Clean hard water stains from the tile as soon as you notice them, before they become severe. Combine baking soda with water to make a paste. Coat the spots with the paste then sprinkle vinegar onto it until it begins to bubble and foam. Scrub the paste lightly to remove the softened spots, rinse and wipe dry. Alternatively, use a hard water remover specifically formulated for ceramic tile. Do not use highly abrasive cleaners or scrubbing pads on ceramic tile. Abrasives cause permanent etching on the tile surface.
Tips: Wipe the ceramic tile in your shower with lemon oil twice a month to keep pesky water stains and mildew at bay. Protect your ceramic floors by placing throw rugs in high_dirt areas, such as by doors, in hallways and in front of kitchen work areas. Place felt pads under any hardwood or metal furniture that comes into contact with your ceramic floor.
