Can you use Clorox on tile floors?
Consequently, is it okay to use bleach on tile floors?
For mopping floors (ceramic tile, vinyl, linoleum—not marble or other porous surfaces that aren't safe for bleach), mix up a solution of ¾ cup bleach added to 1 gallon of water (or ½ cup if you are using New Concentrated Clorox® Regular Bleach2).
In this way, how do you disinfect tile floors?
Ceramic and Porcelain
- Mix 1 gallon of water with 1/2 cup ammonia, 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1/4 cup borax.
- Pour your disinfecting mix into a spray bottle to spray tile walls, or soak a mop in the solution to spread it across tile floors.
- Rinse the tile surface with cool water to remove the disinfectant.
While porcelain tile boasts exceptional durability, there are few products and techniques you should take pains to avoid: Never use a product containing ammonia or bleach (or any type of acid-based cleanser); these can alter the tile color and/or stain the grout. Never use oil-based detergents or wax cleaners.
