How to Shine Ceramic Tiles: Restore the shine of your ceramic tiles first by vacuuming up all the dirt, grime, and dust. In a bucket, add one gallon of warm water and mix in one tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. Dunk your mop in the solution, and squeeze it out until your mop is damp. Mop up your floors adding a little pressure to wipe away grime and better restore the shine. Dump your water/alcohol solution and refill the bucket with clean, warm water. Rinse your floors using the clean water and your damp mop. To avoid blotchiness or any water marks, dry the floor with a towel.
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.
