tile problem

The tile floors in my house have such a glossy sheen that they are slick as ice. Is there a cleaning product that I can use on them to help make them more non slip but not completely take away the glossy sheen?

I live in a townhouse with glossy tile floors as well. Almost a year ago I slipped in the kitchen and fractured my arm. It was bad news bears! At the time I didn't know that you can make tile non slip using certain chemical treatments, but you can bet that since then I've had my landlord purchase some and treat the whole house. It's a product called Johnny Grip. You can buy it online.

There are quite a few ways by which you can solve this issue of reducing the slippery texture of tile. One such way may be laminating them that would provide the gloss and make it a little less slippery.
