One of the places in a house that gets dirty the fastest is the grout in your bathroom. When the bight white grout is obscured by dark mildew stains, it is both unsightly and unsanitary. However, with just a few common household ingredients, you can eliminate the grout stains and prevent them from returning.
- You can clean grout with baking soda, vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide.
- Fill your spray bottle with a 1:1 solution of vinegar and water and spray the work area generously. Let the solution sit for about five minutes, then follow up with a grout brush or a scrub brush.
- In a small bowl, make a paste with baking soda and water. Dip your toothbrush or grout brush in the paste and work it into the grout. Spray the area with your vinegar + water solution. The vinegar will cause the baking soda to bubble up and will start to work away that nasty soap scum.
“If you’ve got visible stains, mold or mildewed grout, hydrogen peroxide is a game changer. Spray it on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes then go to work on it with your scrub brush of choice.”
