There are two parts of a home that home lovers will want to know more about cleaning. We always leave shiny. I think they are the heart of your home; these are the bathroom, and kitchen one thing these two areas have in common is the tiles. With them, the typical problems for cleaning them are the right way to get them spotless. It’s a real headache!
The kitchen tiles are one of the places where the most dirt accumulates in the whole house, mainly due to direct contact with oils and fats during cooking and the frequency of use of this space. For that reason, the appearance of stains and dirt on tiles is routine. Here are some useful tips for cleaning them simply, fast, and economically.
How to clean rough bathroom tile with vinegar and baking soda
Are you concerned about dirty and damp stained tiles and joints? I, too, until I discovered that this ingredient is very useful for almost any problem (yes, my mother was right in the end). Baking soda is an efficient ally when it comes to cleaning stained and stained tiles and is also ideal for removing soap scum, fungus, and mildew.
Cleaning bathroom tiles should be a daily household chore and a must. It is a room in the house that is also used a lot, at least two or three times a day, and that is why you should take advantage of the following tips on cleaning them properly.
As in the toilet, they accumulate traces of foam, soap, and scale, and although it seems like torture or an impossible challenge, the truth is that getting rid of them is easier than you think, and the solution is at your fingertips.

Powerful mixture to leave tiles shiny
Cleaners use this tactic to make bathroom or kitchen tiles, and grout look bright and shiny. They will certainly make your life easier! This is not a typical “stain remover remedy” that doesn’t work at all, but a real cleaning bomb that works effectively combined with ingredients that will not harm the surface and will leave it free of mildew, stains, dirt, germs, and bacteria.
This handmade bomb -don’t panic, you won’t have to throw it anywhere- is combined with other harmless ingredients and results in a sort of The“stone” which, when floated with the ceramic tile, is capable of removing stains and disinfecting without causing any damage, without being toxic for those who handle it and eliminating bad odors from the environment.
You will need the following:
- 1 small bottle of liquid alcohol.
- Liquid or powdered dish soap.
- 2 cups of baking soda.
How to clean with a cleaning pump
- In a bowl, place the baking soda with the liquid soap and mix slowly.
- Add the alcohol step by step in its totality.
- Make “balls” with this composition and let them rest for one or two hours until they harden.
- Hold one of these balls, rub it on the tiles, and let it act for one hour.
- Stir this with sufficient water and dry with a tissue to leave it lustrous.
How to remove tartar from bathroom and kitchen tiles
Yes, the tartar that accumulates on the ceramics is a topic that drives more than one crazy. Suppose you do not know how to remove it from the bathroom or kitchen walls. In that case, it is the perfect time to give a chance to this effective and inexpensive remedy you are sure to have available in your home.
This is what you need:
- A glass of vinegar
- One lemon.
- A sponge.
- A cloth.
- Mix the vinegar with the lemon juice and 30 ml of water in a glass.
- Apply this mixture with the help of a sponge in the area where the tartar stains are.
- Allow the product to take effect for 20 minutes and rinse with water.
- Wipe with a damp and dry cloth to give a touch of shine to the ceramics.
- Rinse the walls with warm water.
Recommendations for cleaning tile joints
The star ingredients to achieve this feat are baking soda and vinegar. However, do you use them properly? These are the cleaning techniques that have worked for me and with which I have achieved that both the ceramics and the joints look as good as new and the dirt comes out without so much effort:
- With vinegar: put equal parts water and vinegar in a container, pour this combination in a sprayer, spray on the joints, and let it act for 20 minutes. Scrub using a toothbrush and warm water.
- With baking soda: In this case, diluting in vinegar or water is not recommended. Use the baking soda powder directly on the joints and scrub with a toothbrush; leave for about 15 minutes and scrub again with a little warm water.
- With cleaning products: If you are lucky enough to have a chemical cleaning product that has accomplished this task, great. Suppose it’s not harmful to the planet. In that case, it’s not harmful and removes dirt, allergens, bacteria, and dust mites; keep doing it and recommend it to everyone you can.
Beware of dangerous combinations, for example:
- Baking soda and vinegar: as they can generate gases that are harmful to the skin, eyes, respiratory tract, and throat.
- Vinegar and hydrogen peroxide: forms peracetic acid, a component that can be explosive.
- Vinegar and bleach: produces harmful toxic fumes.
