How to give grout a powerful deep cleaning?


I’m willing to bet that everyone has some form of tile in their home. Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or anywhere else, tile is a popular flooring choice because of its durability and aesthetic appeal. However, as we all know, the worst part of tile is the grout that comes with it.

Grout is the cement-like material found between tiles to space and seal them. And while grout is quite necessary, it gets dirty extremely fast. One minute your grout is bright white, and the next it’s covered in grime, mold and dirt.

So what to do about dirty, unsightly grout? Facebook user Paula May Calder has a great solution. Paula explains that she mixed 7 cups of water, 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/3 cup of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of vinegar. She then sprayed the solution directly onto the grout in her kitchen.

She let the solution sit for a few minutes before using a grout cleaning brush to work the solution in (a small scrubbing brush or old toothbrush would work too). Finally, she rinsed the solution off with water and voila! Her grout is now clean, fresh and shiny. So, if your grout needs a little love, this easy, all-natural method sounds like your best bet!
