When baking soda is used in combination with certain substances glycerol is formed. When it is mixed with vinegar it produces a by product called carbonic acid.

Hence this could be another great way to use sodium bicarbonate with another product to remove stains and dirt from tiles in the bathroom.

Removing Soap Scum Using Sodium Bicarbonate:
Mixing lemon with sodium bicarbonate can also be extremely useful for removing stains and dirt on commodes and tiles which are used in the bathroom.

All that you need to do is to wash away the solution and you will find that it would have removed stains caused by soap scum quite effectively. However, the exercise has to be repeated regularly to have the desired impact.

Sodium Bicarbonate With Mild Detergents:
Though you could be regularly making use of detergents and cleaning agents to remove dirt from your bathroom tiles, you could try and add sodium bicarbonate to it for getting even better results. The corrosive property of sodium bicarbonate combined with the cleaning prowess of soft detergents could be very helpful in cleaning dirt and grime from tiles in your bathroom. The best point is that it helps the tiles to retain its originality and does not damage or corrode it leading to fading of the tiles.

Baking Soda

You can use a combination of sodium bicarbonate, vinegar and commonly available ammonium solutions. The three can be extremely useful in removing even the toughest of dirt and accumulated grime. It will be particularly very useful in removing dirt that is accumulated in the crevices or the space between one tile and another. All this it does without damaging the tiles one bit. Therefore it can be repeated over regular intervals.
