During home improvement projects, your tile floors can take a bit of a beating. This is especially true when you're working with grout. Grout dust can build up on your floor tiles and be hard to remove. Some of it can likely be swept away, but if it has dried on your tile, it will be more difficult to remove.
Things You'll Need
- Soft-bristle brush
- Dust pan
- Wooden scraper
- Nylon scouring pad
Sweep up any loose grout dust with a soft-bristle brush and a dust pan.
Dampen a cloth with water and wipe over the grout dust to pick up any loose pieces the brush left behind.
Chip away larger pieces of grout that are stuck to your floor tiles using a rounded piece of hardwood. Metal scraping tools might remove the grout, but they'll also damage your tile.
Add come water to any grout dust that is stuck to your floor tiles. Scrub the tiles with a nylon scouring pad.
Continue to add water and scrub the grout dust off your tiles. Rinse and dry periodically to see if you have removed all of the grout dust.
