GGCL Guide: How to clean white shiny porcelain floor tiles

The white shiny porcelain floor tiles have a durable, high-gloss surface created during manufacturing from a glass glaze that is baked onto the porcelain surface. Taking care of and cleaning these tiles isn't much different from cleaning any ceramic or porcelain tile. When the dirt accumulates on the glazed surface, the tiles loses its shiny also the glazed tiles are more prone to the scratches and the scratches can show up more easily on the glossy surface. Washing with the right tools and working to prevent scratches from normal wear and tear keeps the porcelain shiny and clean.


Sweeping or vacuuming the floor tiles or the porcelain countertops and walls thoroughly, especially in the corners is the first step of cleaning. Remove all the furniture or rugs from the porcelain tile floor so that you can sweep beneath them. Prepare a mixture of white vinegar and water solution using 1/4th cup of white vinegar mixed in 3-4 liters of water. Alternatively, you can also use a cleaner specifically made for washing glazed porcelain that doesn't contain soap or oil and is nonacidic. Wipe down porcelain tile walls or counters with mop or sponge soaked in the prepared solution.


Rinse the white shiny porcelain floor tiles with clear water and a clean dry piece of cloth to wipe them. Form a soft paste containing equal parts baking soda and borax with a little amount of water. Apply the paste gently into any stains or tough dirt. Borax and soda makes a mild abrasive that removes dirt buildup without scratching the tile glaze. Take another bucket of clean water and rinse the white shiny porcelain floor tiles, use a clean dry piece of microfiber cloth to wipe dry the water so as no water spots remain.
