5 Easy Ways to Clean Grout in Your Tiles Like a Pro at Home

Are you tired of staring at grimy grout lines in your beautiful tiles? Cleaning grout can be a daunting task, but fear not! With a few simple techniques and household items, you can make your grout sparkle like new again. Here are five easy ways to clean grout in your tiles at home:

  1. Baking Soda and Vinegar Combo:

  • Mix equal parts baking soda and white vinegar to form a paste.

  • Apply the paste onto the grout lines using an old toothbrush or a grout brush.

  • Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to allow the fizzing action to loosen dirt and grime.

  • Scrub the grout lines vigorously, focusing on tough stains.

  • Rinse the area with water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.

  1. Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda Paste:

  • Create a paste by mixing hydrogen peroxide with baking soda until it forms a thick consistency.

  • Apply the paste onto the grout lines and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.

  • Scrub the grout with a brush to lift stains and dirt.

  • Rinse the area with water and dry with a towel.

  1. Steam Cleaning:

  • If you have a steam cleaner at home, it can be a game-changer for cleaning grout.

  • Fill the steam cleaner with water according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • Direct the steam nozzle onto the grout lines and move it back and forth.

  • The steam will penetrate the grout, loosening dirt and killing bacteria.

  • Wipe away the loosened dirt with a cloth.

  1. Lemon Juice and Baking Soda Scrub:

  • Make a paste using lemon juice and baking soda.

  • Apply the paste onto the grout lines and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

  • Scrub the grout with a brush or an old toothbrush.

  • Lemon juice acts as a natural bleaching agent, brightening the grout.

  • Rinse the area thoroughly with water and dry it off.

  1. Commercial Grout Cleaners:

  • There are numerous commercial grout cleaners available in the market.

  • Follow the instructions on the cleaner's packaging for best results.

  • Typically, you'll need to apply the cleaner onto the grout, let it sit for a specified time, and then scrub or rinse it off.

  • Be sure to wear gloves and work in a well-ventilated area when using commercial cleaners.

Remember, consistency is key when it comes to maintaining clean grout. Regular cleaning prevents dirt and grime from building up and makes future cleaning easier.
