Cleaning Bathroom Tile
A bathroom contains a diversity of surface types, and not all cleaning products work on
every one of them. Cleaning bathroom tile can be hard work; especially if we are trying to clean the whole

replaced, so you can keep your bathroom shining.
You can use a variety of cleaning products that can be found in the markets, but vinegar,

bathroom while you are cleaning because the fumes are never good for you.
Shower curtains are another source of problems, because they are many places for all sorts
of soap scum, grime, calcium deposits, mold and mildew. You can solve your problem by spraying it with vinegar, and
the mildew will disappear. Wax all surfaces to create a less comfortable place for mildew and mold to grow. Now
that the tiles are sparkling clean, they will make the entire bathroom look cleaner, free of dirt, mildew and
