Granite floor tiles are constructed of durable, scratch-resistant natural stone. Ultra-hard and lustrous, granite flooring will give any room in your home an elegant and sophisticated style. Granite floor tiles come in a wide range of colours, such as white, grey, black, brown and jade, so you'll have no problem finding the ideal shade for your home. Keep your granite flooring shiny and looking its best by polishing it regularly with natural and homemade cleaning solutions.

Add 1 part rubbing alcohol, 3 parts water and 2 drops of pH-neutral dish soap to a plastic spray bottle.

Screw the top onto the bottle and gently shake the mixture to create a uniform cleaning solution.

Spray the solution directly onto the granite tiles, working small sections at a time.

Wipe the solution dry using a clean and soft chamois cloth, which will buff and polish the surface of the granite.

Fill a plastic bucket with a solution of 3 cups of water to 1/4 cup baking soda. Stir the mixture well. Make as much of the solution as you need to polish the entire granite floor.

Saturate a sponge in the baking soda solution and squeeze out any excess liquid.

Rub the sponge across the granite floor in a circular motion to gently clean and polish the surface.

Dry and buff the floor using a clean and soft chamois cloth.
