How to Remove Water Spots From Ceramic Tile: As hard water dries on your ceramic tile, it leaves a film or buildup of minerals behind. Harsh cleaners or scouring substances can scratch or scuff ceramic tile, but mild household items can dissolve water spots without damaging the surface. The acid content of vinegar breaks up the alkaline mineral deposits, and the gentle scouring properties of baking soda help remove the water stains and any soap scum to leave your tiles sparkly clean. The longer that water spots remain on your tile, the harder they can become to remove, so tackle them as soon as you notice them.
In an older home, you may find the floor isn't square, which makes the job more complicated. Use the most obvious wall as a baseline, so those entering the room will see tile lines parallel to that wall; your job will look more even.
