How to Clean Grout the Easy Way

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 actually pops. Understanding how to clean grout is vital for floors, walls, and counters that look sparkly clean. While vinyl is resistant to stains and dirt, the lines in between the tiles are porous, meaning they will absorb any dirt, spills they come into contact with, or grime. To buff the stains away, without damaging delicate tiles and finishes, try this grout cleaner made from supplies you likely have available. Learning how to clean grout will not prolong the life of your tile, but it will keep it looking its best. Here’s how to clean grout.

How to Clean Grout the Easy Way

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 bleach or bleach, will corrode and slowly destroy tile finishes, in addition to grout. You might be amazed how clean you can get your grout with a brush and only some water. If grout is stained, there are other powerful grout cleaners that you’re likely to already have on hand with that said.

What You’ll 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 movement. If you have one you may also use a steam cleaner, which is quite efficient at cleaning grout.

2. Mix the cleaning solution: Create a grout cleaner paste of 2 parts baking soda to one part hydrogen peroxide. 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. Apply 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 water and use a sponge or cloth wipe up the grout cleaner and to wash the tile.

Keep it clean

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 that 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.

Tip: 

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