Porcelain Tiles Ruined

Postby ManSizedRooster » Sun Mar 08, 2009 8:49 pm

Dear All

I used Viakal limescale remover on my chrome wear and some of the spray went onto my (dark grey) porcelain tiles. Five minutes later the tiles were covered in streaky bleached lines. My question is, can stained porcelain tiles normally be repaired or if not, is it possible to replace only the damaged tiles (they're 600 x 300 on an cement board stud wall) ?
