How to clean grout.

It's a task we don't like to do...cleaning grout.

Want a simple trick for cleaning grout in your shower, bath, or kitchen? This home-made grout cleaner works great and it only requires 2 ingredients: baking soda and bleach! Now we have no excuses! When selling your home you will want to make sure every inch of your home is spotless!

3/4 C baking soda

1/4 C bleach

an old toothbrush

Mix the baking soda and bleach together in the bowl until it forms sort of a thick paste. Then apply the paste to the dirty grout lines and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

The bleach will do most of the work just sitting there, but after 5-10 minutes, scrub it with your toothbrush to really work the cleaner deeper into the grout. Wait another 5-10 minutes and then rinse the cleaner off of the grout. If you have a handheld shower head, use that, otherwise just use a damp rag and rinse it out often as you wipe the cleaner away.
