Nothing like the in-laws coming to town to motivate me to get my house squeaky clean. I noticed a few weeks ago that the 50 year old white grout in my bathroom was looking pretty dingy. I knew it was the perfect time to test a PIN I had seen a while back. The photo was pretty impressive, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Homemade Grout Cleaner
7 cups water
1/2 cup baking soda
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vinegar
Mix all ingredients together in a spray bottle (watch out---it foams!). Spray on the stained grout. Let it sit for an hour or two. Use a scrub brush to wipe away the dirt.
How did it work? Great! Here's what my floor looked like:
I loved this cleaner. I hardly had to scrub at a ll. There was little-to-no smell. It was a non-toxic, kid-friendly cleaner. I got it on my hands and didn't have to worry about chemical burns. The ingredients are all inexpensive and I had them all on hand already. And most importantly, my grout is white again! Yippee!
