To clean your patio like a pro, first, sweep the tiles to remove large debris like leaves and twigs. You don’t want to introduce a mop and water to areas where dirt is lying around. Otherwise, you would just spread mud across the deck. For the mopping solution, mix one gallon of hot water, half a cup of white vinegar, and one tablespoon of Dawn dish soap. Swish your mop in the mixture and squeeze out any excess water. Then, scrub the floors as usual.
If you don’t have a mop, put the vinegar-dish-soap-water solution into a spray bottle and mist your Runnen tiles before wiping them down with a microfiber cloth. The acidic properties of vinegar aid it in dissolving oil, dirt, and germs, while the enzymes in dish soap lift bacteria and grease, plus give the solution its satisfying suds. Use this homemade cleaner to mop your patio monthly to keep the outdoor area welcoming all year.
