Comments - How to Clean Tile Grout

Pat on Aug 08, 2019:

I love oxiclean for many things, I will try on my grout next time I clean it. This time I made a paste of baking soda and water then scrubbed it into my grout lines with a nail brush (toothbrush will work if bristles are stiff enough). Let sit for minimum 5 minutes then using a squirt bottle spray with white vinegar. It will fizz up then wipe with a clean wet rag. when finished you may have to rinse again to get the white film from the baking soda off. What a difference in my floor. Best method I have found yet.

Amazing! We just rent what was supposed to be a "Luxury apartment". I was shocked when I saw all the tiles had grout so dirty that I was at a loss as to what to do. Your experiment showed me and now my tiles and grout look astonishing. Thanks for the head's up on this one!

Thanks for the info. I just bought a house that has the dirtiest kitchen floor I have ever seen. I was going to replace it but have decided to try to save it and just clean, clean,clean! I'd rather spend the money on quartz counters..lol. Your post has encouraged me to use the Oxiclean method and save my tile from the dump.

I agree with Ray: after using a cleaner--even a vinegar spitz--it would be best to re-apply sealer.
