How to Clean Varnish Spilt on Ceramic Tile

    Rubbing Alcohol Method

    • 1). Place paper towels over the varnish and blot up as much as possible if the varnish is still in liquid form. Place a plastic scraper under solid varnish and scrap up as much as possible.

    • 2). Wet a cloth with rubbing alcohol. Rub the rubbing alcohol into the varnish on the ceramic tile.

    • 3). Wet a cloth with warm water. Rub the area to remove the rubbing alcohol and varnish.

    Laundry Detergent Method

    • 1). Place paper towels over the varnish and blot up as much as possible if the varnish is still in liquid form. Place a plastic scraper under solid varnish and scrap up as much as possible.

    • 2). Mix 1/2 cup liquid laundry detergent with 1 gallon warm water.

    • 3). Dip a soft-bristled brush in the mixture. Rub the mixture into the varnish on the ceramic tile.

    • 4). Wet a cloth with warm water. Rub the area to remove any soap residue and varnish.

    Heat method

    • 1). Place a plastic scraper under solid varnish and scrap up as much as possible.

    • 2). Use a heat gun on the lowest setting or blow dryer on the highest setting. Place as close to the tile as possible without touching it.

    • 3). Use a damp cloth to lightly rub and absorb the varnish as the heat liquifies it. Continue until most of the solid varnish is removed.

    • 4). Complete the steps in Section 1 or Section 2 for residue removal.
