How to Remove Salt Stains From Ceramic Tile
Keeping your ceramic tile floors clean can be a very difficult task. This task can become extremely hard during the winter time. Those little white salt stains that are usually associated with winter ice clean-up can be a real eyesore on your tile. Fortunately, there is an easy removal technique that will have your floors salt free and gleaming in no time.
Fill a bucket with one gallon of warm water.
Add 2 tbsp. of ammonia and 1 tbsp. of borax to the bucket of warm water.
Wet the head of a micro-fiber mop with the cleaning solution from the bucket.
Move the wet mop over the surface of the stained area to clean the tile.
Re-wet the mop and repeat step 4, if needed.
Wipe the area with a clean, damp cloth. Allow the ceramic tile to air dry.
Things You Will Need
- Microfiber mop
- 1 gallon warm water
- 1 tbsp. borax
- 2 tbsp. ammonia
- Clean cloth
- If you do not have a mop, wash the floor by hand. Use a circular motion when hand washing and rinse the floors quickly to avoid water lines or streaks.
- Do not use a sponge mop to clean a tile floor. The sponge absorbs slowly and causes dirt to be pushed across the floor instead of absorbing it.
