    How to clean glass tile at waterline

    Good evening members,

    Does anyone have any recommendation for a good glass tile cleaner? My glass tile at the waterline is dull and has lost some shine. I'd like to clean it. My glass tile is from NPT but before I go investing into the chemicals in the link below I'd love to hear from you guys.

    Are you trying to clean or seal the tile?

    Is it just haze or thick calcium scale on the tile?

    Can you post a picture?

    JoyfulNoise,

    I'm trying to clean the tile first. I'm open to a seal but need to get it clean. It's a haze.

    The cleaner product looks like some kind of dilute acid. If it's haze have you tried a 4:1 (H2O:muriatic acid) dilution in a spray bottle? What color is your grout?

    Unfortunately my grout color is black.

    I use a magic eraser once a month. Cuts the haze. A couple times a year I use a cleaning pumice stone to remove any calcium build up, or whatnot.
