Place rugs or mats on the tile in areas where water splashing occurs, such as near sinks or tubs. Rugs at entryways prevent tracked in water from drying on the floor and further prevent water marks. Wipe up water spills immediately with a soft towel. Hard water marks can develop if the water air dries on the tile surface.
Attack soap scum and hard water stains on ceramic tile in the shower and grease stains on kitchen backsplashes with care. Many all_purpose, commercial cleaning products are safe on ceramic tile, as long as they don't contain ammonia, acid, vinegar or chlorine. Abrasive cleansers also should not be used on ceramic tile. Many products that are advertised to be "green" should be safe, but always check the label to be sure. Buff ceramic tile that appears to be cloudy or foggy with a clean, dry cloth. Often, what appears to be dirt on ceramic is really just condensation, so buff it away to restore the shine.
