Keep It Natural — What You’ll Need to Clean Your Bathroom Tiles
When it comes to cleaning, sometimes the best and most effective solutions are the natural ones. These are ingredients you’ll have hanging around your home and they will offer a simple, quick way to brighten up your bathroom tiles.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Liquid detergent
Keep the proportions to three parts baking soda, one part white vinegar and one part liquid detergent.
Mix All Your Ingredients Together
Before you begin scrubbing, mix all the ingredients to create a paste-like mixture. The baking soda provides a natural abrasive, while the acid in the vinegar will help to break down any grease and buildup on your tiles. The liquid detergent is a surfactant that will help to spread the mixture, while also helping to break down grease. You’ll never look back once you’ve discovered how simple and effective this mixture is.

Scrub Away with a Sponge
Using a soft sponge, spread the mixture all over the tiles, paying special attention to the gaps and grooves between them. Leave the mixture to sit. This is an important part — removing the mixture immediately means you aren’t letting it work its magic. The ingredients need some “dwell time” to be truly effective.
After about five minutes, scrub away at the mixture and then rinse with a shower-head. It’s as simple as that. You’ll be amazed at the results — your tiles will look good as new and you’ll be proud to show off your bathroom.
