If the dog chewed up an ink pen on your ceramic floor or your Kindergartener drew a picture on your ceramic floor, don’t panic. Ink can be removed from glazed ceramic floors in almost every case with a little care and attention. Even unglazed ceramic tile can be cleaned in many cases.

  1. Mop the floor with your usual floor cleaning solution but double the concentration.
    • For example if you usually use one cup of floor cleaner to a 2 gallon (7.6 L) bucket, use 2 cups.
    • Mix the cleaner with hot water.
    • Rinse the floor with clear water.
    • If the ink stain isn’t gone, proceed to the next step.
  2. Scrub the stain with a scrub brush and some scrubbing cleanser approved for use on ceramic sinks or appliances.
    • You may want to scrub any stained grout with a stiff toothbrush.
    • Rinse floor once it’s scrubbed. If the stain is still there, proceed to the next step.
  3. Buy a package of methylene chloride from a hardware store that carries commercial cleaning supplies.
    • Mix the methylene chloride with flour until it forms a thick paste.
    • Using rubber gloves, apply this paste to the stained area.
    • Let it dry on the stain for 12 to 24 hours. (Keep pets and children away from this chemical.)
    • Scrape it off after the time has passed.
    • Rinse the area and examine whether any remnants of the stain are still there.
    • If the stain is almost gone you can try this method a second time. If it hasn’t worked, go to the next step.
  4. Sand the stain with a piece of fine sandpaper. This is best reserved for unglazed floor tile. Sanding glazed tile will remove the glaze and leave a dull spot in the flooring.
