Cleaning Ceramic Floors

During mopping, use two mop buckets: one for the cleaning solution and one to rinse your mop. The dirt and sand from your mop will wash out and settle in the rinse bucket, keeping the cleaning solution cleaner longer.

To remove a water-based stain from a marble surface, mix _ cup of flour and add 1 tsp. of hydrogen peroxide. To remove an oil-based stain from a marble surface, mix _ cup of flour and some dishwashing soap (a few squeezes of the bottle will do the trick!). Pour warm water into the mixture until the consistency is thick and no longer runny. Spread the substance over the stain and cover it with clear plastic wrap. Tape the wrap to the floor and let it settle overnight. Remove it in the morning and let the mixture dry. Scrape the mixture off the marble once dry.
