Ceramic-tile floors can be cleaned easily with nothing but warm water, but be sure to sweep or vacuum first to remove any loose soil or grit. Never use a sponge mop to clean ceramic-tile floors. It will pull the dirt right into the grout tracks. This makes the floor more difficult to clean.

Hoovering or sweeping and a regular mop dipped with floor cleaner should do the job.

The tiles in my living room are ceramic, and I have a whole routine when I clean them. After trying a few different things, I finally found a solution which worked perfectly without damaging the gentle surface. First I get a vacuum cleaner with an attachment for narrow areas and vacuum the entire floor very thoroughly. Than I get a bucket of water and I pour some liquid dish soap, about half a cup of vinegar and a few drops of lemon juice. The vinegar helps remove sooth and stubborn stains more easily. Than I get a mop and I start wiping the floor with it. For the hard to reach spaces I use an old rag or a cloth. Sometimes if I have enough time, I also get a second bucket filled with water, and I use it to clean the mop after wiping the floor. This way the cleaning solution in the first bucket stays clean, and I can clean more space using it.

Home is the place we love best and grumble the most.

yup. your video is quite informative though to you. Was that your voice? The background and the font color you used are way too neutral though. It felt like a 10 min video.

Regularly sweep, vacuum, and damp mop your tile floors. A quick sweeping or vacuuming removes dirt and debris before it can become embedded in the tile or grout. Mopping with warm water and using a manufacturer-recommended cleaning product also enhances your tile’s gloss, shine, and color. One of the best floor cleaning product is water which is effective in keeping your tile floor looking great. You can also mix a cup of white vinegar with a gallon of water for a wonderfully effective, odor-eliminating cleanser.

Mix a solution of floor cleaner and warm water. You can use a clean cloth or sponge dipped in floor cleaner and water solution to wipe the tile clean. Use an old toothbrush to clean the tile grout lines.

How do you figure looking for feedback on a blog post is spam? Sound logic there.
