I would suggest muriatic acid diluted with water 1 to 1. Be careful since it is a strong acid. Ehow.com would likely have directions on how to do it.

About this time in a thread, someone should be asking "what kind of tile?" "Where is it located?"

Try Coca-Cola. It used to do the trick on my dads rusty car bumpers.
