I have a 1952 ranch with gray tile and mint green tub/commode in the full bath and gray tile with a pink commode in the half bath. So yes I have cleaned it and it's not that hard. I just redid the tiled wall behind the shower fixtures per a broken pipe but we saved most of the tile and used a few new ones that the original home owner had stashed. I find it weird that people buy period homes then totally take the personality out of them. In ten years your new bathroom will also be "dated" and will look like everyone else's updated baths. Your new bath is nice but has no personality. I hope you were able to preserve some of your period bath fixtures and at least donated them to Habitat for Humanity's Restore or to Goodwill. My biggest pet peeves are the DIY show's where they go in with a maillot and glee and destroy perfectly good items that could have been reused.
