Traditional and subtle in appearance while being highly durable and low maintenance, porcelain tile is a flooring option found in many homes and businesses. When you drop a pencil on the flooring or a child uses the porcelain tiles as a drawing board, you need to remove the pencil marks so your tile can maintain its clean, cared-for appearance.
Rub a pencil eraser over the marks. In most instances when you have light pencil marks, this is all that is required to remove the marks.
Run a cleaning eraser under tap water to moisten the eraser slightly, and rub over heavier pencil marks. These work just as a pencil eraser, removing the pencil residue without harming the porcelain tile.
Moisten a paper towel with water and a drop of dish soap, and wipe over any leftover pencil marks.
Wipe the area with another damp paper towel to remove any leftover cleaning or pencil residue.
