Effective Cleaning of Grout Using Non Toxic Items


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Health
Grout is the porous substance used to fill the space between two tiles. While regular cleaning may keep our tiles sparkling and as good as new, it is very common for dirt to collect in the lines between the tiles. Only dedicated cleaning removes this kind of dirt, and thus over time our tiles develop black outlines, that make the floor look old. Also, the grout in bathroom flooring has a tendency to develop mold. In trying to clean away the dirt, grout cleaning tips come in handy, as they point you in the right directions, and help you achieve the best possible results.

Tips for Cleaning Grout

One way to clean grout is to use powdered oxygen bleach, which is nontoxic, and thus does not produce harsh fumes, or fade off the tile color. The best part about it is that you don't have to put too much of work into it, as food and grease stains come off with relative ease. The way to use it is dissolve high-quality oxygen bleach in warm water. Then carefully pour the solution along the grout lines, and allow the solution to soak in for at least 15 minutes, though the longer the better! Now use a good brush to scrub the grout, and pour additional solution as you do it. The bleach effectively removes red wine and other hardy stains. If you are considering a tile cleaning machine, know that with a little bit of elbow grease, the oxygen bleach works much better. While it is best to clean up stains soon after they form, oxygen bleach is effective on dirt that has collected over a period of years!

Once you have successfully cleaned the grout, you can ensure your tiles maintain this pristine state by adding oxygen bleach powder to the water before you mop the floor with it. Add a moderate amount of this substance to water and wet the floor with it. Leave the water in the grout joints for a while before rinsing the floor. After about 30 minutes, wash away this solution with plain water. Hopefully this will avoid you having to put a lot of elbow grease into cleaning, in the future.

Among the tips on cleaning grout, some suggest the use of products that you find around the house, such as vinegar or baking soda. If you use vinegar, it must be first diluted with an equal amount of water. Alternately, make a paste by adding a little water to baking soda, and scrub it on the grout. You are likely to get the best results using a stiff brush and scrubbing in a circular motion. Once done, wash away the cleansing agent with water, and dry it as far as possible.

A common method of cleaning grout between tiles is to use generic household cleaning products such as Mr. Clean, Lysol, or powder-based cleaners. While using, follow the directions given on the product, and here too clean in small circles using a stiff brush. If you can get hold of a steam cleaner, you can use it to loosen debris and stains that cleaners aren't effective on. If this too does not have the desired effect, try a commercial tile and grout cleaner, which is pH balanced so that the chemicals in the product won't effect the flooring over time. For stubborn stains that just won't go away, use oxygen bleach powder, hydrogen peroxide, or chlorine bleach.

Use these grout cleaning tips to get your floor to look its best, and remember to take care to keep it clean. A few more precautionary instructions on how to clean grout in tile include making sure the room is well ventilated while using commercial cleaners, bleach, or other chemicals, and using gloves and protective eye wear.
