Tiles make our kitchens and bathrooms stunning. We may wipe it and get it germ-free but when we think of grout, it is the home of molds and dirt and makes the cleaning require more time and extra care. And because of that, we have listed cleaning secrets that can help you make your grout cleaning journey easier and faster.
Cleaning Secret #1
Mix together baking soda and water to make a paste, then rub on to dirty grout using an old toothbrush. An electric toothbrush with an old head will also work wonders and save your elbows! Work it well into the grout says Joanne Finney.
Cleaning Secret #2
To clean your grout with good old chlorine bleach, the ACI recommends that you dilute ¾ cup of the stuff with 1 gallon of water. Spray the cleaning solution on the grout and let it sit for a few minutes.
Next, grab a stiff-bristled brush and start scrubbing until the grout starts sparkling—just be sure to rinse the area well when you’re done.
Cleaning Secret #3
Fill a bucket with 7 cups warm water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup ammonia, and 1/4 cup vinegar. Stir to combine.
Dip a sponge into the mixture or pour some into a spray bottle. Apply a liberal amount of cleaner to the grout and allow it to sit for several minutes.
Scrub the grout with a small brush or old toothbrush. If the grout doesn’t come clean easily, apply more of your homemade mixture and allow it to sit for up to an hour.

Cleaning Secret #5
In case you missed it, the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is a miracle product that can be used to clean just about anything (well, almost), and it can restore your grout to its former glory, too. The process here is straightforward: Dampen the magic eraser with water and start scrubbing the grout. That’s right, no cleaning solution of any kind is needed for this method—you may, however, need more than one magic eraser to get the job done, since they tend to deteriorate after heavy use, and you’ll want to avoid adding too much water as this will hasten the eraser’s decline. Once the scrubbing is done, mop up the gray water and grime (gross, but satisfying) with a clean sponge and call it a day. Bottom line: If you’re looking for a grout-cleaning solution that doesn’t involve a lot of harsh chemicals, this foolproof method is a winner. Source: Emma Singer
