How to Clean Tile Grout Efficiently and Without Inhaling Dangerous Chemicals

The grout between tiles gets dirty very easily and it’s not quite easy to make white again. Cleaning firms have some powerful stem equipment to that effect, but if you can’t afford their services, there are some cheap solutions around your own home. This is how to clean tile grout efficiently, without using powerful products and inhaling dangerous chemicals. 

Hydrogen peroxide

You’ll find it in your medicine cabinet and, for a really low price, in drug stores. Just spray it on the grout, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then scrub with a toothbrush. This substance dissolves dirt, which should come off easily. Then wash your tiles with your regular cleaning solution.

These two are powerful allies fighting difficult to remove dirt. Here’s how to use them.

Damp the grout with some water, then add baking soda on a toothbrush and scrub. Or you can make a paste out of baking soda and hot water and apply that directly on the grout scrubbing away with the toothbrush.

Then spray vinegar on the joints and you will see it interact with the baking soda, forming foam that cleans the grout in depth. Leave this mixture act for 10 – 15 minutes, then wipe it out with a damp cloth.

Lemon juice

You can mix it with some rock salt, until you have a paste. Use it to scrub the joints with a cloth or toothbrush, leave it for 10 more minutes when you’re done scrubbing and then rinse. This mixture also works on rust.

Another method is to spray it on the joints, but also on the tiles, because it will clean those well too. After 10 minutes, you can wipe away with a damp cloth.
