For more periodic deep cleanings, mix a pH neutral onyx safe stone cleaner with a mixture of warm water and mild soap. Dip a sponge or mop into the solution and clean your tile with brisk, circular strokes. Once you have finished, go over the floor once more and wipe off soap residue with a mop dipped in plain water. For heavy duty stains, sprinkle a few drops of an onyx safe stone cleaner onto the stain. Allow to soak for three minutes, then rub and wipe clean with a dry cotton cloth.
