Cleaning the grout

We all have this problem in cleaning the grout of our floor especially mommies out there. We usually use different cleaning materials that can be bought out in the market which are all ready to use from the factory.

Many attempted to discover which product is best for cleaning the floor. One time, I browsed fb and discovered a picture from a friend about this cleaning recipe for the grout.

I tried it and our floor became whiter than ever before after using the secret recipe that can be found in our kitchen. I assure you, it is not expensive as what other products offer us. Ready made products from the market are also good but if you are out of budget and you want to clean your floor and achieve better result then this is worth a try.

The Secret Recipe

Spring Cleaning Recipe for the Grout

7 cups water,

1/2 cup baking soda,

1/3 cup lemon juice and

1/4 cup vinegar

Throw in a spray bottle and spray your floor.

Let it sit for a minute or two.

Then scrub

      It's that magic combination of baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar, isn't it, I find I'm using it more and more. It hadn't occurred to me to try it on my bathroom tiles though (which are in bad shape!) so thanks - voted up and useful.

      I thought hmmm, this looks interesting. I am going to try it. I have gray tile floors with white grout in my kitchen. Or what used to be white grout. I haven't found any commercial cleaner that whitened it past a dull gray, and I've been thinking about having it removed and having charcoal gray or black grout inserted. What idiot would put white grout in a kitchen floor anyway! Good ideas. Voted you up++

      I am going to try your recipe. I have used vinegar, as well as baking soda with water. However, I have not tried them combined. It appears it worked great for you so I am going to try it. Thanks!
