MYO: Ceramic Tile And Grout Cleaner
1 c Baking soda
1 c Ammonia (sudsing or
Non sudsing)
1/2 c Vinegar
14 c 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 and keep out of the reach of
children. Smaller pump-type containers can be filled from the jug for
small jobs--make sure these containers are labeled and kept safely away
from children as well. To use: Spray solution directly onto tile and wipe
with a damp sponge or the kind of scrubbing pad made for Teflon pans. Hint:
If grout or tiles are especially soiled, make a past of 2 tablespoon baking
soda and 1 tablespoon Ceramic Tile & Grout Cleaner (recipe above). Brush it
onto the stains with an old toothbrush. Let past remain for 5 minutes, then
scrub off and rinse. Note: This solution contains ammonia: do not mix with
anything in the bathroom containing bleach or dangerous fumes could result.
Yield: 1 gallon This recipe safely removes the soap film that frequently
forms on tile surfaces and between the tiles. A more concentrated paste of
the cleaner can be made (see Hint) and left to clean stubborn stains on the
grout.
