DIY Tile Grout Cleaner

140K Views
I thought my house was kept up pretty well until one day my world came crashing down on me. I had house guests coming to stay with us, so I went into the guest bathroom to make sure the bathroom was stocked with all necessary toiletries. I hardly ever go into this bathroom and when I walked in this time, it hit me. I saw how clean the grout in the tiles looked compared to the rest of the house. My entire downstairs floor and the upstairs bathrooms have tiles, but they all looked filthy compared to this barely used bathroom. I needed to do something fast, but I didn’t want to spend too much money to get the job done.

Using the brush, gently scrub the grout. I was shocked at how much dirt and grime came up. I also noticed that some of my tiles need to be re-grouted.

You can see the difference already. When all of the grout is scrubbed, use a mop to get up the remaining liquid.

    Using a magic eraser in some cases is a no no for me because the eraser breaks down and small pieces do fall off can clog sinks and drains.

      Great idea! I'm going to save the brush heads from now on & try it.

    I use a concentrated cleaner that was first sold door-to-door in our neighborhood: Quick Job. Save up the toothbrushes. Spray the grout and wait a minute or two (let it do its job). Take the toothbrush to the grout line then wipe quickly. I like the
