Dear Vandana

Cleaning of bathroom tiles depends upon the severity of the mold or dirt.

1.Start with spraying the bathroom cleaner from top to bottom. Wet the tiles and spray the cleaner solution.
2. Scrub the entire area with a scrub sponge. Try to focus on the surface of the tiles and not the grout. Scrub the tiles in circular motions and put good bit of pressure. The edges of the tiles need to be scrubbed in straight lines. Wash off with warm water.
3. If you can still see deposits around the tile surface, then try to ascertain the source whether it is due to soap deposits, hard water or the iron content of the water. Most of the soaps give way to a milky film, high iron content in water will cause brown stains to develop and hard water is known to cause green stains.
4. Try to scrub the deposits with white vinegar. Use raw vinegar and make sure to wear gloves as vinegar may cause itchiness. If the tiles become shiny and squeaky clean, then your task is complete.
 If deposits are still there, purchase a bathroom cleaner. There are several special bathroom cleaners for fighting iron and rust deposits.
If this also fails, then try to use a toilet bowl cleaner. Toilet bowl cleaner is known to be very caustic and hence should not be left on the surface for too long. Apply it and scrub it immediately. Avoid applying it on the plumbing fixture as the toilet cleaner may corrode it.
5. For cleaning the grouts, spray some liquid bleach, leave it for some time and wash off after light scrubbing. You may also use a commercial grout cleaner.

You don't have to replace your tiles just to make it sparkling clean. Bleach is enough for it. Just let the bleach stay on your tiles for few minutes and scrub it.

1.Dip a stiff brush in a kerosene and warm water solution to clean bath and shower mats.
2.
Clean after a steamy bath or shower. The walls, fixtures, etc., will be much easier to clean because the steam will have loosened the dirt
3.
For light stains, rub with a fresh cut lemon, For dark stains (like rust) rub with a paste of borax and lemon juice
4.
To avoid bathtub rings, don't use oily bath preparations. Use a water softener if you live in a hard-water area
5.
Rubbing alcohol will clean the caulking around bathtubs. It also shines chrome and glass. Liquid chlorine bleach (1/4 cup to one gallon) will also clean caulk
6.
Clean the toilet bowl while you're away by pouring in 1/4 cup bleach and leaving it until you return
7.
If you have a small bathroom or a tile entrance and don't have time to bother with a scrub bucket, just use an all purpose spray cleaner and a damp sponge for quick clean up
8.
To remove mildew from the corners of the tub, dip cotton balls in bleach and let them sit, when you finish cleaning the bath, remove cotton and rinse well
9.
Remove soap and hard water buildup on shower tile with tile cleaner. Then apply a good paste wax and buff with a dry cloth to deter future water spots.
10.
Rub glass shower doors with a white vinegar-dampened sponge to remove soap residu
11.
Wipe a stainless steel sink with vinegar or a touch of oil on a cloth to make the sink sparkle

Post subject: Use mild detergent to clean

Bathroom flooring need maintenance from grems, stains, and wet floor.
Use some mild detergent to wash the floor and basins every alternate days.If possible maintain good ventilation so that bathroom remain dry .
Anti skid, germ free, stain free and scratch free tiles are available in market now which may help more.
