How Removing Stains?

Use bleach, hydrogen peroxide, or rubbing alcohol on blood stains. Blood stains can be removed by dipping a dishcloth or sponge into a solution with ratio 1:49 bleach to water. For instance, concoct a mixture of 2 teaspoons (9.9 ml) bleach and 1⁄2 US quart (0.47 L) of water. Alternately, dampen a dishcloth or sponge with hydrogen peroxide. Dab the stain lightly until it is gone. Using rubbing alcohol will also disinfect your stains.

Eliminate organic growth using bleach. To rid your ceramic tile of mold or mildew, mix a solution of ratio 1:49 bleach to water. For instance, use 2 teaspoons (9.9 ml) of bleach and 1⁄2 US quart (0.47 L)) of water.

Remove coffee, tea, or juice stains with chemical cleaners. Wash the ceramic tile with dish soap and hot water. Remove the leftover discoloration with either a solution of 2 teaspoons (9.9 ml) of bleach and 1 US quart (0.95 L) of water, or with hydrogen peroxide.

Use ice on gum, tar, or wax stains. Place some ice cubes in a resealable plastic bag. Place the bag over the sticky stain marring your ceramic tile. After five to ten minutes, check the consistency of the stain. It should be frozen. Scrape away as much as possible, and wipe the rest off with paint thinner.

Use club soda on grease stains. If you’re trying to remove a stain of oil or grease, wet a dish rag with club soda. Rub the stain using a gentle circular motion. If you don’t have club soda, you could simply use a nonabrasive floor cleaner.

Use bleach on ink. Ink or dye stains require treatment with bleach. Soak a clean dishcloth with bleach. Lay the cloth over the stain. Check it every 60 seconds or so until the stain disappears. Don’t leave the bleach-soaked cloth on the ceramic tile too long. The alkali in the bleach can cause whitish water-soluble salts to collect on the marble tile.
