How to Clean Grout Without Scrubbing
Grout scrubbing is a pain! You can simplify your cleaning routine by opting for methods that lift dirt without much effort.
1: Vinegar, lemon, and water
Homemade, natural options are available with this simple DIY method. This mixture breaks down dirt and grime with slightly acidic ingredients. Mix 3.5 cups (830mL) of hot water with lemon juice from half a lemon and 3 tablespoons (43g) of white vinegar in a spray bottle. Apply a mixture over the grout lines. Wiping it away with a damp rag for a few minutes can help.
2: The combination of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda
This paste can be used to lighten stains and cut through grease. One ratio of hydrogen peroxide to baking soda is 1:1. Make sure to use dish soap to break down fat. Tiles should be covered with the paste. You can leave the mixture on your grout for 10 minutes before wiping it with a damp cloth.
3: Toilet bowl cleaner with bleach
Try this cleaning hack for a minimal-effort cleaner. Apply a toilet bowl cleaner directly onto your grout lines. Move fast as you apply the product to keep the flow even and keep your lines straight. After 30 minutes, wipe off the cleaner with a damp rag. Rinse the grout if necessary to get rid of excess cleaner.
4: Oxygen bleach
You can use this method for adamant grout stains. Add 1.5 tablespoons (about 22 g) of powdered oxygen bleach to 1 gallon (3.8 L) of warm water. The solution should be applied over the grout to "flood" the grout lines. For about 15-20 minutes, leave the key. Once you've rinsed off the solution, you can enjoy your cleaner grout.
5: Chlorine bleach
Use this method with caution when dealing with rust and bad stains. Tiles on this method are best used in small areas rather than over the entire surface due to chlorine bleach. Apply undiluted bleach to the grout lines and let it sit for a few minutes. It is best to dry them with a clean, dry cloth.
6: Alkaline cleaning product
Wet any mould or mildew with an alkaline cleaner. Alkaline cleaners bought from the store will vary in their dilution and use instructions. Let the product sit for as long as you follow the instructions on the back. Some products work within 5-10 minutes. Remove the product from your tile at the recommended time.
7: Steam cleaner
Using the chemical-free method will result in no harm done. Hot water combined with high-pressure work to remove dirt. Using your steam cleaner, the grout should be disinfected at a temperature of 200 °F (93 °C). It is essential to hold up the steam wand to the grout lines and move it repeatedly to loosen dirt.
8: Grout sealant and colourant
Consider applying grout sealants to restore grout colour. Your grout lines are sealed to prevent moisture and bacteria from entering all of them. The grout sealant you can purchase will recolour your grout as well, effectively painting over it.
