How to clean the grout between tiles

After the renovation, the tile grout looks perfect - gleaming with whiteness and cleanliness. However, over time, the walls become dirty, and the spaces between the tiles become an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria and pathogenic fungi.

Experts have provided information about an effective tool that can quickly clean the grout. The details were provided by Express.

Why should you clean the tile grout

First, discolored lines can spoil even the coziest bathroom interior. Second, without timely disinfection, pathogenic microorganisms multiply actively. This significantly increases the risk of various diseases, including:

  • Dermatitis
  • Mycosis
  • Asthma
  • Allergic reactions
  • Respiratory tract diseases
  • Musculoskeletal system pathologies, and more.

How to clean the grout

Cleaning and disinfecting the spaces between tiles should be done at least once every few months. It is essential to prevent the growth of mold and mildew and to regularly remove excess moisture.

An interesting life hack is gaining popularity online. Jamie Guterson asked on the Mrs. Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page how to clean grout without using aggressive bleaches and chlorine. Users advised trying a rather unusual tool - shaving foam. It acts instantly on dirt and cleans surfaces effectively.

Apply an even layer of foam to the soiled area and leave it on for a few minutes. Then, use an old toothbrush to scrub away the dirt and wipe the grout with a microfiber cloth. Shaving foam is entirely safe for children and pets.

For tough stains, baking soda and vinegar can be effective. Mix them in equal proportions, add a little hot water, and use the solution to clean the grout. It's best to apply the mixture to the grout lines with an old toothbrush. You can leave it for a few minutes to let the acid work.

Citric acid can also be effective against mold. Mix the juice of one lemon and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. As in the previous case, apply the paste-like mixture with a brush and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to wipe the grout lines with a clean cloth.
