Here’s what you need to clean bathroom tiles:
- One teaspoon of liquid soap
- One cup of baking soda
- Several drops of an essential oil (citrus, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, etc.)
- Enough water to form a paste.
How to clean your tiles with Baking Soda:
Baking soda is an inexpensive, fume-free, gentle cleaning agent. Simply stir the 4 ingredients together in a bowl until they form a paste that is easy to apply.
Pick up the mixture with a brush and spread it over the areas that need to be cleaned. You can apply it with the same brush you’ll use to scrub the tiles later. Give the paste up to ten minutes to soak. Use your brush to work the cleaner into the grout. You should see the stains begin to lift. Polish with a sponge and rinse with water.
An important precaution that you should take is to not use a very hard brush for scrubbing because that way you may end up damaging the tiles instead of cleaning it. Always use soft spongy brush that does not cause any scratch or damage to the tiles.
This easy and inexpensive tile cleaner cleans just as effectively as commercial products – without the addition of harsh chemicals. And, it smells great too! You can also use this cleaner in your shower, tub, sink, and counter tops.
