Keeping Inevitable Stains Out Of Grout


Grout CleaningWhile it may seem esthetically appealing, grout within your home – whether it be in the kitchen, bathroom, or on the walls – it’s a hassle to keep clean, especially if it isn’t sealed. If you’re familiar with battling grout, you understand how it’s a little coarse to touch, which means it hasn’t been sealed. A majority of homes that have tile will also have unsealed grout, making it the ideal place for dirt, grime, food, and beverages to stain.

If you have never cleaned the grout within your home, hiring professionals may be your best bet, because the scrubbing and solutions we’re about to discuss won’t get out the extreme stains that have been sitting for too long, but rather the lighter and newer stains.

Cleaning The Grout

If you’ve successfully cleaned the grout in your home before, but feel like it puts too much strain on your back from having to scrub, we have better solutions that won’t leave you in pain from trying to keep your home clean.

What You’ll Need To Grab

  • Oxygenated bleach
  • Old toothbrush
  • Lemon
  • Warm Water

Follow These Helpful Steps!

1.) Make sure you clean the area removing any excess debris or residue that would otherwise mark the grout as you scrub it – then, completely dry it with a towel.

2.) Take two cups of your oxygenated bleach (such as OxiClean) and dissolve it into two cups of warm water – this will make the bleach less potent.

3.) Use your corrosive brush and dip it in the mixture before applying it to the grout. Once you notice the grout is saturated, begin to scrub in a circular motion – this will help break up the stains.

4.) If the stains are deep and have been sitting for longer than you would have liked, use the lemon and squeeze it along the grout, but use it sparingly – lemon juice can destroy the tile finishing.

5.) After you finish scrubbing the grout, spray it down with a household cleaner and wipe it dry.
