Upon entering the bathroom, tiles are the first thing that will catch your attention. Soiled tiles are not just an eye sore, they also emit negative energy and are a breeding ground for germs.  Bacteria accumulating on the tiles is harmful for the residents’ health. But you can keep your family healthy by ensuring your bathroom is hygienic. Just spend a few minutes daily to clean the tiles and you will have an aesthetically pleasing bathroom. Many find scrubbing tiles to be a daunting task. But it need not be if you know how to clean bathroom tiles.

In this article, we will share a few strategies that will help you give a pristine look to your bathroom.

Wipe off debris

Begin the cleaning procedure by wiping off dust and debris from the tiles. With a broom, sweep the dirt off the walls, or use a vacuum cleaner. Vacuuming is considered to be a much more effective tool. Besides the tiles, also thoroughly clean the cabinets, shelves, and the corners of the walls. 

Whether you use a broom or vacuum cleaner, there is a probability of some debris being left behind. You can overcome this problem with a hot shower. The vapours emitting from the shower will loosen the stubborn debris stuck to the wall, which you can then remove with a brush.

Prepare a robust cleaning solution

A potent cleaning solution is one of the most important materials in the cleaning process. The market is awash with several cleaning solutions and many of these are expensive. So preparing one at home can help you save money. Purchase baking soda and pour half of it along with lemon juice of the same amount in warm water. Mix the contents thoroughly and your cleaning solution is ready. 

Apply the solution onto the tiles

You are now ready with your cleaning solution and it’s time to apply it onto the tiles. Pour the mixture onto a clean cloth, sponge or brush. Thereafter vigorously scrub the tiles. Wipe the entire area, including corners, and grout lines. Before wiping the tiles, let the solution sit for around 10 minutes.

Rinse the tiles

After you have thoroughly scrubbed the tiles, wash away the cleaning solution with warm water. You can use either a bucket or a mop. Rinsing the tiles is a necessary step as it will help remove traces of solution and filth. 

Wipe the residue

You may have put in the required effort to rinse the tiles. Nevertheless, you need to be extra sure that there is no trace of the residue on the tiles. If you will let the solution remain on the tiles for too long, there is a possibility that water marks may appear. This will ruin the bathroom’s image. To make sure that does not happen, wipe away all residue with a dry cloth or brush. Ensure that no part of the wall is left untouched.

Tools required for the task

The right tools are an important part of the tile cleaning process. Warm water is one of the most important substances. Warm water breaks down dirt, and dissolves grime and grease much more effectively than cold water. This makes it easy for you to wipe off the stains. A bathroom cleaner, bucket, sponge and mop are a few other materials needed to clean the bathroom. Use rubber gloves to protect yourself from germs and chemicals.


Cleaning the tiles regularly is necessary as it will prevent the buildup of grime and keep your bathroom hygienic. But for most people, cleaning can be challenging. You can make it easy and enjoyable by following the right process and using the ideal materials. When cleaning tiles, there are a few things that you need to consider. Ensure proper ventilation by keeping the doors and windows open. When cleaning tiles, you may inhale dirt, stains or other irritants. A ventilated bathroom will ensure that this does not happen. If you are using a particular cleaning product for the first time, do not apply the entire solution over the tiles. First, test it on a small part of the tile. If there is no damage to the tile, the product is safe to use.

We are confident that these points will guide you on how to clean your bathroom.
