Clean Your Tile Grout With This Simple Homemade Grout Cleaner

Decor Ideas 02.11.15
The grout in our bathroom wasn’t exceptionally clean when we moved in to our current apartment, and it hasn’t learned to magically clean itself over the past year either...So I did something about it! This simple grout cleaning recipe is extremely powerful, and it only requires two ingredients, both of which you probably already have at home! #CleaningTricks #CleanIt

    can u use this if u have colored tiles?
    • Jessi @ Practically Functional
      Michele Bauer Yep! It won't hurt the tiles at all! But if you have colored grout you may want to test it on a small area first. The bleach could possibly bleach the colored grout, so just double check before you start.

      Michele Bauer how much oxiclean do you put on the toilet tank? that sounds like a good idea.

    Great advice. Vinegar and baking soda never fails to work for me in removing grout.

    Maybe vinegar and lemon is less harmful, don't really like the smell of bleach.

    Great idea! My bathroom walls are tiled half way up. Will have to do this! I have a battery operated tool to scrub with.

    My tile guy said just plain white vinegar sprayed on will do it. I haven't tried it as yet.
