Cleaning the floor

I have a 2002 Intrigue with these horrible white textured tile that hold dirt in the textured crevasse. I've scrubbed and scrubbed and still can't get the dirt out. At some time when I'm older and better looking I'm going to have all these tiles and carpet torn out and replaced.
In the mean time I'm looking for the best way to clean these damn things. What product, methods, or incantations have you found that work the best with out destroying the finish on the wood that abuts the tile.
Thanks
John

Visit a commercial janitor supply and see what they suggest.

Acid based bowl cleaner gets everything fast but great care for ventilation and splash control.

Add sealer after

Call a carpet cleaning service to steam the tile and extract the water. I also have a white tile in my S&B kitchen of which I have professionally cleaned about 3 times a year. I always think my floors are clean but you can really see a difference when the professional are finished. I think the trick is that they immediately extract the dirty water so it doesn't remain in the crevasses.

X2 on the steam cleaning of the tile for results. Beats being on your hands and knees. We get our carpet and tiles cleaned about once per year, it cost a C note.

I have used a brush and Clorox spray that has bleach and it did a pretty good job.

I just cleaned mine today. I have the same white tile. Simple green and a scrub brush, then wiped it down with a sponge and a bucket of clean water. Looks brand new. An old toothbrush works good for the tight spots. Good luck, it was a bit of work.
