Black Diamond Marble & Tile Floor Cleaner is a cleaner that’s supposed to be safe for all porcelain, granite, marble and ceramic surfaces. It’s also a product that’s supposed to provide streak-free cleaning. Of course, the only way to test the veracity of these claims is by testing the product out. And that’s exactly what I did – starting with the granite counters in my kitchen.
Since the product is concentrated, I mixed in 2-ounces of it with a gallon of water and used it on my counters. I noticed that it did a really good job of cleaning the granite and it did it without leaving any streaks. I considered that a successful test, so I took it on a tour of some of the other surfaces in my home.
I used it on the tile and grout in my bathroom, used it on my vinyl and even used it on my linoleum floors. In most instances, it did a pretty good job of cleaning – if the surface wasn’t that dirty, to begin with. However, it there was a lot of ground-in dirt, then I’m afraid that this cleaner just wasn’t powerful enough to tackle it.
That’s the main problem with this cleaner. It does a gentle job of cleaning delicate surfaces, but it’s a little bit too gentle. It just isn’t going to work on heavy-duty messes. It’s just not designed with that in mind.
