Clean and shiny ceramic tile can improve the appearance of an entire room. Giving your tile a sparkly finish doesn’t have to be labor intensive, time-consuming or expensive. Whether it’s a floor, countertop or backsplash, polishing ceramic tile is an easy task that only costs a few cents.

1Mix 1/4 cup of white vinegar with one gallon of warm water in a large bucket. If your tiles are especially grungy, increase the vinegar ratio to 1 cup for each gallon of water.

2Dip a mop into the vinegar solution, squeezing out the excess liquid. Start at one end of the room, pushing the mop across the floor until you have mopped the entire floor. For dirtier floors, dip the mop into the vinegar solution frequently. Immerse a clean rag into the solution to clean and polish ceramic tile countertops, backsplashes or other items.

3Empty the vinegar mixture from the bucket and fill it with club soda. Dip the mop into the club soda and mop the whole floor. Use a clean rag to wipe down walls, countertops or other ceramic tile fixtures. The club soda polishes your tiles to provide a shiny finish.
