I know this may sound really silly but before we moved into our new home, I hired someone to do a complete cleaning. The bathrooms looked amazing- so so shiny!!!

I have tried to get the cleaning crew to give me the name of the product they used but they have never gotten back to me. Its not that they did not want to but just plain procrastination on theiur part. All I know from when I spoke to them that it was a low odor product that you can buy anywhere- not a commercial cleaner. I suspect it may have been something like clorox (in the green bottles).

So after 3 months the shine is wearing off and I really want to have my bathrooms shining like that again. I have tried different things and definitely still not solved the mystery .

Can anyone recommend a product they are really pleased with and that leaves a long lasting shine on the ceramic bathroom tiles??? Please. please.

As weird as this sounds-
My cleaning contractor used Lysol toilet bowl cleaner on the tile floors. It worked surprisingly well. Even on an occasional grout stain.

Ivory dishwashing liquid does a good job. Since it's not soap, it removes soap film. Careful of the slipperiness though.

Will it leave a shine though?

The product that I use is Tough Task Super Clean. Buy it in the automotive section of Kmart or walmart. It's actually a degreaser but works on lots of household items. It's the best thing I've ever used.
