 Bathrooms are very important part of the house and you always want to keep it looking clean. Make sure to always have cleaning supplies on hand because bathroom tiles easily get dirty and if left untouched for a length of time will accumulate mineral and soap deposits  and mold and mildew buildup. Cleaning bathroom tiles is not an easy job, but when you use natural supplies that do the hard work, the job becomes much easier for you.  Use preventive measures to keep them clean longer so you don’t have to scrub dirty tiles as frequently.

     For homemade and natural cleaning solutions, fill a spray bottle with white vinegar, and spray   on the entire surface to be cleaned. Let the vinegar to sit on the tile for 15 minutes to kill mold or mildew.  Spray the tile surface again with vinegar then sprinkle with baking soda.  Dampen the sponge and baking soda with plain water and scrub the tile with the sponge.

Rinse in plain water, and wash off the tile to remove the baking soda, dirt and grime. Dry the tile surface with a clean towel. Click here to read more.. »
