Take care of tiles!

Friday, April 14, 2017

Tile floors are a popular flooring option. They’re durable, but like all floors, they need care and cleaning. Here are some smart tips on how to clean and maintain the tile floors

  • Before cleaning bathroom tiles, run the shower on hot for five minutes to steam the dirt loose. For stubborn stains, apply a paste of scouring powder and water and let sit for five minutes.
     
  • Use just a few drops or soap-less detergent – do not use abrasive cleaners.
     
  • Vacuuming is a great way to clean tiles.
     
  • Vinegar mixed with warm water is a proven and natural cleaning agent.
     
  • If you ever need to use a stronger cleaner make sure it is neutral i.e. non-acidic and non-alkaline.
     
  • For soiled areas, you can use an all-purpose household cleaner or a cleaner made specifically for ceramic tiles.
     
  • Remove soot from kitchen tiles with a mixture of lemon juice and salt, then wash
     
  • To remove stubborn spots, scrub with a paste or bicarbonate of soda and water.
     
  • To keep the grout joints on tile countertops clean longer, wash with a solution of 1-2 tablespoons chlorine bleach in one quart of water. Dry thoroughly, then apply an acrylic sealer or three coats of lemon oil. Let dry for one hour between coats.
     
  • Remove mildew and make tiles sparkle by sponging with a solution of ammonia and water.
     
  • Do not use soap on tile because it leaves a film, which dulls the surface.
     
  • Do not use steel wool pads or similar abrasive cleaning pads. Loose particles of steel can cause rust stains in grout.
     
  • Do not use acid based cleaners. They can affect the colour of the grout and can cause tiles to dull. You should not use pure vinegar, which is an acid.
     
  • Do not drop heavy objects on tiles – they are not indestructible.
     
  • Do not wear spiked shoes if you have high gloss floors.
     
  • Use good mats at doorways to keep out sand, which may scratch tiles.
     
  • Use buffers under any furniture that may damage the surface of the tile.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Maybe the way you’re handling difficult situations is becoming counterproductive. Don’t hedge your bets simply take up something that needs attention. You stand to benefit from short term deposits. A leisure pastime could lead to great achievements and could propel you into the limelight. There is someone interested in you romantically but you have not noticed. A certain development might show you the way to proceed.
