    btw, my tiles are glossy type, have tried a few detergent in the market but don't seem to work. anyone with similar experience and would like to share i would very much appreciate.

    ps: for those who are renovating or moving to a new house soon, think twice if you spend lot of money on those beautiful or pretty stuff(tiles, flooring ceiling..etc), coz maintenance is a night mare !! i myself is a lazy person......

    so far I have come across one type that is really strong that can clean dark stain off my homogenous tiles... it really work but I used once. Cos have to work the chemical well on the surface and it seems quite poisonous.... Qik Clean from Aimax
    once you start off one tile... you have to finish the whole room.... cos it is really obvious....

    Wow. What did you do to your tiles?

    LpH maybe too strong for tiles. Only recommended cos u mentioned chemical stain.

    Maybe you can try CIP 200 from Steris....

    Buy those labelled as tile cleaner. It's diluted hydrochloride acid, it's effective for cleaning the tile gaps which are white cement filled. Dilute per instructions as it dissolves the cement binder. You don't want to lose all the grouting. It's safe on ceramics.

    For the surfaces use Clorox or bleach. Vinegar is too mild.

    you can try those ntuc mosaic tile cleaner? make sure your tiles are dry first because the cleaning solution works best on dry tiles. try on a small area first.

    or you can ask your contractor to help you buy some industrial strength cleaners.

    Just buy the cheap rice vinegar from NTUC and concentrate it by warming (not boiling)

    You should try the baking soda option too.

    Last option is to get car battery, pour out the liquid into a container (preferably a ceramic one) and concentrate it by warming (again not boiling). Makes sulfuric (or was it hydrochloric) acid.

    You maybe want to try the bigger Home-Fix stores as they have a section dedicated with cleaning aids for granite, stones, etc. Perhaps you can find something there.
