Tile grout cleaning should be included in our daily household cleaning routine to keep our home spotless. Dirt can accumulate between the grooves in each tile and after sometime, this can be hard to remove. There are many chemicals you can buy to clean grout but the best approach is with the use of natural products.
With the use of proper ingredients cleaning grout can be an easy task. Choose components that would easily break deposits that have collected in the grouted surface without damaging the tile and the surrounding area.
Baking soda with its abrasive property penetrates grooves and removes heavy build-up of dirt. It is also used to remove stains and draw out liquid spills. To create a thick baking soda paste, combine ¾ cup of baking soda with ¼ cup of warm water.
With the use of a toothbrush or a nylon brush, apply the solution on the grout and slowly scrub the surface until the lodged particles are removed. For best result leave the paste for 15-20 minutes before rinsing.
For thick spills and stubborn stains, pour a thick covering of baking soda on tile grout and leave it for 20 minutes. Sprinkle a handful of baking soda before scrubbing it with a wet brush. Wipe with damp cloth after.
White Vinegar or Distilled Vinegar
The acetic acid in vinegar has anti-fungal property and its acidity kills germs. This makes it an effective disinfectant. The acetic acid also dissolves mineral deposits.
Spray the vinegar on tile surfaces and let it sit for 15 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.
Don’t use vinegar on grout that surrounds natural stones because it can react and damage it.
Vinegar and Baking Soda
For tougher dirt that can’t be removed by baking soda or vinegar alone, combine these two ingredients. Add 1-2 tbsp. baking soda to your vinegar and water solution. You’ll notice bubbling of the product when applied on the surfaces.
Another component you can add to the vinegar solution other than the baking soda is hydrogen peroxide. Mix a tsp. of this into the vinegar solution and you will get a cleaning and disinfecting solution as well.
