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.
How to Restore a Marble Floor's Shine: Unlike hardwood, vinegar should never come into contact with marble. Anything acidic such as orange juice, soda, or other kinds of fruit juices will strip off the natural shine and make your marble floors dull forever. Instead, fill up a large bucket with warm water and 1 tbsp of dish soap. Get out your floor cleaning equipment and sweep or vacuum up any dust or debris. If you have a large space to clean, hand scrubbing can be a pain, so you may want to invest in some heavy_duty equipment like those from J & J and Services. Dunk a large sponge into the soapy water, squeeze out the excess and rub down your marble floors. Then, take a damp cloth and go over the marble once again to clean off any soap.
