Grout Cleaning

Grout is the one thing standing between dingy-looking tile and tile that pops. Knowing how to clean grout is vital for floors, walls, and counters that appear clean.

While tile is resistant to stains and dirt, the lines in between the tiles are porous, meaning they’ll absorb any grease, grime, or clogs they come into contact with. To buff away the stains, without harming delicate tiles and finishes, try this at-home grout cleaner made from supplies you likely already have on hand. It is going to keep it looking its best, although learning how to clean grout will not extend the life of your tile. Here’s how to clean grout in any spot in your home.

Before You Start:

As with any cleaning job, it’s always a good idea to start with the mildest cleaning solution. Highly caustic or acidic cleaners, like bleach or vinegar, will corrode and slowly destroy tile finishes, in addition to grout. You might be amazed you can get your grout with a brush and just some water. With that said, if grout is stained, there are other grout cleaners that you’re likely to have on hand.

What You’ll Need:

Follow These Steps:

1. Prep the area: Begin by spraying the grout with hot water and scrubbing with a stiff bristle brush (an old toothbrush is perfect for this) to remove any dirt or grime on the surface. Follow the grout line as you spray and scrub in a circular movement. You can use, if you have one on hand.

2. Mix the cleansing solution: Make a grout cleaner glue of two parts baking soda to one part hydrogen peroxide. If you’re working in a place where grout is subjected to grease (like in the kitchen), add in a few drops of dish soap.

3. Apply the solution: Spoon the homemade grout cleaner onto the grout lines and allow it to sit for around 10 to 15 minutes. Giving the time to work into the pores will result in cleaner and grout.

4. Start scrubbing: Using a brush, scrub the grout lines to lift up any dirt trapped in the pores.

5. Rinse the tileAfter scrubbing, mix a few drops of dish detergent in with some hot water and use a sponge or cloth to rinse the tile and then wipe up the remaining grout cleaner.

Keep it clean: 

The perfect way to preserve all your hard work is by applying a grout sealer. Sealers fill the grout’s pores, keeping out grime and dirt. Before applying the sealer, wait at least 24 hours to be sure that the grout is totally dry. Often your grout needs to be resealed both will depend upon the sealer you select and how much traffic the area gets.

Hint: Running a squeegee over the tile after every shower can help prevent mold and soap scum buildup, making shower tile look fresh and clean.
