Bleach on Antique Ceramic Tile - Help!

My dear husband put a spray bleach product on my 1925 ceramic tiles in an outdoor fountain and now they are covered with a white deposit that will not come off. I'm in St. Petersburg, Fl. Any advice on removal without further damage and/or recommendations on area professionals for restoration would be greatly appreciated. This is Batchelder - type tile which was in vibrant colors. I am sick that the glaze may have been forever chemically ruined.

Welcome, Julie.

If you don't add that geographic location to your User Profile the information will likely be lost before we leave this page.

I've not heard of household chlorine bleach (guessing) harming glazed ceramic tiles, but our folks will need at least a photo or two to even start the serious guessing about your problem. You can attach photos from storage on your computer using the paper-clip icon above the Reply dialog box. The brand name, make and model of the bleach used might help as well.

Let's start with that.
