Tutorial How To Make Tile Grout Cleaner

Follow this simple steps to make best tile and hrout cleaner for your bathroom, etc.

Step 1: Put on protective gear

It's a good idea to wear protective clothing before assembling the materials needed to clean your homemade plaster. Remember to be very careful when working with hydrogen peroxide. Put on rubber gloves before going to work. (While hydrogen peroxide is generally safe for topical use, it can burn if cut). Also, make sure your eyes are not strewn; Rinse it right away if you do.

Step 2: Make a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide

Remove the lid of the small top-opening container. (This bottle from Amazon is a good choice.) Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda into the bottle, then mix in 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Baking soda will help remove tough stains and hard water buildup, while hydrogen peroxide cleans, sparkles, and removes grout residue to remove discoloration.

Step 3: Add dish soap and shake until combined

Add 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap, put the cap back on, and shake the mixture to make sure the ingredients in your homemade grout cleaner are well combined.

Step 4: Apply grout cleaner, leave it clean

Use the squeeze cap bottle to apply the homemade grout cleaner in a thin line to any areas that need a good scrub. Leave the mixture in the plaster for five minutes until it has already soaked into the stain, then wipe the mixture with a sponge or paper towel. Rinse with water to remove any residue. If stains remain, repeat as needed until grout is clean.

As cool as it is to see the grout clean again, wouldn't it have been better if there weren't any stains to deal with in the first place? In the future, make household chores easier by regularly cleaning and maintaining the grout before it gets out of hand. Here are some simple ways to get rid of dirt and grime:

  • Prevent discoloration by sealing the plaster once a year. 

The sealant creates a barrier that protects against unsightly stains and dirt buildup, so you don't have to use a homemade grout cleaner.

  • Tile floors vacuumed regularly. 

Your machine can pick up excess dirt before you take out the mop and specialty cleaners so you don't just push it out.

  • Mop tile floors with water and foam once a week, but do not use detergents! 

Use more and the residue left behind will attract more dirt after the floor dries.
