    How can I remove stains from kitchen tiles?

    Kitchen Fitters

    I have decorative tiling along the walls of my kitchen which have become stained over time. Some stains are very difficult to remove and some I’ve not been able to remove.

    These are ceramic tiles and are several years old (since fitting) and I would love to get them looking new again.

    Is there any best methods that would remove these stains completely?

    These are mostly stains from food and drinks, if this makes any difference.

    "Hi there,

    If you have polished finish ceramic tiles, you could remove the food stains with CIF Cream.
    Try in a small area first to see if you get the desired results.
    1- Place CIF Cream on the affected area
    2- Mix with warm water, until it becomes a foamy paste
    3- Let it sit for 1-2 minutes
    4- Scrub with a scouring pad in circular motions.
    5- Rinse with warm/hot wter.
    6- If it doesn't come out completely, repeat the process.

    Hope it helps,"

    "Hi I am presuming you have been trying kitchen cleaning sprays, degreasing agents ? If these haven’t worked then it suggests that your tiles maybe porous and the stains are imbedded in the tile ?"
