Mop the floor at least once a week with a ceramic tile cleaner, then rinse with clear water. Dry the tile with a towel immediately after mopping. Keep a squeegee in the bathroom for wiping down tub and shower walls after each use. Alternatively, wipe the moisture from the walls with a towel. Wiping down the walls prevents both hard water stains and soap scum buildup.
Tip: Use tile polish to bring the shine back to dull ceramics. Put padding underneath heavy objects before sliding them across a tiled floor. Heavy items, such as furniture, can easily scratch tile. If scratches get down to the white part of the tile, you cannot buff them out. Ceramic tile sealers do not protect the tile from scratches; they only guard against stains.
