How to Clean Small Bathroom Tiles

Bathroom tiles, no matter of their size, easily get contaminated with dirt and soap scum. However, the smaller are the tiles, the more grout lines there will be to clean. Dirt and grime trapped between the tiles ruin the look of the grout, which makes the whole tile surface looking terrible, even if the tile itself is clean. That’s why, you should take care of the grout as well while cleaning your small bathroom tiles if you want your bathroom to look perfectly clean.

  1. Open the bathroom door and windows to let fresh air in while cleaning because most bathroom cleaning products produce unpleasant fumes that are irritating to eyes and toxic when inhaled in large amounts. Cleaners Shooters Hill recommend wearing rubber gloves through the whole process of bathroom cleaning to protect your hands from the harsh ingredients of the bathroom cleaners.
  2. Spray your bathroom tiles with a cleaner specifically designed for cleaning tiles and grout. If you are looking for more eco-friendly way to clean your bathroom tiles, you can male your own bathroom cleaner by combining ½ cup of dish-washing detergent and 2 gallons of water. You can either use a sponge to scrub the solution into the tiles, or a spray bottle to spray it on.
  3. Fill a cup with hot water, then dip a toothbrush into the water and start scrubbing the tile grout. Re-dip the toothbrush into the hot water and add more cleaner as needed.  Use a sponge dampened in plain water to wipe the solution off.
  4. Apply a good tile cleaner to your bathroom tiles, then scrub the surface using a clean, wet sponge. For best results, follow the instructions on the product’s label.
  5. Dampen a sponge with fresh water and wipe down all the bathroom tiles to rinse them. Use a soft towel to dry the tile.

You would be able to remove stubborn soap scum with a natural solution of equal part white vinegar and water, according to cleaners Shooters Hill.  However, this solution is not appropriate for marble tiles, as the vinegar can damage the surface.
