Is It Possible to Clean Tile Grout With No Chemicals? | BCS Cleaning Specialists
As with so many things in life, it can be done, but prepare yourself for some serious elbow grease….
Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda
1 First, get rid of surface dirt and muck with your regular cleaner. It’s much easier to clean away ground-in dirt if the surface stuff is out of the way.
2 In a small bowl, mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda together to form a thick paste. The exact quantities will depend on the consistency you prefer to work with.
3 Use an old toothbrush to spread a thick layer of the peroxide/soda gook onto the grout, working in small areas of 1 to 2 sq ft at a time. Leave to set for 5-10 minutes.
4 Using your toothbrush (not YOUR toothbrush obviously – the one you’ve just used for the initial slathering!), rub the paste energetically, as though you were trying to rub it INTO the grout.
5 Coat the next small area with the paste and repeat the above steps, until your entire grout surface has had a scrubbing-down.
6 Wipe off the remaining paste with a damp cloth and finish with your regular cleaner to restore your tiles and grout to a brilliant sparkle!
If this doesn’t seem to be quite enough to evict the grime from your grout or the thought of elbow grease makes you come over all lightheaded, give BCS a call at 801 561 1730 and our strong-armed crew of grout-scrubbers will take care of it for you in a jiffy!
