|Comment||I am really grateful to you Mr.Perry for sparing time to answer my query and for expressing your sympathy for the loss. I will certainly try and communicate to you the results. I was afraid of using Baking Soda for the fear of tiles losing their shine. Presently, even with faint ash marks, the shining of tiles has not reduced. Your observation regarding "etching" is absolutely correct. The most difficult spots are the shoe-marks of those, who walked on the floor while the ash was hot. However, I find that the faint marks are becoming less visible with every washing.With warm regards, Arvind|
