How do I clean ceramic countertop tile and grout? How do I clean ceramic countertop tile and grout?
Ceramic countertop tile is easy to maintain once you have your routine down. You will want to avoid harsh chemical or abrasive cleaners so you do not strip away the sealant that protects the ceramic tile. Use a gentle soap like dish liquid on a sponge. Just be sure that you rinse and dry afterward.
As for the grout, it is a little harder to maintain. It is very porous, and anything spilled on it can leave a stain. If you do get a stain, forgo the sponge, and use an old toothbrush to gently scrub away the stain.
