Diane writes “I have moved into a barn conversion and the kitchen floor has lovely natural tiles which have a pretty uneven finish. They look great but how do I clean them??? If I use an old fashioned mop it shreds and sticks and I cant use a flat sponge type mop as it sort of skids over the surface. Would an electric steamer be the answer??”
Our initial response is:
The best answer I can find is to use a white vinegar mixture (try ½ cup vinegar to 1 litre (1½ pints) of water. Wet the tiles and then scrub with a hard brush. If you have a large area this may not be so easy. You may have to use a long handled yard type broom. Or maybe even a soft bristled broom may work.
I’ll be really interested to hear how you go with these tiles.
