Floor and wall tiles are 2 different beasts. Education is a b*tch. Common sense?

Cheers, Steve.

We have a large shower with textured tiles, with one wall of the shower made of stacked stone with a waterfall, (which is ten times more textured than the tile), and they are extremely easy to clean with a product from Dow Corning or Johnson and Johnson...I forget which company makes it but its called Scrubbing Bubbles and is available in any S and R Membership Shopping Outlet. You just spray it on the floor, walls, glass shower doors, sinks, tubs, mirrors, etc...any bathroom surface and let it sit for a very brief moment and then wipe it off and rinse and you are done!

On the stone waterfall wall, we don't even wipe it off...we just spray it on, (it foams up), and then wait a minute or two and then rinse it off with the shower head and the stone wall looks awesome and is squeaky clean!

This stuff takes off any soap scum, mineral build-up, dirt, slime, mold, mildew, etc. with ease and NO scrubbing...just spray on and wipe off!

A very good quality product made in the US and available here in the Philippines and it works great and is specifically designed for use on any bathroom surface...

I have very hard water here and I can scrub the deposits off my tiles with just a kitchen scrubber soaked in vinegar, then rinse.

We have the same Grandmother? lol

Vinegar also works if you burn something on a pan. Just put some ( or a lot) in water let soak overnight and then warm the water before you scrub it clean.

I use some vinegar in the window washer fluid on my car as well.
