A clean shower tile.
It is easy to clean your shower tiles, but it may take some time.You can either use a commercial product to clean or you can make your own cleaner out of ingredients you already have in your home.The tiles should be pre-treated with water-vinegar.Use a stiff bristle brush and apply a baking soda paste to the tiles.It is a good idea to dry your tiles four to five times a week.
Step 1: The shower should be running on a high temperature.
