Homemade Grout Cleaner – 3 Simple Ingredients & Works Great
If you’re looking for an easy way to clean grout between your tile, check out this all-natural grout cleaner recipe. Using items you probably already have in your home, you can make nearly a gallon of grout cleaner for just a few pennies. It’s easy, natural and it works great!
You’ll need a good brush to scrub. I found mine at the Dollar Tree for – you guessed it – a dollar! And, actually I’ve had ti for a while and have use it on many cleaning projects. I used a plastic bucket to mix the ingredients in. My plastic bucket is a recycled ice cream container. So, that didn’t cost anything either. I also reused a spray bottle I had from 409 degreaser cleaner. Just make sure to remove the label or write over it so you know what’s in there.
Price breakdown: each of the ingredients were things I had at home in larger containers (some were in bulk!) So, it’s hard to figure exactly how much this would cost to make. A few cents of each ingredients, and if you reuse a spray bottle to store it, you can literally clean your grout for one penny or less each time.
To mix up this awesome all-natural grout cleaner, grab a few simple ingredients you have around the house: 7 cups water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup vinegar. You can pour it in a spray bottle (reusing an old bottle from Windex or Fantastic works great!) and spray your floor or shower, let it sit for a minute or two… then scrub with a brush. Or, you can leave it in the bucket and use it from there. Obviously, it will last longer if you use a spray bottle rather than dump out the dirty stuff in the bucket.
Since we’re not using bleach, you don’t have to worry about ruining your grout! Bleach works very well to clean at the time, but it’s harsh and can break down the structure of the grout making it absorb water and attract mildew and mold. Eventually your grout could crumble and fall out. I don’t recommend cleaning grout with bleach.
