Looking for a way to get grout clean? My method may be your solution.
We moved into our house back in October, and one of the challenges I have faced is keeping the almost white surfaces, almost white. Off white tile, grout, and white Berber carpets would not have been my first choice of colors with the traffic we produce, but the house had so many other great features I was willing to deal with it.
Well, it is almost a year later and needless to say with 2 dogs, a cat, 2 mobile kids and 2 adults, the grout is not as pretty anymore and I definitely need to streamline my housekeeping and cleaning efforts. Since I really don’t want to pay a professional to come in and clean the grout unless absolutely necessary, I figured I would give it a try myself.
Not to long ago, I had tried using Bar Keepers Friend on my Smooth Top Range, and it did wonders, so I figured I would try it out on the grout.
So first off, I tested a small area with the Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish, to verify that I would not ruin it, but it worked fine. I also checked their site to see if they recommended it for this surface, barkeepersfriend.com/tile-and-grout, and they did.
Here are the tools that I needed to complete the task; A thin scrubbing brush, a cup with water, Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish, and paper towels.
How I did it:
I poured a little bit of the Bar Keepers Friend on the grout, wet the brush, scrubbed until clean, and then used a damp paper towel to clean off the dirt and the left over cleaner.
It did an awesome job and Hubby even mentioned how nice it looked. I am really excited about this outcome! Now, keep in mind this may not work for everyone’s surface so I definitely recommend testing a small area first.
Do you have any tips as well for cleaning a Grout? I would love for you to comment below, so it can be shared with others.
