Maintaining Tile Countertops

I have just recently installed tile kitchen countertops. I know solid countertops are all the rage now but I wanted tile. Any tips for using and maintaining them?

I would love to see a picture of your counter tops. What a neat idea!

Just keep them clean and dry in general and when the grout does start looking dark/dirty just scrub the grout with baking soda and a pinch of water and a vinegar wipe after for sanitizing :-)

Here is a picture of the countertops. Don't look at the clutter on the second shelf as I am still getting everything organized.

There is a grout sealer on the market that will help wonderfully - I know it's at Lowe's and Home Depot. Use as directed.

Some grout with synthetic ingredients will discolor with use of bleach. So be sure and get that sealer on ASAP.

good luck
