Are you tired of looking at grimy bathroom tiles? Are you done with scrubbing and still not getting the desired results? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to clean those bathroom floor tiles and shower wall tiles in no time. Read on for the best tips and tricks to get rid of dirt, grime, and mildew buildup.

Step 1: Clean up Loose Debris

Before beginning to clean the tiles, it is important to clear up any loose debris that may be present on the bathroom floor or shower walls. Use a vacuum cleaner or a broom to eliminate dirt, sand and other particles. Doing this will make it easier for the cleaner to get into the grout and lift off stubborn stains and grime.

Step 2: Make a DIY Cleaning Solution

Mix water and white vinegar in a 50:50 ratio for a DIY cleaning solution and leave the answer on for some time. Avoid harsh chemicals and use warm water and a microfibre cloth to wipe over your tiles. To clean grout between tiles, take equal parts of white vinegar and clean drinking water in a bowl, then use an old toothbrush to scrub the grout. Additionally, you could use baking soda alone or other substances to clean bathroom tiles. A paste made of distilled white vinegar and baking soda can also be used to clean shower doors. Finally, use hot water for rinsing and drying the tiles for the best results.

Step 3: Apply the Cleaning Solution and Scrub

Once you have made the DIY cleaning solution, the next step is to apply it to the tiles and scrub. Take a sponge, cloth, or brush and get into all the nooks and crannies. Be sure to rinse off any excess cleaning solution before it can dry and leave residue behind.

Step 4: Use a Microfibre Cloth for Wiping

After scrubbing the tiles with the DIY cleaning solution, use a clean microfibre cloth to wipe away any residue. Microfibre cloths are ideal for cleaning as they can pick up dirt and grime without scratching the surface of your bathroom tiles. Make sure to rinse and wring out the cloth after each wipe. This will ensure that you don’t spread around any dirt that was previously picked up.

Step 5: Use Warm Water and Vinegar

In Step 5, using warm water and vinegar can help further remove any residue or soap scum. For porcelain and ceramic tiles, a 1:1 mixture of distilled white vinegar and warm water is ideal for cleaning. Fill a spray bottle with the solution and spray it over the tiles before scrubbing with a brush or soft cloth. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse and dry.

Step 6: Use an Old Toothbrush

Once you have applied the cleaning solution and scrubbed the tiles and grout, use an old toothbrush to get into the nooks and crevices of the grout. Working in small sections will help you stay focused and prevent fatigue. The toothbrush is ideal for detailed cleaning, as it can reach even the most hard-to-reach spots. Once you’re done with the toothbrush, wipe down the tiles and grout with a microfibre cloth, then rinse with warm water.

Step 7: Use Specialist Cleaners

Once you have completed the previous steps, it is time to use specialist cleaners. These are designed to remove tough stains and dirt from bathroom and shower wall tiles. Select a product suitable for your tile type and follow the instructions carefully. Use a soft brush to scrub the tiles with the cleaner, then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Finally, dry the tiles completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 8: Use Hot Water

After you have applied an appropriate cleaning solution and scrubbed the walls and tiles, it’s time to rinse the tiles with hot water. The hot water helps to open the ceramic pores of your tile and remove any remaining residue. It’s important to remember that hot water can damage some types of tiles, so check with your manufacturer before using it. Alternatively, you can also use a steam cleaner for this step, as it is gentle enough to prevent any damage to your tiles.

Step 9: Use Baking Soda and Vinegar

In Step 9, baking soda and vinegar can be used together to create a powerful cleaning solution. To make the mixture, mix half a cup of baking soda with half a cup of white vinegar in a spray bottle. This solution can be sprayed directly onto the surface of the tiles and scrubbed using an old toothbrush. For stubborn stains, use a paste of baking soda and water and rub it into the stain with an old toothbrush. For shower doors, use a paste made from distilled white vinegar and baking soda for the best results.

Step 10: Rinse and Dry the Tiles

Once you’re done scrubbing and rinsing, it is important to dry the tiles thoroughly. Use a clean, dry microfiber mop or cloth to remove any remaining moisture. Ensure all areas are completely dry to avoid any streaks or additional staining. Finish the job by buffing the tiles with a dry cloth for a polished, streak-free finish.
