quarry tile floors

we have a tan quarry tile floor in at rental unit in the kitchen in our Brooklyn brownstone. It was put in about 28 years ago and is still ok ( not chipped or cracked) but it is very badly stained. Any suggestions has to how to get the stains out?

Re: quarry tile floors

Try white distilled vinegar and warm water solution (ratio: 1 cup of vinegar to 1 gal of water).

BTW, use only white distilled vinegar.

You can add a cup of baking sode and 1/4 cup dish detergent to the solution, to get faster results.

Use a mop or a rag to apply over the tiles. For old tiles, you may need to do it more than once.

Results are not for sure, but what do have to lose?
