Whiten Tiles In A Snap With This Amazing DIY Cleaner
  • Out of all the rooms at home, the bathroom is possibly the hardest one to clean because it is the most frequently used and it has so many different surfaces -- including tiles. Regardless of shape or size, these ceramic blocks gather dirt and grime that can be tough to scrub off. To help you out, we found a recipe for an all-purpose cleaner that will get them sparkling in no time. Check it out below: 


    What you need:

    • 3/4 cup of baking soda
    • 1/3 cup of lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons of salt
    • 3 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid
    • 1/2 cup of white vinegar

    1. Pour all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Stir until everything is blended well.

    2. Use a funnel to transfer it to a spray bottle. Make sure to use a quality container as this mixture is quite thick.


    3. Shake well before use. Pour a small amount directly onto the surface you're cleaning, scrub with a sponge (or a brush for tougher stains) and rinse with water.

    Tip: Leave the cleaner to soak for a few minutes before scrubbing to help loosen stubborn stains.
