How to clean grout without chemicals! Are you on the edge of your seat yet? 😉
Ever have one of those projects you never tackle? Yeah, I have a lot of those around my house. More than I care to admit.
One weekend my husband was gone, the baby was napping, and I felt that I should tackle one of those jobs. So I put my daughter in front of the TV with some Little Bear on and headed to the bathroom to try a grout cleaning method I read on Tammy’s Recipes.
How to Clean Grout
We’ve lived in our house for 3 1/2 years. Not once have I scrubbed the grout on our bathroom floor. An older gentleman owned the house before us and, judging from how the house looked when we moved in, I doubt he did either. The floor was looking just slightly grody. (Yes, I might be under exaggerating a little.)
Step 1: Sprinkle baking soda in the grout on a section of floor.
Step 2: Pour hydrogen peroxide over it.
Step 3: While you let the peroxide and baking soda soak repeat steps 1 and 2 on the next section of tile.
Step 4: The hard part. Scrub the first section with the toothbrush like crazy. Use the rag and hot water to scrub and rinse some more. (You’ll have to rinse well to be sure you get all the baking soda off.)
Step 5: Repeat until the floor is finished.
Warning: Your legs and clothes will turn white from the baking soda.
It was a couple of hours of hard work but my goodness what an improvement. I probably should do it a little more often then every three plus years.
