Thanks for the home recipe! I've also used ammonia instead of liquid soap and was pretty happy with the results. I always enjoy using home recipes instead of purchasing products because you can save so much more money. If you're interested in professional tile cleaning services, you should check out

The vinegar in the tub and tile cleaner is consitered to be corrosive to grout. As for the liquid soap mentioned in another post, the best choice is a vegi based natural liquid soap.

Hm, "liquid soap" does not exactly make for home made, eh? :)

Thats usually what I do minus the vinegar and baking soda. I usually just use some borax and elbow grease. I can't wait to see what you come up with for nasty rolled vinyl flooring.
