Grout can be tricky to keep clean because it is porous. On tile floors, even sweeping won’t get rid of all the dirt, crumbs, or anything else that might have accumulated. While it can be tricky to keep clean, there are some tricks to cleaning even the dirtiest and trickiest of grout that you might come across when cleaning a home. Let’s take a look at some tricks to cleaning grout using the best household cleaning supplies.
Lightly Stained Grout
To clean stained grout, use a strong bleach solution and scrub with a small brush or toothbrush. Don’t scrub too hard, though or you might damage the grout. Wear safety goggles to prevent the bleach from splattering in your eyes, and keep the work area ventilated. Foam grout cleaner might also work well in this situation.
Deeply Stained Grout
If the grout is deeply stained it will need to be removed and replaced. Clean the space between the tiles with a strong bleach solution, then apply new grout and seal it. Be careful when doing this not stain or damage the tile with any of the materials.
New Tile and Grout
The best way to clean your grout is to do your best to prevent any staining in the first place when installing. Using a grout sealer 10–14 days after the grout cures is the best way to do that.
