slippery tiles

Our floor tiles get very slippery when they are wet. Is there anything that I can use to make them unslippery ?
TIA,
Pat

Re: slippery tiles

First of all, you need to make sure you are cleaning your ceramic tile frequently and properly, or it can significantly contribute to the ceramic tile being too slippery. Use the tile cleaning solution and scrub the floor with a brush on an extended handle. Then use a wet and dry vacuum to pick up all the dirty water.

Sprinkle baking soda on it and let stand for a few hour and sweep up and mop it should absorb any thing slick on floor. The more texture, the easier it gets dirty, the more frequent you have to clean it and the more difficult it is to clean. Good Luck!

Thanks. I'll try what you said. The tile really doesn't have too much texture. It is very shiney.
Thanks again
