nearly forty years, the only bleach I knew of was chlorine bleach. It
smells horrible and comes in those plastic white bottles at the grocery
store. My mother used lots of this bleach to keep her pharmacist
uniforms clean. She used to save the empty bottles filling them with

back to oxygen bleach and your ceramic tile. The shiny glazed surface
of ceramic tile is easy to clean. Everyone struggles with the grout,

oxygen bleach. You can use it dressed in your best dress or tuxedo and
not worry about spotting!
