How to Effectively Clean Grout
Apr 1, 2021
If your bathroom or kitchen has tiles, chances are you’re looking for an effective way to clean the grout between them. The grout that surrounds each tile not only serves as the glue that holds everything together but also as a frame to highlight the beauty of the tile. That’s why it’s important to keep it clean. Here are some ways to effectively clean grout:
Start with Plain Water
Grout can usually be cleaned using warm water and a stiff-bristled brush. Simply use a spray bottle to spray the grout lines and use the brush to scrub in a circular motion. Then, let it dry.
Use Equal Parts Vinegar and Warm Water
For heavier dirt and mild stains, use a mixture of vinegar and water. Fill a spray bottle with half vinegar and half hot water, spray it on the grout, and wait five minutes. Afterward, scrub clean using a stiff brush and let it dry.
Use Baking Soda Paste and Vinegar
A stronger DIY solution involves baking soda paste. After applying the paste to the grout, spray over it with the vinegar solution. Once the mixture stops foaming, you can wipe everything away with your brush and warm water.
Hydrogen peroxide can be used to tackle tougher stains on grout. You can either pour it directly on stains or apply a paste made from baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide can be found at your local drugstore.
Use a Commercial Cleaner
Some commercial grout cleaners are available to the public. However, be cautious about which one you choose. Certain commercial cleaners contain harsh acids, solvents, or chlorine bleach. You’ll want to avoid those and instead opt for one that has less harmful ingredients.
As a last resort, you can use bleach to get rid of tough stains and heavy dirt. Sparingly cover dirty grout with chlorine bleach. Do not make a routine of cleaning grout with bleach, as long-term use will erode it.
