Brick tilesBrick is very porous and quickly absorbs grit and grime, requiring regular cleaning, Begin by dry sweeping, followed by mopping and cleaning the tiles with a vinegar–water solution (one part vinegar with 15 parts water). Alternately, mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda or borax to 4 litres of water, for mopping. To attack stubborn stains and dirt, use a stiff-bristled nylon scrubber.
