All the tricks for cleaning kitchen tiles

Kitchen tiles are subject to dirt, stains and encrustations that require effective cleaning. From specific detergents to natural cleaners such as white vinegar and baking soda, we will explore methods for removing stubborn dirt. You will also learn to prevent dirt build-up and keep tiles shiny and beautiful. With these tips, you can revitalise your tiles, creating clean and inviting surroundings in your kitchen.

How do you clean kitchen tiles?

Cleaning kitchen tiles is essential to keep the room looking clean and attractive. Start by brushing or vacuuming the tile surface to remove crumbs and surface dirt, and do not forget to use a special tile cleaner or an all-purpose cleaner diluted in warm water. Apply the cleaning solution to the tiles and leave it for a few minutes to loosen the dirt. Always use a soft bristle brush or a non-abrasive sponge to scrub the tiles, concentrating on the dirtiest or stained areas. Make circular movements to remove dirt effectively.

You can use natural remedies such as a mixture of white vinegar and water or a paste of bicarbonate of soda and water to remove more stubborn stains or encrustations. Rub gently and rinse thoroughly.

Rinse the tiles thoroughly with clean water to remove any detergent residue. Finally, dry the tiles with a clean cloth or let them air dry to avoid water stains.

To prevent the accumulation of dirt and stains, immediately clean any spills or stains on the tile surface. Clean tiles regularly to prevent the build-up of dirt and stubborn stains.

How do you remove grease from kitchen tiles?

Removing grease from kitchen tiles is essential for maintaining a clean and sanitary environment. Start by cleaning the tiles with warm, soapy water. Apply the solution to the tiles and clean them with a sponge or soft cloth to remove the layer of grease. Use a special kitchen degreasing detergent or powerful multipurpose cleaner. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and apply the cleaner to the tiles, leaving it to work for a few minutes before scrubbing and rinsing thoroughly.

White vinegar is also a powerful natural degreaser. Mix white vinegar and water in equal parts and apply the solution to the tiles. Leave for a few minutes, then rub with a sponge or cloth. Rinse well with warm water.

A final option is cleaning with lemon juice and its degreasing properties. Juice a lemon and apply it directly to the tiles. Leave for a few minutes, then wipe with a damp sponge or cloth and rinse.

Take note!

Here are 5 tips on how to effectively clean kitchen tiles:

  1. Brush or hoover followed by multipurpose cleaner: start by removing crumbs and surface dirt with a brush or hoover. Then, use a multipurpose cleaner specifically for tiles diluted in warm water. Apply the solution to the tiles and wipe with a sponge or soft cloth.
  2. Baking soda, white vinegar and steam: for stubborn stains or encrustations, create a thick paste by mixing baking soda and water. Rub it gently with a sponge and rinse well. White vinegar, on the other hand, should be mixed with equal parts water. Once the solution has been applied to the tiles, scrub and rinse thoroughly. Alternatively, use a steam cleaner to loosen and remove grease from tiles. Steam the surface according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Regular drying maintenance: wipe the tiles with a clean cloth to avoid water stains. Clean the tiles regularly to prevent the accumulation of dirt and encrustations.
  4. Grout: clean the grout between tiles using a soft bristle brush and white vinegar diluted in water or a special grout cleaner.
  5. Sealing: apply a protective sealant to the tiles to facilitate cleaning and preserve their shine.
