If it's a hard, smooth glazed finish, you should be able to remove it with whatever it says on the stain can to thin or clean up with. Probably mineral spirits.

If it has a more porous or pitted surface, you can probably forget it.

I found this solution completely by accident after spilling 8 oz of red mahogany stain on while tile/grout walls etc.. after cursing like crazy and googeling-- which I found nothing except how to remove stain off of hands-- Olive Oil. Works absolutely wonderfully, I wiped up as much as I could with paper toweling, dumped olive oil on the floor and started wiping (while still cursing). Stain came off of everything including the white walls. Then I used really hot water and dawn dish soap to get off of oil. Good Luck!!

Try rubbing the stain off with mineral spirits or paint thinner first. If that doesn't work, you may have to try a chemical stripper that removes the type of finish you applied to your wood floors. Generally, they won't damage the glazing on ceramic tiles, but they may strip color from your grout so be careful.

Remove the old ceramic tile starting at one of the edges. The best place to begin is where the old ceramic tile butts up against a different type of flooring, such as a carpet or wood floor. Chip away at the grout surrounding the old ceramic tile, using a metal putty knife and hammer. Set the putty knife on the grout and hit the top of the putty knife with the hammer. Work your way around the first tile pegged for removal.2 Slip the blade of the putty knife under the ceramic tile after loosening the grout. Apply pressure to the handle of the putty knife and pop out the old ceramic tile.3 Chip the grout away from the tiles and pop the tiles out, using the putty knife, until you have removed all of the old tiles.4 Vacuum the area with a wet/dry vacuum to remove any residue.
