Tile is a terrific flooring material, but the grout between the tiles is very absorbent and stains easily.

1. Dry your bathroom after every shower or cleaning.
2. Clean bathroom tile and grout weekly with a pH neutral cleaner.
3. Clean the tile and grout occasionally with a mild alkali cleaner.
4. Remove mold or mildew with a stronger oxygen bleach mixture.
5. Seal bathroom grout with a latex penetrating sealer after installation, and again every year.

All are sound advice but to dry the bathroom every after shower is plain overkill not to mention too much work. But yeah thanks for the tips!

Assemble a paste of baking soda and water. Apply it on the dirt and let it stay over night, then wash the stain in the early morning with a hard nylon brush.

Tile floor is easier to clean up than carpet. You should assess the type of cleaning your floor needs, depending on your tile. This is very important because not all tile flooring is made the same. Metal, glass, ceramic (glazed and unglazed) will all have different cleaning requirements and restrictions on what materials you can use. Avoid cleaners that have bleach, abrasives, ammonia, or other hazardous or polluting compounds. In my opinion, you should consult a professional flooring company for that, as they provide various ideas for your needs. Thanks for sharing.

Regular cleaning of tiles is really difficult in busy schedules. So I generally use some detergents or harpic to make it clean.

Vinegar also works pretty great in cleaning tiles. Once you scrub a little with it, your tiles will be looking shiny and as good as new! I use vinegar as my go to for almost everything

I agree with Jennifer Diaz that baking soda is the best way for your tiles. Apart from this, there are a few tips which we needs to consider to protect our tiles:

1) Dry your bathroom after every shower or cleaning.
2) Clean bathroom tile and grout weekly with a pH neutral cleaner
3) Remove mold or mildew with a stronger oxygen bleach mixture
4) Also, Do not clean your tile with acidic cleaners, such as vinegar. The acid can weaken the grout, making it crack or crumble more easily over time.

I hope it will help you

Better to use green products onto tiles available in the market.
