Water and vinegar solution
Vinegar is tested as a cleaning material. And it can clean and remove stubborn stains and dirt on floor tiles. Simply, mix one cup of white vinegar and 1 gallon of warm water.
Get a chamois type mop or a microfiber cloth and soak it in the vinegar solution. Apply it on your floor tiles. You will notice that dirt and marks are removed, and your floor tiles shine again.
Also, keep in mind that you must not use rags with a rough texture in cleaning your tiles as this may scratch your tiles. And you must sweep or vacuum your floor tiles first before you mop it with a vinegar solution.
A mild detergent and clean water
Use a mild detergent and clean water in cleaning your tiles. Also, use a chamois-type of mop or rag for cleaning. Avoid using a sponge mop as this pushes dirty water in the grout and makes the grout dirty.
However, be sure that the mop does not smell bad as this may make your house smelly when you apply the mop on your floor. From time to time clean the mop and apply it again on your floor.
