Cleaning Glass Tile Floors with Tide
Glass tiles can elevate any space and make it sophisticated and classy. But they are also expensive, and maintenance can be challenging in spaces with high foot traffic. Fortunately, glass tiles are easy to clean. They are resistant to mold, mildew, and stains, and since it is easy to notice when they are dirty, you’ll always know when to clean them.
They are not vulnerable to chemical damage, and they don’t absorb grime, dirt, or dust, which makes them all the easier to clean. However, if you use abrasive cleaners, you risk scratching your beautiful glass tiles.
To avoid this, use non-abrasive scrubbers and mild cleaners like vinegar. You cannot go wrong cleaning your floors with vinegar, no matter the type of floor. It does an excellent job of removing dirt buildup and even stubborn stains without damaging your floor’s finish.
You can also use Tide detergent to clean your glass tile floors. It is an effective and inexpensive solution for removing dirty buildup, grease, grime, and soap scum. You only need to mix some Tide with water and, using a mop, scrub your floors and then rinse.
Cleaning Natural Stone and Marble Tile Floors with Tide
Marble and natural stone tile floors can be cleaned with Tide detergent, but use non-abrasive scrubbers to avoid scratching them. You should also avoid using vinegar on both floor types to avoid damaging or discoloring them.
The process is simple, mix tide detergent with warm water in a bucket and mop your floors. To remove stubborn dirt or stains, you may use a neutral cleaner or a cleaner designed for the type of floor that needs cleaning.
Avoid cleaning your natural stone or marble tile floors with acidic or alkaline cleaners like vinegar or baking soda. Stick with neutral cleaners to avoid damaging your floors.
Cleaning Linoleum and Vinyl Tile Floors
To clean Vinyl, you can use Tide detergent and warm water or a solution of vinegar. Avoid using abrasive scrubbers to protect your vinyl tile floors from scratching.
Linoleum tile floors are just as easy to clean as Vinyl tile floors. Some Tide detergent and warm water solution will do the trick. You could also use a vinegar or baking power solution.
Cleaning filthy grout requires some elbow grease and a combination of cleaners. A mixture of Tide, water, and bleach applied to a dirty grout can work wonders. But you need to scrub the dirt out, which requires quite a bit of effort.
You may also use a solution of vinegar and water; it will work just as well. But if you are dealing with stained grout, make a paste of baking soda and water, and let it sit for a couple of hours. Then use a new toothbrush or nylon brush and give the grout a good scrub to remove the stain.
