1)  Best Of Helpful Hints: The Best Of Hints

For The Bathroom: Ceramic Tile:

* Turtle Wax (car wax) is an excellent tile cleaner and refinisher. Rub in well with a soft cloth, let stand for 10 minutes. Do not let it dry too thoroughly. Polish with a clean cloth or better yet, buff with an electric buffer. Your tiles will sparkle like new.

* Try cleaning with a solution of sal soda concentrate, the strength depending on the extent of the soil. To the stubborn cracks, apply the sal dry with a stiff brush.

* Clean the recessed spaces between tiles with an ordinary typewriter eraser or rub with a white nail pencil.

* Make a paste of baking soda and bleach and scrub with a small brush.

* Also, before you start cleaning the bathroom walls, fill the tub with the hottest tap water available. Dirt loosened by steam will come off faster.
