Actually it also depends on the different kinds of tiles as well like for example homogeneous tiles tend to get dirty more easily

Hope someone will find it useful. 

Mine is a resale and previous occupant placed mats in the common bathroom that traps water. Guess they don't clean often, so when the water evaporates, it leaves behind limescale.

I have tried different stuff (on & off) on this issue for the past 9 years; vinegar, baking soda, bleach, HCL. They probably work for some stains but not those in my bathroom. Recently work is slower and decided to give it another go. If don't work, may renovate it.

Recent tries was HG Professional limescale remover and acid that removes cement. I think the HG brand is probably more suitable for taps, sinks, bathtubs. It did nothing to my stains. The acid works great on the grout lines but not on the tiles.

Since the chemicals don't work, I decide to go back and try more primitive methods.... SANDPAPER. Had some leftover fine grit sandpaper (1200cw) from past projects and give it a go on the tiles. The sandpaper I use is waterproof and I cut them into thumb/finger size. Wet them and start sanding on the stains. Need to replace with new sandpaper frequently . Use a damp cloth to wipe off the stains that came off.

I am quite happy with the results; pictures attach.
