spray bottle. I spray it all over the tiles and let it sit for an hour. Any mildew, soap scum, etc wipe away easily after that.

    If you are looking for a tip on cleaning the grout make a paste of baking soda and peroxide then apply it to your grout with a toothbrush. Let it sit a little and then remove with a clean cloth.

  • This is the shower cleaner that we use to help keep grout and tiles clean and minimize the mildew - it works on kitchen grout too. I've also included a great article about mold if it's gone that far. Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly

    I use either white vinegar, or Pine-sol, or Mr. Clean.

  • I have a steamer that works great to loosen the dirt and then I go over it with a little vinegar and water. I use a toothbrush in the grout lines...Hope that helps.
