It can be pretty difficult to keep your bathroom tiles and the grout in between clean. Tiles are hard and smooth and made to withstand grease and dirt. Grout is the exact opposite: the material is porous and absorbs moisture, grease and dirt. If the grout between your tiles is looking black, yellow or simply dirty, it doesn’t look very neat. Do you want to know how to properly clean this and have you already tried everything you could think of? We’re here to help you out!
Keeping your tiles clean is very important because it’ll extend the life of the tile and keep it looking its best!
Start at the beginning
This tip holds true for every cleaning project in your home: start with the least aggressive method. Always try mild, natural products first before using bleach, chlorine and other aggressive products. Even vinegar, which is very acidic, can damage grout and remove the protective layer from your tiles. Often, you can do a lot with just some hot water and a brush. If that doesn’t work, you can try the following method.
What you’ll need
- A brush with tough hairs, like an old toothbrush
- Baking soda
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Dish soap
