Grout can get yucky quickly so it’s best to clean it regularly to maintain a white, beautiful line. But if you’re one of the many who can’t seem to squeeze “GROUT CLEANING” into their regular routine (there are many of us out there…) then we’ve got an easy solution for your yearly grout scrubbing spree.
It’s likely you’ll have all the required materials at home so start by gathering them up. You’ll need:
1. Clean tiled surface.
2. Make a paste with baking powder and water. The consistency should be similar to pancake batter.
3. Apply a thick layer of paste (⅛ inch) to the grout. Let the paste sit for 5 minutes. Spray all grout covered in baking soda paste with white vinegar using your spray bottle. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes again.
4. Scrub every inch of grout with your toothbrush. Some might recommend a wire brush, sandpaper, or more abrasive scrubbing tools. These might be useful if you have very stained grout but be careful to watch for any damaged or weak grout that may come loose from too much scrubbing.
5. Clean baking soda mixture off of tiled surface. Repeat these cleaning steps on any sections of grout that need extra attention.
