There are not many things worse than dirty tiles. Dirty tiles in your home are unhygienic and will gross out everyone who sees them. In order to avoid this kind of embarrassment you must take action in order to maintain clean and attractive tile floors. To start off with, there are various ways to clean tile and grout. You should feel free to choose the method that works best within your means and ability. In this article, we’ll review a couple of ways to get the job done.
Clean Regularly and Often
You know the saying: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” In other words, cleaning your tiles before they get TOO dirty will make your job much easier than if you leave it for when they’re beyond repair. Tile and grout do not get better over time, it gets much, much worse. This may be difficult for busy homeowners who have young kids and/or pets, but if you want to avoid having a tile mess on your hands, set aside an hour once a month to clean your tile floors and grout.
Vinegar and Baking Powder
This is the most basic method of cleaning tile and grout. To start with you need a few items.
First, add a half cup of baking soda. Second, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 spoon of white vinegar to three cups of water. Mix well and apply it on the tiles thoroughly. Give the wash fifteen minutes to half an hour to set and then scrub off with a brush.
