To go along with my early spring cleaning/organizing I wanted to tackle my grout! We have quite a bit of tile in our home. The bathrooms, the kitchen, and the laundry room. The house is 8 years old and I’m not sure if the tile was just never sealed or if it’s just dirty after all these years. Either way, I was going to rid it of the yuckiness!
I came across a Pin that did not link but had a grout cleaner recipe pasted with the picture. I decided to give it a try. I figured if it didn’t work I would just go to Lowe’s and buy a real grout cleaner.
I am so happy that I gave it a try! It actually worked!! And all of the chemicals I used were kid friendly so my kiddos got to help too…which they thought was so much fun!
We started in the kitchen
…and then tackled the master bathroom floor
Can you see the difference?!?! The grout looks as good as new!! I seriously was amazed!
I’m going over the grout with this grout sealer that we had left over from laying travertine in our Georgia house. This was bought at Home Depot. Here is a link to what they currently have now: Grout & Tile Sealer.
- 7 cups water
- ½ cup baking soda
- ⅓ cup lemon juice (or ammonia – I am not a fan of this so I stuck with the lemon juice)
- ¼ cup vinegar
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or bucket
- Use a toothbrush to apply to grout and scrub clean
- Use a dry washcloth to wipe up excess
I’d love it if you would Pin this post if you found it helpful! May everyone who has tile have clean grout!!
