the best diy homemade grout cleaner

22 April 2020

Hello! I've been doing some spring cleaning around here. One of my most dreaded jobs is the tile in the master bathroom.  I've established that it's something I would definitely do differently if we built again but oh well!  All those little grout lines on those cute hex tiles are a pain in the rear to clean!!

I decided to try this recipe from an  old Magnolia Journal (I love that magazine!!)

1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
1 teaspoon dish soap (blue Dawn is best)

Here is what it looks like before. Dingy, kind of yellow-ish. 

And after!!  It really lets the white come through.

I just mix it in a glass bowl with a lid and use a little tile brush to go to town on all of those little hexes. I love that there are no harsh chemicals or fumes.

Here is the progress!

I really need to get more rugs in there to protect these little tiles so it's not such a chore. Happy (?) Scrubbing!
