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.
Wet a sponge with distilled white vinegar. Wipe the water spots on the tile. Let the vinegar sit for several minutes to soften the deposits. Wipe more vinegar onto the area to wet it again. Sprinkle baking soda onto the spots. Wait while the two substances react and fizz.
