Dampen a sponge with water. Scrub the area to work the baking soda into the stains like a scouring powder. Rinse the baking soda and vinegar off the tile with clean water. If water spots remain, repeat the process. When the tile is clean, dry it with a towel to prevent minerals in the rinse water from leaving new spots.
STEP 2: Measure __ Walls __ When tiling a wall, you'll want to establish a top line that is level. Few walls are truly plumb, so use a level to mark the top line. Establish its height so that you won't have to cut very thin tiles (or cut very thin shards from nearly full tiles) to come flush to the floor. Snap a top line on your walls, and then snap a center line, too. Be sure to lay out all the walls you plan to do before you begin tiling.
