If you follow me on Instagram, you got to see me clean my bathroom (lucky you!). I needed to get our bathroom ready for selling our home. I needed to clean the grout on our ceramic tile floor, but didn’t want to use bleach or other harsh cleaners. I found the best, easiest, all-natural way to clean grout, using stuff I already had in my kitchen!
This is all you need:
You could use a toothbrush instead of, or in addition to, the scrub brush.
This could not be easier! Sprinkle baking soda on the grout lines (don’t worry about being precise about this). Then spray or pour vinegar over the baking soda. It will bubble up and make all kinds of good cleaning noises!
Then take the scrub brush or toothbrush and scrub the grout lines. You don’t need major muscles for the scrubbing; just a little pressure on the brush is all that’s needed. You can see the difference here:
I could not believe the difference!
And, instead of smelling like bleach and maybe taking the color out of your clothing during this project, you can smell like an Easter egg! Vinegar smells way better than bleach and is less harsh on your skin, nasal passages, clothing, and the floor.
The whole floor took me about three hours total.
It looks so much better! #buymyhouse
NOTE: A few people noted that the vinegar will etch the grout. I researched this issue, and found conflicting information. So, try this on a small area of your floor first and make sure it doesn’t negatively affect the grout before tackling the whole floor.
