Give new life to gross tile with this easy grout cleaner
Dirty grout is often the one thing standing between dingy-looking tile and tile that really pops. Understanding how to clean grout is essential for floors, walls, and counters that look sparkly clean. While vinyl is resistant to dirt and stains, the lines between the tiles are porous, meaning they will absorb any dirt. To buff the stains away, without damaging delicate tiles and finishes, try this grout cleaner made from supplies you already have available. Learning how to clean grout will not prolong the life of your tile, but it is going to keep it looking its best. Here’s how to clean grout.
Before You Start:
As with any cleaning project, it’s always a good idea to begin with the mildest cleaning solution. Highly caustic or acidic cleaners, such as vinegar or bleach, will corrode and gradually destroy tile finishes, in addition to grout. You might be amazed how clean you can get your grout with only some hot water and a brush. If grout is stained, there are powerful grout cleaners that you’re likely to have on hand, with that said.
What You Will Need:
- Stiff bristle brush
- Baking soda
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Dish soap
Follow These Steps:
1. Prep the area: Begin by spraying on 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 line as you spray and scrub in a circular motion. If you have one available, you may also use a steam cleaner, which is quite effective at cleaning grout.
2. Mix the cleaning solution: Create a grout cleaner glue of 2 parts baking soda. If you’re working in a place where grout is subjected to grease (such as in the kitchen), add in a few drops of dish soap.
3. The solution: Spoon the homemade allow it to sit for about 10 to 15 minutes and grout cleaner on the lines. Giving the cleaner time to work into the pores will lead to brighter-looking grout and cleaner.
4. Start scrubbing: With a brush, scrub the grout lines to lift up any dirt.
5. After scrubbing rinse the tile, mix a few drops of dish soap in with some hot water and use a sponge or cloth wipe up the grout cleaner and to wash the tile.

Keep it clean:
The best way to preserve all of your hard work is by applying a grout sealer. Sealers fill the grout’s pores, keeping out dirt and grime. Wait at least 24 hours to make sure the grout is dry before applying the sealer. How often your grout has to be resealed both depends upon the sealer you select and how much traffic the area gets.
