Tile is an ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or any other area subject to moisture. Installed properly, it will look great for many years to come. If tile has a drawback, it’s the cleaning. The tiles themselves are usually pretty easy to clean, but the grout can be another story — especially if yours is a light color. Here’s how to make your own DIY grout cleaner that will make yours look new again in no time.
1. Gather Household Ingredients
You probably already have all the ingredients you need to make this grout cleaner in your cupboards or medicine cabinet. All you’re going to grab is 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 teaspoon of liquid dish detergent, and 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide provides whitening, and the baking soda and soap help to scrub away stains.
