This stuff is awesome. I've already used up my first batch cleaning - got the stuff to make another bottle tonight. I live in military quarters and the tile is all white - I drive myself nuts keeping it clean. This is my answer. Great on my counter tops, stove top, etc. Thanks for posting.

WOW!!! This really works! I mixed up some last night-started cleaning and couldn't stop!! It works great an appliances, without leaving streaks. I have marble tiles around my fireplace that looked clean until I used this on them. I don't think I need to buy 409 or Windex ever again. Thanks for sharing!
