I’m always on the lookout for cheap green cleaning ideas and store bought grout cleaner is super toxic. As you can imagine, I was ecstatic to find this green recipe! Not only did I already have all the ingredients at home, but it actually did an amazing job at putting the shine back in the tile and grout all around my home.

Step 1: Collect your supplies

I used baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and generic dish soap.

Step 2: Add baking soda to a jar

I first poured ½ cup of baking soda or as our British cousins call it soda bi-carb into a glass jar.

Step 3: Add hydrogen peroxide

Then, I poured in ¼ cup of H2O2.

Step 4: Add dish soap

I added 1 teaspoon of dish soap. You can use an eco brand if you want, but any brand works fine.

Step 5: Mix it up

I mixed my concoction with a spoon, but I probably could also have shaken the jar. Now, here's my grimy grout and tile corner!

Magic, right? And it stores really well, too. Major plus!

    Doesn't the Hydrogen Peroxide cause it to turn some of the tile white, since HP does this on clothing, etc

      Tile is fired and glazed. Nothing can get to tile surface to change its color
