How to Clean Tile Grout Without Scrubbing
Tile Grout between tiles leaves a beautiful, lasting, and durable effect that many homeowners like. However, cleaning grout when dirty or moldy can be a pain!
If you’re curious about how to clean floor grout without scrubbing, the answer is that there’s no way to eliminate the scrubbing completely.
However, there are several ways to make it easier!
Because tile grout is a sand-like compound, it’s especially susceptible to stains, mold, and soap scum. Many sites recommend cleaning your tile often to prevent these stains in the first place, but if you forget, the following cleaners should work well for you!
Peroxide and Baking Soda
The easiest way to clean grout without scrubbing (or with minimal scrubbing) is with a homemade recipe. A mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda often works best. These two ingredients combine to form a potent foaming mixture that polishes away stains and brightens the grout in one step. Mix 1 cup of baking soda and hydrogen, then add 1 tbsp dish soap. Spread onto the stained grout. Let the mixture stay in place for at least ten minutes, then scrub gently until any discoloration starts to fade.
Vinegar and Citrus Gentle Grout Cleaner
For this tile cleaner, mix the warm water, baking soda, lemon juice, and white vinegar in a spray bottle, and spritz the solution onto the dirty grout. Let the mixture sit for at least an hour. Scrub the grout gently afterward (you shouldn’t need much elbow grease), and most dirt and grime should lift away.
3½ cups hot water
½ cup baking soda
⅓ cup lemon juice
⅙ cup white vinegar
Bleach is a harsh cleanser, both on you and your tiles. We don’t recommend using it often, but it’s a great way to revitalize bathroom tiles that have been neglected or plagued by stubborn stains and build-up.
Also, be sure to ventilate your area well by opening windows and turning on fans before using bleach of any kind, and always use proper skin and eye protection!
