It doesnít really come off easy at all. Why is it only on one tile though? Got any recommendations for cleaning it off? Thanks!

It isn't just the one tile..... it's slightly on an adjacent one which means it's something that happened there. Is this tile on the wall or floor ?

But it does come off? If its not the tile then something is on the tile, have you attempted to clean it with anything?

I guess I should rephrase that it disappears when waters on it and reappears after. I just have no clue why it’s so centrally located to that spot in the shower. I’ll wipe it with water and the cloudiness comes back with in 5 min when the water dries

My guess is that the glaze may have come off and that minerals from the water may have gotten into the tile. Does the tile feel 'different' than the others when it's dry? getting the minerals out may be very hard to do.
