Tile and Grout Cleaning: Tips You Can Use
You want your tile in your bathroom or kitchen to always look pristine, but your porous and stain-prone grout may make it very complicated to keep these areas clean. Here are some simple tips you can use to keep your tile and grout looking shiny and new every day. It is easy to learn how to clean grout.
Small grout stains can be dealt with using an old toothbrush or smaller brush and warm water. You don’t need any special soaps or cleaning agents, just a bit of scrubbing power. Get your tile wet and begin scrubbing your grout in a circular motion until your stains have been removed and your tile and grout look shiny and clean. Sealing tile grout helps prevent more stains.
Larger stains require a bit more effort, but don’t need any major cleaning aids to get the job done. You can mix lemon juice and baking soda together to create a grout paste to lift and remove stubborn stains made by soap and other residue. It’s easy to learn how to clean grout when you have homemade remedies to guide you. Again, use a small brush or old toothbrush to gently lift unwanted stains from your tile and grout after you have applied your baking soda and lemon juice paste. Don’t scrub too hard, however- this paste can be abrasive on smooth tile, so be gentle in your approach. You can also use a clean cloth to wipe away your cleaning agent to reveal a clean shine.
Larger stains can also be cleaned with equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Simply spray the affected tile and grout with the homemade, nontoxic spray, then allow it to set for 5 minutes. Wipe away the solution with a soft cloth or scrubbing brush.
Stubborn stains can be cleaned with hydrogen peroxide, which you can find at your local drugstore or grocery store’s first aid aisles. Spray hydrogen peroxide on stains and allow to set for a few minutes, then scrub away the solution. You will have clean grout that you can love.
Sealing tile grout can keep your stains from returning. With these helpful homemade tips, you can always have healthy tile and grout that you will love to show off.
