Q: What should I use to clean my 6th Avenue ceramic tile?

Thanks, Penny

A: Hi Penny,

Use a pH neutral cleaner manufactured for cleaning ceramic tile.  Your grout should be sealed and then, when cleaned, the pH neutral cleaner won’t harm the sealer or grout.  If you were to use a cleaner that is somewhat acidic, over a short amount of time, the tile’s glaze may dull and the grout will become etched and discolored.  This means that vinegar, which is also an acid, even if diluted in water will cause the same negative outcome.  Marble, Travertine, and Limestone are all composed of calcium carbonate, so they will also be etched and become dull if cleaned with that same vinegar and water scenario.  Walker Zanger recommends and offers for sale Oceancare’s pH Neutral Tile and Stone Cleaner to help with this problem. Thanks for your question!
