Because sometimes it's OK to take the easy way out!
Things You'll Need
- Spray Bottles
- Liquid Bleach
- Rubber Gloves
Put on old clothes and shoes.
Fill a spray bottle with a solution of half liquid household bleach and half warm water.
Turn the bottle nozzle to get a stream instead of a mist.
Spray the grout, saturating it with long, sweeping strokes.
Allow saturated grout to sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Repeat if needed.
Tips & Warnings
- This solution will bleach most stains, including mildew, but it won't remove crud - for that you've got to scrub.
- Household bleach is caustic at this concentration; you may want to wear gloves. A shower cap won't hurt either.
- Don't use this on cement grout, which is porous and can be broken down by repeated contact with bleach.
