Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning Outlines How to Clean Grout with Baking Soda, Vinegar & More
Hot Water to Clean Grout: There are several ways that you can clean your grout and one of them is pretty simple. You can use a spray bottle that has been filled with hot water. The water is sprayed on the grout and let sit for only a minute of two. Then you want to follow up the process by taking a soft bristle brush to the grout and scrubbing what dirt you can. You can repeat the process if needed but it is important to know that you need to remove the soiled water. This is best accomplished when you use a clean cloth to wipe it down. The cloth will pick up the water and the dirt that you have scrubbed off the grout.
Use Hot Water & Baking Soda Grout Cleaner: If you have tried with just hot water and the grout is still dirty you can add a second cleaning agent. This is done by following the same steps in the first method but adding baking soda after you spray the water down. The hot water and the baking soda will help to create a paste that can be used to breakdown stains and dirt that might be built up on the grout. You want to spray the water, place the baking soda then let it sit for around 10 minutes. You can start to clean the grout with the soft bristle brush and follow up with the same clean cloth.
Homemade Grout Cleaner with Lemon Juice, Vinegar & Baking Soda: If you know that your grout has seen better days you want to increase the power behind the cleaning product. You can do that by taking hot water, lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda to a spray bottle. This can be sprayed right on the grout but should be scrubbed and cleaned off right away. You don’t want the acid to breakdown the grout. You need to make sure that you work in smaller areas and run a test patch to be sure.
