Natural Ways to Make Tile Floors Shine: Tile floors lose their shine after a while due to dirt, stains and wear. When tile floors are no longer shiny, they appear dull and unpleasant to look at. Instead of ignoring dull floors, take a little time to return their shine so they look appealing again. Commercial products may cost a lot of money, and it can be difficult to determine which ones will clean your floor the best. To save money and help to protect the environment from dangerous chemicals, use natural ingredients in your home to clean your tile floors.
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.
