Save

Marble floor tiles are a beautiful addition to any home, but one that requires specific care, especially when it comes to cleaning and stain removal. Spills, dirty shoes and flooring installation are just a few ways that adhesive can wind up on your marble floor tiles. Your floor is not ruined, however. Remove adhesive from marble floor tiles with a common household product.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish washing liquid
  • Quart-size spray bottle
  • Sponge
  • Soft towel
  • Soft cloth
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Pour 1/4 cup dish washing liquid into a quart-size spray bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle with cool water. Shake the bottle to mix the contents.

  • Spray the cleaning solution on the area with the adhesive. Wash the area with a sponge. Rinse the area with cool water and a sponge. Dry with a soft towel. Dampen a soft cloth with rubbing alcohol. Rub the adhesive with the rubbing alcohol until it is gone.

  • Wash the marble floor tiles again with the dish washing liquid solution to ensure all the rubbing alcohol is removed from the surface. Rinse the tiles with cool water and a sponge. Dry the marble floor tile with a soft towel.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wear gloves to protect your hands when working with cleaning solutions.
  • If rubbing alcohol does not completely remove the adhesive, repeat the entire process using mineral spirits.
