Suction cups serve as convenient devices to secure wall hangings or supply hooks where none exist. Rather than sustain potential damage to a bathroom tile wall, you can extend storage space with the use of suction cup hooks. When suction cups are adhered to the tile for prolonged periods of time before being removed, they often leave suction cup marks behind. These minor stains can be due to chemicals in the suction cups or moisture-loving substances, such as mildew, growing behind the suction cup. Home remedies clean these stains and return your tile to clean condition.

Things You'll Need

  • Sponge
  • Baking soda
  • Spray bottle
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • Clean cloths

Sprinkle baking soda onto the damp sponge. Scrub the site of the suction cup mark on the tile and leave the baking soda to sit on the surface for a minutes. Baking soda is a mild abrasive and is safe to use on tile surfaces.

Fill a spray bottle with 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1 cup water. Spritz the diluted vinegar onto the tile wall where the baking soda has been applied. The mixture will bubble and foam, working to loosen the stain left by the suction cup.

Dampen a clean cloth and wipe off the baking soda and vinegar combination, along with the suction cup mark. Dry the bathroom tile surface with a clean, dry cloth.
