Even a glaze said to be food-safe often is not. John Hesselberth and Ron Roy in their book Mastering Cone 6 Glazes demonstrate this by placing a lemon wedge on a food-safe glazed piece of ceramics. Within hours the glaze is discolored from leaching out of the chemicals. Unfortunately the food-safeness of a glazed or handpainted ceramic tile is difficult to determine unless you can speak with the maker because of the fact that many glazes said to be food-safe are not. Which is one of the great advantages of handmade tiles - the ceramic artist can tell you if it is food-safe.

Ceramic tile is used to decorate walls and floors fireplaces and showers. It is manufactured with naturally-available products including clay and quartz sand. Clay has the property of restricting water flow and is used in the construction of dams bridges and canals. Ceramic is also used in the preparation of engineering materials such as transistors in electronic devices. There are many varieties of ceramic tiles and they differ in size shape design pattern and make and some are even produced specifically for certain rooms including the bathroom the kitchen and the living room.

Dust and other chemicals can make families sick and cleaning tile helps to remove at least some of the bacteria and disease from the home. If oil or any other petroleum product spills on the tile floor it should be cleaned up right away as the tiles can become very slippery and dangerous to walk on. Clean ceramic tile saves a family from accidents as long as it is dried adequately after Ceramic tile cleaners are designed specifically to clean ceramic tile especially the surface and are available in liquid form. Cleaner is also available as a disinfectants Care should be taken while cleaning tiles as chemicals no matter how harmless can be dangerous if used improperly.

Be careful though with areas that will get much use such as around a fireplace where logs will be placed or fireplace tools will be used. Low fire tiles and glazes can crack or chip much more easily than stoneware and high fire glazes. Also if it is an area that will require frequent cleaning high relief may prove troublesome. For ceramic walls in dry areas not subject to much physical contact most any type of tile and glaze is adequate. For wet areas flat tiles low relief tiles or even high relief tiles can be used so long as they are not in a hazardous place that a body can inadvertently come into contact with them.
