serves/makes: 1 gallonrecipe id: 17541
1 cup baking soda
1 cup ammonia
1/2 cup vinegar
14 cups warm water
Pour baking soda into a clean gallon-size plastic jug. Add ammonia, vinegar and warm water to fill. Swish the jug to mix ingredients before it is completely full. Cover jug tightly, label. Smaller pump-type containers can be filled from the jug for small jobs.
To Use: Spray solution directly onto tile and wipe with a damp sponge or the kind of scrubbing pad made for Teflon pans.
If grout or tiles are especially soiled, make a paste of 2 tablespoons baking soda and 1 tablespoon tile cleaner. Brush it onto the stains with an old toothbrush. Let paste remain for 5 minutes, then scrub off and rinse.

THIS IS AN AWESOME RECIPE! I bought the house I have now about 2 years ago and it had ceramic tile in the kitchen/foyer/bathroom and I tried everything on the market to get those little "grooves" free of dirt. Nothing worked....I called floor instilation places to see if they could reccommend a solution to clean the floors---too expensive. So I turned to the trusty internet and found this recipe. I just did 1/2 my floor a few minues ago to do a side by side comparison and WOW is all I have to say! The grout was originally a lite beige color and since I've owned the house, I turned it to a lovely shade of black...but no more! Its back to the original color. I just cant believe it. Thanks so much for this recipe!!!
