Ceramic Tile Floors-Care and Cleaning Care
If unglazed, seal with special sealer. If glazed,
seal mortar between tiles. If not sealed or glazed, it
can be stained by grease. Glazed tile is easily scratched like porcelain enamel.
The best and easiest way to clean a ceramic tile
floor is to scrub it with an electric floor washer or
polisher-scrubber. The thorough cleaning action should brighten the tile and joints. Use a solution of 1/4 cup low-sudsing detergent, or 1-2 tablespoons of either washing soda or tri-sodium phosphate or commercial floor cleaning powder in 1 gallon water. Rinse well.
When further treatment is needed, particularly for
the grout, apply a solution of water and chlorine
bleach (liquid or powdered). Let it stand for 20 minutes or so, then mop the floor, rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. Then wax the floor for protection and easier care.

"It is no secret nowadays, particularly to women, that many American males, even those of middle-aged appearance, wearing suits and holding down jobs, are in fact, incredible as it sounds, still small boys inside." -- Thomas Pynchon
