Mexican Tile Floor Care: Do Not use Vinegar or Fabuloso to Clean Your Mexican Tile Floor it Will Ruin the Finish, Fabuloso recalled by CP

Mexican Tile Floor Care: Do Not use Vinegar to Clean Your Mexican Tile Floor it Will Ruin the Finish. Vinegar is an acid. Proper weekly maintenance is just as important as getting the right installer in order to extend the life of your Mexican Saltillo tile. "No Mop & Glo and no Endust, no Spic and Span." Would you put any of these things on your car? Don't use them on your Mexican tile." FABULOSO CONTAINS ETHYLENE OXIDE, At room temperature, ethylene oxide is a flammable colorless gas with a sweet odor. It is used primarily to produce other chemicals, including antifreeze. In smaller amounts, ethylene oxide is used as a pesticide and a sterilizing agent. The ability of ethylene oxide to damage DNA makes it an effective sterilizing agent but also accounts for its cancer-causing activity.
UPDATE Feb 8, 2023... ABC News FABULOSO RECALL: 4.9 million Fabuloso cleaning products recalled due to bacteria risk. A number of popular Fabuloso cleaning products were recalled Wednesday by the Colgate-Palmolive Company due to risk of bacteria contamination, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. About 4.9 million units -- as well as about 56,000 units in Canada -- of various Fabuloso Multi-Purpose Cleaner products were impacted by the recall, according to the CPSC. The affected products were produced from Dec. 14, 2022 through Jan. 23, 2023, according to the company. "We are voluntarily recalling certain Fabuloso products because a preservative was not added at the intended levels during manufacturing," Fabuloso said in a statement on its official recall website. "With inadequate preservative, there is a risk of bacteria growth in the recalled products. The recalled products can contain Pseudomonas species bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water."
Do not use vinegar and water a technique often promoted by tile setters after a tile installation and grouting. The vinegar will remove the leftover grout haze but continued use of vinegar, an acid, is harmful to tile and grout. The acid will eat right through the grout.

The best place to find neutral cleaners is the hardware or tile store, not the supermarket:
-- The floors should be swept often. The combination of sand and leather soles has the same effect as sandpaper. The floor will be more difficult to clean and keep clean.
-- Use a damp mop at least once a week. Your best tools are a 32-ounce cotton rag mop, a rolling mop bucket and a neutral cleaner that doesn't contain acid, nitrates or phosphates. Be sure to rinse well with clean water.
