3) Rinse the Floor

Once you’ve mopped the floor with a floor cleaner, rinse the tiles with plain water. You can use warm water for this. Don’t forget to wring the mop frequently.

4) Clean the Grout

The grout is the space between tiles. Over time, it starts turning black and can diminish the beauty of your glossy floor tiles. To clean the grout, mix 1 cup of baking soda with 2 tbsp. of water. Apply a layer of this paste in the grout. Let it rest for 10 min. Then, scrub the paste gently with an old toothbrush. This will help you get rid of any dirt and grime. Finally, rinse with a damp cotton cloth.
