Cleaning your home using natural cleaning products is not a lost art. It just requires a little knowledge of chemistry, or a good internet connection! If you've read a few pages of this website, you should know by now that our house cleaning service will do anything to avoid using bleach and harsh chemicals to clean the houses that we service and cleaning the stubborn stains off of the grout lines in the bathroom is no exception.
As you are about to see, cleaning grout naturally with baking soda is really very easy. I'm about to show you exactly what you need to do to get the job done.
Cleaning grout on your floor tiles in a tub/shower enclosure is easier than cleaning the wall tiles in, say the kitchen back splash, since you don't need to worry too much about making a mess on the counter top.
Things you will need:
*Note: Baking soda has a pH of about 9. It is not by any means an abrasive or harsh cleaning agent but in the best interests of your natural stone or wood finishings, you should always test a small section before attempting to clean large areas. If the stone or wood surrounding your grout is not sealed properly, it may cause staining.
you are working on, use about a half cup of water. You are looking for the consistency of toothpaste.
When cleaning the grout on wall tiles, you will need to make a paste with the baking soda so that it sticks to the walls. This is where the measuring cup comes in handy. If you are working above any sort of natural stone or wood, like a counter top or floor, you will want to cover it with plastic to prevent the baking soda from coming into contact with the material, since it may leave a stain.
