Most of the times, cleaning the tiles turns into a frustrating job. You keep cleaning it but there’s one thing that stands between a grimy tile and one that pops out of the box: the grout in between.
Maintaining a clean environment by disinfecting the tile on walls, floors, especially counters, is essential for our health. While tiles are easy to clean regardless the cleaning product you’re using, grout is very porous and it demands special cleaning to remove all that grime stuck on it.
However, since I’ve moved in with my fiancée, I’ve learned that cleaning is a piece of cake if you choose the right products. And the most effective cleaning products aren’t the expensive ones: by using the right household ingredients, you’ll get the desired results in no time.
One step closer to clean that grimy and porous grout:
- Baking soda
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Dish soap
- Stiff bristle brush
Ok now! Arm yourself with a pair of gloves and get back to work.
- The first step is to clean the grout very well with hot water and start scrubbing on the grout line with a toothbrush.
- The next step is to mix 2 parts of baking soda with 1 part of hydrogen peroxide and apply this solution over the grout line. Let it work for 15 minutes and then give it some nice scrubbing too lift up any dirt stuck between the grout pores.
- The last step is to mix dish soap with hot water to remove all the grout cleaner. You can use a sponge to ease your job.
Tip: in case the grout has grease residues you can add in the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixture a few drops of dish soap.
