A cleaner using a neutral pH allows you to wash stone shower tiles without causing etching or dulling.

Spray the shower with stone cleansers or non-acidic soap scum cleaner.

Cover the whole shower using the cleanser and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.

Wipe the walls clean using a damp sponge, rinsing and wringing from the sponge frequently until the soap scum is gone.

Scrub limestone mosaic-tile flooring using a nylon-bristle scrub brush, since these tiles can take a more aggressive cleaning.
