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 essential for flooring, walls, and counters that look clean. While vinyl is resistant to stains and dirt, the grout lines 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 already have available. It is going to keep it looking its best, although learning will not just prolong the life of your tile. 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 grout, in addition to tile finishes. You might be amazed how clean you can get your grout with just 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 grout 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 two parts baking soda. If you’re working in a place where grout is subjected to grease (such as in the kitchen), add in a couple of drops of dish soap.

3. The solution: Spoon the homemade grout cleaner on the grout lines and allow it to sit for about 10 to 15 minutes. Giving the cleaner time to work into the pores will lead to brighter-looking grout and cleaner.

4. Start scrubbing: Using 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 your hard work is by applying a grout sealer. Sealers fill the pores of the grout, 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 how much traffic the area gets and you choose.
