Stain Solver and Partially Clean
Some of my Stain
Solver got on my floor tiles
rather than just on the
grout. The tiles effected have a lighter color than the rest of the
tile. Is there some way this can be repaired to look like the
rest of the tile? Thanks. - Carol

I had this issue with another woman about two months ago. We
traced it to her using floor cleaning products in the past that didn't
actually clean the floor and left thin layers of the cleaning product
with residual dirt. She had multiple thin layers of dirts on her floor,
but she actually though the floor was clean.
It's "impossible" for
Solver to remove the
glaze or pigments from floor tile. Ceramic tile is one of the most
durable flooring materials made. That's why you see them in restaurants
and other commercial buildings.
That being said, here's what I
want you to do:
Get a 12 oz regular glass and
fill it with hot water. Take
one tablespoon of my Stain
Solver and dissolve it in
this water. Stir
till completely dissolved.
Take two clean dry paper towels
and fold them over on each
other so they completely cover a floor tile about 8 x 8. Pour half the
glass of solution onto the paper towels while they are on a tile making
sure the towels are completely saturated. Let sit for an hour.
At the end of the hour, remove
the paper towels and add more
solution to the tile. Take a stiff scrub brush and scrub the tile.
Immediately rinse the tile with clear water and dry with paper towels.
The tile you worked on should
look like new.
