Recycled Tile Cleaner
Place some leftover soap in a pail with a gallon of water, and then add a cupful of vinegar and mix. Use this mixture with a mop for floor tile cleaning or a sponge for counter tops. Since vinegar has antiseptic properties it not only cleans stains, it kills germs as well. If the vinegar’s smell is too strong for your tastes then you can add some left over lemon to the mixture or essential oils that you may have in your cupboard.
Homemade Stain Remover
Combine 2 cups vinegar with 1 cup baking soda; place the solution in a clean used plastic bottle. You can use this stain remover by applying it to the tile surface that has the stain. The baking soda and vinegar will loosen the stain, grime or dirt from your tiles then you can finish it off by scrubbing the surface with a brush.
