tilegroutTo go along with my early spring cleaning/organizing I wanted to tackle my grout! We have quite a bit of tile in our home. The bathrooms, the kitchen, and the laundry room. The house is 8 years old and I’m not sure if the tile was just never sealed or if it’s just dirty after all these years. Either way, I was going to rid it of the yuckiness!

I came across a Pin that did not link but had a grout cleaner recipe pasted with the picture. I decided to give it a try. I figured if it didn’t work I would just go to Lowe’s and buy a real grout cleaner.

I am so happy that I gave it a try! It actually worked!! And all of the chemicals I used were kid friendly so my kiddos got to help too…which they thought was so much fun!

  • 7 cups water
  • ½ cup baking soda
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice (or ammonia - I am not a fan of this so I stuck with the lemon juice)
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or bucket
  • Use a toothbrush to apply to grout and scrub clean
  • Use a dry washcloth to wipe up excess

Lastly, I went over the grout with a grout sealer.
