What is Limestone Tiles made of and what for?
Limestone tiles is a sedimentary rock commonly used for flooring, wall tiles, counters, shower surfaces, and outdoor paving. While limestone can have a long, useful life (see the Great Pyramid of Giza), it is fairly soft. As such, it can be easily scratched, damaged by heat, and etched by acidic substances. Improper care and cleaning can wear on the stone, and damage may need to be professionally repaired

Limestone Tile and grout Cleaning DIY Tips.
Gather your limestone cleaning supplies.
To clean limestone floors, you will need a vacuum, broom, or dry mop. You should have a sponge mop ready, too. A mild dish soap can be used for this project, but you might want to pick up a soap designed specifically for limestone. Lastly, you also need a bucket and some soft towels. Of course, if it’s time to reseal the surface, pick up some sealant, too. If you have stains on the limestone in need of removal, be sure to grab some white flour and hydrogen peroxide.
Vacuum, sweep, or dry wipe the limestone surface.
This may sound strange, but you can vacuum limestone floors if you turn off the spinning brush. However, be very careful that you are not scratching the surface. Vacuuming does a great job of removing sand and dirt from cracks and crevices. Otherwise, use a broom or dry mop to clean up any dirt and debris. For counters and walls, use a dry, soft cloth to remove as much dirt as you can. Any particles left on the limestone during a wet cleaning can inflict a multitude of scratches into the surface, so try to get it all.
Wet cleaning of the limestone tile.
To clean limestone, all you need is a bucket of warm water with a couple tablespoons of soap mixed in. Gently mop the stone floors, or wipe other surfaces, with the mixture. Take your time on this step, and allow ample time for the soap to break down the filth.
Cleaning limestone stains.
Removing stains may require a poultice to draw the stain out of the stone. You can make a poultice by taking 3/4 cup of flour and adding little amounts of hydrogen peroxide until you have a paste. Apply the paste to the stain and allow it to dry, which may take as long as a day or two. Once dried, carefully remove the dried paste using a soft edged scrapper. Another option is to use a product specially made to clean and maintain limestone, like MB Stone Care MB-1 Floor Cleaner. This product is pH balanced, yet designed to remove stains and grime from stone. To be safe, find an area that no one will see and test the effect first.
Rinse your limestone tile.
Aside from the fact that soap left on the limestone’s surface will attract dirt and speed up the accumulation of filth, it also creates a film that can leave your stone looking dull. Start by dumping out your mop bucket, rinsing it thoroughly, and refilling it with clean, warm water. Mop over the surface with the fresh water. What do you see? Any frothy, lathery sections indicate that your job is not done yet. Repeat this step until it appears that the soap residue has been eliminated.
