Did you know that you can make your own homemade grout cleaner with products you probably already have on hand? This easy to make all natural cleaner will leave you with that bright white grout you desire. So, what are you waiting for? Break out your supplies today!
Supplies to make your homemade grout cleaner:
- Baking soda
- Hydrogen peroxide
Add some baking soda to a bowl. Pour as much in as you think you will need to clean your grout. The amount will depend on how big the area is to be cleaned. Remember, however, that you can always whip up more.
Then add hydrogen peroxide slowly to the baking soda mixing well. You want to add liquid until the entire thing becomes a paste. There really are not any measurements. Just drop it in a few teaspoons at a time and mix well.
Once you have a paste, it is time to put that homemade grout cleaner to work and tackle that grout! Here is my bathroom floor where the grout has become discolored.
Spoon the paste onto your grout lines. You want to lay your homemade grout cleaner right into the grout. Then press slightly to ensure that it is really in the line and directly on your grout. Continue until all of your grout cleaner is on the floor or the entire area you want to clean is covered. Now for the hard part! You will need to let this sit 15 minutes or so. Allowing it to sit will make your job way easier.
Once the time is up, use a sponge and some warm water to remove the cleaner and reveal your nice clean grout lines. You may have to scrub a little bit but the cleaner has worked its magic! I decided to do a little experiment as well and see if this cleaner is reusable. I actually moved the cleaner that was on the grout lines to a different area before cleaning with the water. Then I allowed it to sit another 15 minutes to see if it would clean again.
It worked! You can reuse this cleaner at least once and still get the same results. It may even work a few more times as well. Give this homemade grout cleaner a try in your home and you will love the results. You can see on the image below exactly where the grout cleaner was on this floor. Now to head out and repeat this process across the entire floor. Clean grout here I come!
