The Thrifty Apartment
Cleaning grout isn’t always a walk in the park, especially when it comes to the grout between floor tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. With kids and pets around, these areas see a lot of action and traffic which can make it even harder to keep clean.
While there are plenty of store-bought options, you can actually create a natural and non-toxic grout cleaner at home. The best part? You probably have all the ingredients you need right in your kitchen or bathroom.
What You'll Need – Hydrogen Peroxide – Baking Soda – Dawn Dish Soap – Toothbrush or Grout Brush – Glass Bowl or Cup
Step 1 Combine equal amounts of cup baking soda and hydrogen peroxide – 1/2 cup each and add three tablespoons of dish soap into a bowl. Stir the ingredients to make your homemade cleaning solution.
Step 2 Apply the mixture liberally onto the grout lines. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Step 3 Use a grout brush or toothbrush and scrub the grout. This should help to clean the grout.
Step 4 Rinse the area with warm water and that should do it.
