How to Remove Yellow Stains From Bathroom Tiles?

By | January 20, 2020

Tiles are the most common choice when it comes to floorings of our bathrooms and kitchens. Tiles add beauty, shine and luxury to any interior decor. Its highly suggested that you follow the routine cleaning of bathroom tiles from time to time.

A bathroom is a place where there is always a presence of water or moisture. So it becomes very important for you to keep your bathroom tiles clean and hygienic. Most commonly placed tiles in the bathroom are ceramic tiles or stone tiles. Ignorance of routine cleaning and tile stain removal can result in yellow stains on the bathroom tiles. 

Some of the commercial tile cleaners can contain wax which may impart yellow colour on the bathroom tiles leading to permanent discolouration. Yellow stains on bathroom tiles can be quite ugly and obnoxious and sometimes can even lead to the complete compromise of the appearance of the tiles. In this blog, we are going to provide you with an easy way to treat yellow stains on bathroom tiles. Follow the steps mentioned below for tile stain removal at home.

Steps to Remove Yellow Stains From Bathroom Tiles

Things You’ll Need

  • Broom
  • 2 clean buckets
  • 1-gallon hot water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1-gallon warm water
  • Sponge mop
  • Clean cotton cloth
  • Clean absorbent cloth
  1. Step 1 –

    First, you need to get rid of the dirt, dust and mud present on the surface of bathroom tiles. Take a broom and sweep the floor thoroughly to remove loose dirt, mud and grime particles.
  2. Step 2 –

    Fill an empty bucket with 1 gallon of hot water and add a cup of white vinegar to it. White vinegar is a natural solvent and can help get rid of yellow stains on the bathroom tiles. Mix the solution well and ensure the vinegar dissolves uniformly.
  3. Step 3 –

    Take another bucket and fill it with hot water, use this bucket for rinsing the mop sponge
  4. Step 4 –

    Now dampen a sponge mop in the vinegar solution and use it to clean the yellow stains. Scrub and rub the affected tiles with this mop rinsed in the vinegar solution. Keep rubbing and scrubbing till the yellow colouration slowly fades away.
  5. Step 5 –

    Now rinse another plain cotton cloth in warm water only, from the second bucket. You can also pour some warm water on the tiles cleaned by vinegar solution. Use this wet cloth to rub and wipe the bathroom floor and make sure you rinse away all the vinegar and yellow wax residue from the bathroom tiles.
  6. Step 6 –

    Clean all the remaining tiles on the bathroom floors using the same process. Clean the stained tiles again from the vinegar solution and then wipe it with a wet cloth. Vinegar water solution can be used to treat almost all the stains and can provide better tile stain removal results compared to commercial solutions.
  7. Step 7 –

    Wipe all the floor tiles with a dry absorbent cloth. Make sure there is no water, moisture or vinegar left on bathroom tiles. Repeat the process if the stains persist or hire professional tile grout cleaning services.
