How to Make Ceramic Tile: It is not difficult to make ceramic tile at home without professional assistance. Ceramic tiles are among the most preferred tiles for flooring and wall_tiling purposes. Often referred to as glazed tiles or polished tiles, ceramic tiles have a slightly lustrous exterior, creating their characteristic glossy surface. Ceramic tiles can be a bit expensive when bought from a retailer; however, you can make ceramic tile with some guidance and basic household supplies, as explained below.
Mix 1ǚ cup of white vinegar with one gallon of warm water in a large bucket. If your tiles are especially grungy, increase the vinegar ratio to 1 cup for each gallon of water. Dip a mop into the vinegar solution, squeezing out the excess liquid. Start at one end of the room, pushing the mop across the floor until you have mopped the entire floor. For dirtier floors, dip the mop into the vinegar solution frequently. Immerse a clean rag into the solution to clean and polish ceramic tile countertops, backsplashes or other items.
