We’ve Got the Perfect Method for Shiny Bathroom Tiles!

Sometimes just mopping your bathroom tiles is not enough. There is always some dirt that gets left behind and accumulates in the tile-grout. Fortunately, you can easily clean the grout in your bathroom without any hassle by using these simple steps, to make your tiles look shiny and brand new again.

To complete the cleaning process, do remember to use generous amounts of water to wash away all the dirt.

Step 1:

Mix 3-cups of baking soda with 1-cup water to make a thick paste. This cleaner works on all types of grout. Apply the paste to the grout lines between your bathroom tiles with your finger. Although baking soda isn’t harmful, it’s advisable to wear rubber gloves to prevent rashes.

Step 2:

Make a solution of 2-cups white vinegar and 1-cup water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on the baking soda paste you applied earlier to the grout. You will see bubbles forming on the affected areas. Don’t worry about the bubbles as they’re part of the cleaning process.

Step 3:

Wait for the solution to stop bubbling. The reaction generally lasts for approximately 10 minutes. When the bubbling stops, it means the chemical cleaning action is complete.

Step 4:

Scrub the grout lines with a brush or an old toothbrush. Don’t forget to pay close attention to the corners and edges, as these areas are usually difficult to clean and often harbour the most dirt.

With these simple steps, your bathroom tiles will shine again.
