Homemade Grout Cleaner
Here’s what you need:
- 3/4 C baking soda
- 1/4 C bleach
- an old toothbrush for scrubbing (please don’t use one you’re going to put in your mouth later!)
Mix the baking soda and bleach together in the bowl until it forms sort of a thick paste. Thenapply the paste to the dirty grout lines and scrub with your toothbrush.
I don’t have any pictures of the process, but it’s pretty simple. Just keep applying and scrubbing until you run out of cleaner or until you’ve done all your grout (or until you’re tired of scrubbing!) Tile and grout cleaning
Make sure to leave the paste sitting on the grout for 5-10 minutes before washing it off so the mixture can get in there and clean.
I scrubbed all the grout in our shower in one go, starting at one side and working my way around. So it was like 25-30 minutes before I went back to wash off the first bits I had done. But you don’t need to wait that long if you’re in a hurry, or just doing a small area. 5-10 minutes will work great. Scottsdale az 85266
To rinse the paste off, I turned on the warm water in the tub, used a cup to pour water over the tile, and used my hands to wipe away the pasty bits. My hands were already pretty gross from the cleaning and scrubbing part, so it didn’t bother me at all to wipe it down after by hand. But you can use a washcloth or rag if you’d rather.
Rinse everything off super well and you’re done!
Remember, grout does sometimes turn darker when it’s wet. So if you’re not totally impressed with how sparkling white your grout is right when you finish rinsing it, wait a few hours until it dries! Tile and Grout Cleaning Scottsdale az 85266
