One great feature of tile is that it can be maintained with clean water and a microfiber cloth. If you’re resolving to ‘go green’ in the new year, our Certified Green Cleaning Specialist makes these suggestions for occasional cleaning:

–Liquid Castile Soap — derived mostly from plant-based oils. Add 1 part soap to 4 parts warm water for normal cleaning. This is a good all-purpose cleaner and disinfectant. Apply soap solution with a microfiber cloth, then rinse with clean water.

— Hydrogen Peroxide 3% solution — will remove stains, disinfect, and treat some mold. Fill a spray bottle with 1/2 peroxide and 1/2 warm water. Spray on surfaces and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. Use caution with colored grout as peroxide is a natural bleach. Wet surfaces prior to application.

— Borax -commonly found in the detergent aisle at the grocery store, this can be used as a scouring powder and odor neutralizer. Dilute 1/4 cup of Borax in a gallon of water to clean hard surfaces. Rinse with a clean cloth.

— Microfiber cloth – Uses thousands of tiny scrubbing surfaces to pick up grime, grit, and grease.

Be sure to test any new cleaner in an inconspicuous area first.
