Bathroom tiles easily get dirty as they are constantly exposed to dirt, soap scum and mould and mildew build-up. Cleaning bathroom tiles is seldom enjoyable, but when you use natural supplies that do the hard work for you, it becomes much easier. Once your bathroom tiles are clean, use preventive measures to keep them clean longer so you don't have to scrub dirty tiles as frequently.

Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar, and spray the vinegar on the entire surface to be cleaned. Allow the vinegar to sit on the tile for 15 minutes to kill mould or mildew.

Spray the tile surface again with vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda onto the Magic Eraser sponge. Dampen the sponge and baking soda with plain water.

Scrub the tile with the sponge. The combination of vinegar, an acid, and baking soda, an abrasive, works to remove soap scum, dirt and mould and mildew from tile surfaces.

Rinse the Magic Eraser in plain water, and wash off the tile to remove the baking soda, dirt and grime. Dry the tile surface with a clean towel.

Tip

After cleaning your bathroom tile, wipe it down with baby oil to keep it free from dirt stains. Wipe down your shower tiles with a towel or squeegee after each time you shower to prevent moisture from building up and causing the growth of mould and mildew.
