Gunk, stains, and dirt on ceramic tile countertops either in a bathroom or kitchen not only make them unhygienic but also unpleasant to the eyes.

Here is how to get your ceramic surfaces in a sterile condition and glistening at all times.

Easy methods to try out right away.

1. Steam the gunk out of their hiding places.

This method is both effective and safe for members of your household. Simply get your steam cleaner out as well as attach a pointed nozzle to it and also a brush head, if you have one handy.

Carefully direct the nozzle towards the collected gunk and press away at your steamer.

This might not get all the dirt out of the way, but it will loosen the majority and make it easier to clean with other preferred cleaning agents.

2. The combination of baking soda and bleach is a win-win strategy.

The right proportions are 3/4 cup of baking soda mixed with 1/4 cup of bleach.

Mix the two together until you come up with a thick paste-like consistency. Apply to the collected gunk and leave it there for 15 minutes.

Right after that, get your brush head out and scrub the countertop. Apply a little more of this paste again right after scrubbing and let it sit for 15 minutes.

Afterward, proceed to rinse off with your shower head or wipe with a warm, damp rag. Do this continuously until you see a shiny surface staring back at you.

While at it, protect your hands by wearing rubber gloves. Also, open up your windows to help get the smell out and put on safety glasses to protect your eyes from getting irritated.

3. Baking soda and vinegar will most certainly do the trick too.

To use this method for your cleaning, 2 tablespoons of baking soda and just enough water to form a thick paste are what you should start with.

The next thing to do is to get a brush with hard enough bristle. It can be a gunk brush; otherwise, a toothbrush will get the job done as well.

Dip this into your mixture and scrub away at your countertop in circular motions. When you feel satisfied with your scrubbing, get a spray bottle with mixed vinegar and water in equal proportion.

Spray this in the area you just cleaned and let it foam for half an hour. Get your brush head again with your baking powder paste and scrub away.

Right after, rinse, and you will have a sparkling countertop staring at you.

4. Feel the magic of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

This can help a great deal to get your countertops in a sterile condition.

Mix some baking soda with hydrogen peroxide to get a thin paste. Dip your brush into it and scrub away at the affected areas. Feel free to pour some more hydrogen peroxide onto the surface you are cleaning to help you obtain maximum results.

The merit of this method is that it will get the dirt out, make your surface glitter, as well as kill all molds and bacteria present.

Now, who wouldn’t want a bit of freshness in their house with the attendant squeaky clean surfaces? Certainly, not us and hopefully not you. In that case, don your work clothes and scrub away, you will thank us later.
