Hi, I’m Reena from Reena.ca, and this is how to clean grout. The most important key in cleaning grout is to seal it. This prevents stains from food, and all kinds of different things from penetrating through the porous system of grout. If you seal your grout, you’ll have a lot less problems in the future with stains. But, for regular cleaning and for stains, there’s a few household products that you can use to make life really easy, and the first trick I like to use is plain old toothpaste. Put it onto an old toothbrush, and then brush it along the grout back and forth. You’ll really notice this works well, and everyone has toothpaste on hand. Another tip that you can use is good old fashioned three percent hydrogen peroxide. You can find this wherever Band-Aids are sold in pharmacies, grocery stores, and department stores. Pour some hydrogen peroxide onto the area and sprinkle with a little bit of baking soda to give it some abrasion. Again, using a toothbrush, scrub the area back and forth. Hydrogen peroxide has just enough bleaching agent to clean the floor without damaging it. For really tough stains, you may want to revert to straight dish soap. Put that onto the grout, and then use a pumice stone to scrub the area. Pumice stones are available at beauty stores. Don’t rub too hard, because you don’t want to damage the grout. This is really effective at getting rid of old stains. And, some people recommend using good old fashioned vinegar, and although I love vinegar, this is not one use that I would find for vinegar. It seems to cause etching in grout if used over a long amount of time. But, these are all products that you can use from your house. Very easy to do. This is Reena from Reena.ca.
