Re: Ceramic Tile Shine


You have floor as your trade. You should be able to answer this question your self. I use the ceramic tile shine they sell in lowes. Works great. Make sure you use the correct ceramic tile shine sponges also.

That works as well. Silicone lubricant works well also.

Re: Ceramic Tile Shine


True story, I have a buddy who was quite the Smart a$$ when he was in the Corps his Gunny told him he wanted "his" billit floor to be shinny, so Mark being the kind not to disappoint, put ARMOR ALL over top Johnson's paste wax. Proving you Can give then what they ask for and still get Office Hours
