Tile Floor Cleaner: heavy duty cleaning solution

Cleaning tile floors, especially in high-traffic areas like bathrooms, can be a challenging task. However, with the right DIY tile floor cleaner, you can make the process more manageable. Here’s a recipe for a heavy-duty tile floor cleaner that’s effective in removing grime and stains:


  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup washing soda
  • 1 tsp liquid dish soap
  • 2 gallons very warm water


  1. Mix the 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar, 1/4 cup of washing soda, and 1 tsp of liquid dish soap in the bottom of a bucket.
  2. Add 2 gallons of very warm water to the mixture and mix well.
  3. Mop the tile floor with the cleaning solution. There should be no need to rinse the floor afterward, but if you notice a soapy residue, you can wipe it down with a damp towel.
  4. Allow the floor to air dry.

This heavy-duty tile floor cleaner is designed to cut through grease and grime, making it effective for bathroom floors and other high-use areas. Just remember that it’s not suitable for wood laminate floors, as it may leave a soapy residue. For laminate floors, it’s best to use a different cleaning solution that is specifically designed for them.
