Terracotta Tiles

Terracotta floor tiles are a great way to add color and variety to any home. You can use common household cleaners to clean terracotta tiles, like window cleaner or a variety of floor cleaners. Just be sure not to use anything with strong fumes or chemicals when cleaning your terracotta tiles because these can be hazardous to your health.

Linseed oil is a great natural choice to help you get rid of stains from your terracotta tile, because linseed oil is a very porous substance. Permeable materials don’t attract stains as easily as other substances, meaning that you can get rid of a stain quickly by simply mopping up the water. But keep in mind that your terracotta tiles will be soaked in linseed oil for a period of time, so make sure you’ve got plenty of linseed oil on hand and ready to wipe away any stains.


To get really great results with your terracotta tiles, you can try using a combination of water and linseed oil. All you need to do is moisten a rag with water and rub the rag over your terracotta tile, getting as much as moisture as possible into the surface of the material.

Then, blot the dampness away with another clean rag. The saturated surface of the terracotta will draw out any remaining moisture and seal it up. If done on a regular basis, this technique can dramatically improve the look of your terracotta tile and help you get more value for your money.
