Ceramic Tile Repair Video

If you are lucky enough to have extra pieces of your tile flooring, you can replace the broken or cracked tile. This involves matching the grout around the tile that is being replaced. The first step in doing this repair is to clean the surrounding grout with oxygen bleach. Mix some of the oxygen bleach powder with water and apply it to the grout. Let it work for 10 - 15 minutes. Lightly scrub the grout to complete the cleaning. That is just the beginning of the work to replace that tile.

An alternative method is to fill the crack with clear two part epoxy glue. Use a toothpick to fill the crack up to the level of the tile. Once dry, paint over the crack with a fine artist's brush. After the paint has dried, coat it with clear urethane to keep the dirt out of the paint.

Try the alternative method to quickly repair that ceramic tile crack. It is quick and easy compared to replacing the tile completely.

"WOW, that's all I can say! I purchased your product last week to clean the grout on my 800 sq. ft. of tile, and it looks as clean as the day we moved in eight years ago. I must admit, I was a little skeptical when I ordered the Stain Solver, but after having used it, I know I will always have some on hand and look forward to cleaning my wood deck this spring. This is by far one of the best products I have purchased in many, many years. Thanks Tim!" - Ed, Macomb, Michigan
Message from Tim:

Years ago while researching a column about cleaning decks, I discovered the wonders of Oxygen Bleach. It is perhaps the 'greenest' cleaner I know of as it uses oxygen ions to break apart stains, dirt and odor molecules. There are no harsh chemicals, and it works on just about anything that is water washable.

I decided to create my own special blend using ingredients made in the USA. In fact, the raw materials in the active ingredient are food-grade quality registered with the FDA. I call my product Stain Solver. I urge you to use it to help with cleaning your ceramic tile grout. You will be amazed at the results!
