Grout Cleaning Tips
To clean grout by yourself, here’s what you can do:
- Before grout cleaning, wipe away any excess wet buildup with paper towels or a white terry-cloth towel. If grout is crumbling, consider replacing it.
- While cleaning, make sure you wear rubber or latex gloves and safety goggles. Open all windows to avoid exposure to the harsh chemical fumes of bleach-containing solutions.
- Spray on a commercial grout cleaner or a heavy-duty all-purpose cleaning solution with bleach. Wait for several minutes.
- Scrub grout with a stiff scrubbing brush or a grout brush, then rinse thoroughly.
- Eradicate mold, mildew or tough stains with a bleach-containing cleanser, or you can make your own by using 1/4 cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) of chlorine bleach and 1 qt. (32 fl oz/1 l) of warm water. Let the disinfectant sit for at least 10 minutes to thoroughly kill the mold and mildew.
- Scrub the grout with a stiff brush or a grout brush, rinse, then dry with a white towel or paper towels.
- The grout should now be sparkling clean. Make sure to keep it that way. Apply one to three coats of commercial grout sealer with a small brush or paintbrush.
- Reapply the grout sealer annually.
- Keep mold, mildew and stains in check through regular cleanings with a bleach based cleanser.
- Make sure you seal the grout after cleaning.
- Warning! Never mix bleach with an ammonia-based product such as glass cleaner.
