How to clean grout on tile floor – How do I clean the grout in between my tiles? It’s really grimy and really dirty. What do I do? It’s a great question. We have tiles in our kitchen, bathrooms, friend hallways, showers etc. and grout is always getting dirty and it is hard to clean. I’m going to show you a great trick on how to whiten and brighten your grout.
Something I want to point out about grout as well is the reason it gets so dirty is because grout is a lot like the pores on our skin. It absorbs everything. Now unlike our skin you can seal grout by just picking up a grout sealant at the home store. What you have to do is clean the grout very well first and then apply the sealant. The reason grout gets dirty is because either it was never sealed properly in the first place or the sealant has come off.
Now when we mop the floor and use dirty water you’re actually making the situation worse. You’re pushing that dirt from the dirty mop water into the grout, and that is not good. And when you’re in the bathroom and you’re showering whatever comes off your body is slowly being absorbed into the grout as well. So growth is really a tough thing to deal. But tile floors are great to have so it’s inhibit it.
What we need to get the job done? The first thing that we’ll use is a cotton cloth. The next thing you’ll need is some water in a spray bottle. Next thing you’ll need is a cleaning toothbrush. And finally some baking soda.
The technique that we’re going to use is very simple. The first thing I’ll do is spray the grout line with water.
The second thing that I’ll do is apply baking soda to that grout. And this will form a paste and that paste is what it’s going to solve your problem. Now good things come to those who wait right. Okay this is going to take us about 15 minutes.
So as you can see the grout became perfectly clean after just leaving baking soda on grout for about 15 minutes and scrubbing it off with my awesome cleaning toothbrush.
After that, you could wet down the grout after came back from 15 minute break, reason is when we remosturize it’s a lot easier to clean. Then we could wipe off the excess on the grout and dry off the tile.
If your grout is really bad we may want to try wetting the grout down with the lemon which is a natural brightener as opposed to spraying it with water and then making a paste. That would help as well however my grout was in such bad shape.
