Is there a special cleaner for bathroom tiles?
Yes, when cleaning your tile floors, you should use a sponge with some vinegar mixed into the water. Rubbing the area also helps.
Does carpeting stain easily?
It does depend on what kind of material is underneath the carpet. Carpet that has been glued to the subfloor may be easier to clean than carpets that have loose fibres.
How do you know if a cleaner works?
One good way to tell is by smelling the cleaner. If you smell something chemical, it probably doesn’t work well.
What about soap and water?
Soap and water is effective, but not as efficient as cleaners made specifically for your tiles.
Do all kinds of cleaners work equally well?
No, different types of cleaners will perform differently depending on the type of surface they are used on.
Can I use salt to remove a mildew stain?
Salt can help if you apply it directly to the affected area and leave it for 30 minutes or so before scrubbing.
How much bleach should I mix with my ammonia solution?
Bleach usually needs at least 3 parts water to 1 part bleach, which is one cup of ammonia in a gallon of warm water. You might want to do a small test first to make sure that it’s strong enough.
What about using baking soda and lemon juice instead of ammonia and water?
Baking soda absorbs odors, but it won’t be able to take out deep-seated stains. Lemon juice is acidic, so it will eat away at the dirt, but you need a lot more than just a drop or two.
