    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.

    What material is the tile made of? Is it a ceramic tile or some other material?
