Tips for DIY Grout Cleaning
Dirty grout lines can overshadow the beauty of backsplash, floor, and wall tiles. Tiles can’t be installed without grout, so the best option for homeowners is to learn grout cleaning. Homeowners can get professionals to clean grout for them, but a DIY approach is better since it’s easy and can be done with materials available in their homes.
How can homeowners clean dirty grout lines on their tiles using home materials?
According to the narrator, a brush isn’t enough to clean dirty grout lines. Instead, a mix of pantry materials, including dish soap, white vinegar, and baking soda, should be used.
The first step is to pour white vinegar on the grout lines to soak them. Next, the homeowners should mix the dish soap, baking soda, and white vinegar in a plastic cup and stir for about a minute until mixed.
Then the homeowner should pour the mixture on top of the grout soaked with white vinegar and use a stiff brush to scrub the grout lines. Finally, the dirt in the grout lines should start to come out, and the homeowner should finish by wiping the excess liquid with a cloth or sponge.
