There’s nothing that ages your home quite as much as dark, dirty grout. Whether it is between the tiles in your kitchen, bathroom or floor — it’s unsightly. Not only does it look bad, it’s not very hygienic, either.
Your grout is a great place for mold to grow and dirt to get trapped. And chances are you touch this grout a lot, meaning you’re carrying that dirt and mold to other spots in your home.
While it seems like tedious work, you can actually scrub your grout nice and clean really easily if you choose the right products. Going for harsh chemicals might seem like the way to go, but you really need to make sure you have proper ventilation when you’re tackling a project this big.
For that reason, all natural grout cleaners are a great option. They’re simply and we guarantee you have 95 percent of these ingredients in your home already. So, what are you waiting for? Check out the list and get started cleaning up your grimy grout:
1. Baking soda
Good old baking soda will do the trick on that stubborn grout. Using a sponge, water and 1/2 a cup of baking soda you can wipe down your grout (or give it a little scrub) to reveal good-as-new grout.
For really dark and dirty grout, Wellness Mama says reach for the vinegar. Using a damp sponge, dip it into some full strength white vinegar and wipe your grout up. Then, get in there with baking soda and a toothbrush and start scrubbing. It might be all natural, but this powerful combination will have real results.
3. Fight mold with hydrogen peroxide
If you have a mold problem in your grout, say in the bathroom, this is the solution you’re looking for. Wellness Mama says you should take 1 part Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) and 1 part water and combine it in a spray bottle. Spray over the grout and let it sit for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that rinse it and reveal clean grout.
