Machines used for scrubbing floors, and abrasive cleaners can end up scarring the glaze and even damages the grout in between tiles. Instead, it’s okay to use brushes or brooms meant solely for cleaning ceramic tiles. Just make sure its bristles are firm enough to get the job done without any scratches.

An all-natural sponge is great to use for cleaning wet wall tiles as moisture accumulated on the walls can lead to mold developing on the grout. A sponge not only removes mold, but also keeps the place dry to prevent any mold development.
