scrubbed with wire brush one tile at a time! tried steamer, ripped the cloth to shreds!  tried powerwasher all to no avail.

have bought a sealer today from weldom starwax exterior tile sealer, and a deep cleaner, the guy said to clean then do 2 or 3 coats, will give it a whirl

you may need to look at a mildly acidic wash (tile or brick cleaner, thinks like flash etc will probably be too mild?) and a scrubbing brush on your hands and knees in small sections and then dry that area (or the dirty water will remain and stain again) and then move to the next area, once youve done it, cleanit more frequently to avoid any build up.

In our case it's the tiles, which have a slightly rough surface to them, hence making them non slip.

Is it the tiles you can't clean or the grout? Tiles should be easy unless they are porous (which is the issue with grout, especially if its light coloured).

We have cream interior tiles, non slip which are impossible to clean too. They are right through out sitting/diningroom/ kitchen and seem to shred whatever we use to mop them. We have bought a steamer which is marginally better but is beginning to wreck the end....so I would be interested to know too ?
