If you have a tile floor or backsplash, you know how hard it is to keep grout clean. Grout absorbs all the little dirt and dust it encounters, which can quickly make it look dirty. Fortunately, cleaning grout doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore. By following this simple method, you can get your grout looking bright and clean again.
Baking soda is your secret weapon when it comes to cleaning joints. All you have to do is make a paste using baking soda and water. Then apply the paste to the entire grout. The easiest way to do this is to apply the paste to the grout using an old toothbrush. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, then start scrubbing with a stiff bristle brush or the toothbrush. When you’re done scrubbing, rinse with water or use a damp cloth to remove any residue.
If your grout is extremely stained and dirty, many people swear by using baking soda and vinegar to clean the grout. However, some warn that repeated use of this method can cause the grout to deteriorate due to the acidity of the vinegar. Ultimately, use your best judgment. We hope this simple method helps you restore your home’s grout to its former glory!
