Using red tiles is a fresh, funky and unique way to decorate your home. Red tiles come in a variety of sizes and materials such as ceramic and vinyl. No matter what type of red tile you have, in time, the tile will become dirty and require a thorough cleaning. A dull and dingy red tile floor can make the entire room look neglected.

  1. 1

    Sweep the red tiles with a broom to remove dust and dirt. Sweep the debris into a dustpan.

  2. 2

    Fill a spray bottle with equal parts water and household bleach. Spray the grout -- the lines between the red tiles -- with the mixture.

  3. 3

    Scrub the grout with the mixture and toothbrush. The bleach-water solution will remove stains, mould and mildew, and brighten the grout.

  4. 4

    Wipe off the mixture with a damp cloth.

  5. 5

    Fill a bucket with equal parts water and white vinegar. Saturate a sponge mop with the mixture. Hold the sponge mop over the bucket, and wring out the excess liquid.

  6. 6

    Scrub the red tiles with the saturated mop. Begin at the area of the floor that is farthest from the entrance. Scrub in a back-and-forth motion while working toward the entrance.

  7. 7

    Allow the vinegar-water mixture to air-dry on the red tiles. Point fans in the direction of the tiles to speed up the drying process.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear rubber gloves when working with bleach to prevent skin irritation.
  • Never mix bleach with ammonia or products containing ammonia. The resulting fumes are toxic.
