Glaze Worn Off Ceramic Tile

Does anyone know if tilex soap scum remover or X14 soap scum remover can remove the glaze of glazed ceramic tile? Some of the 9 year-old glazed tile in my tub surround and shower surround have lost the glaze and there are vertical streaks on the tile from either water or the cleaning products. I can't figure this out. I usually have cleaned once in 10 days with one of these products. Has anyone had a similar experience?

If you could give us a pic it would help...but any acidic cleaner used contunously has the potential for eating away at the glazing,that's why for daily cleaning we like to use a ph neutral cleaner.Now, what's the chance of the streaks being hard water, or mineral wash off from well water, or the cleaning of the walls.Maybe a spot cleaning with clr, or a similar cleaner for hard water might clean it off.Now, have you been using scrub pads, or something that could have been wearing away the glaze?
