It’s summer time! For most of us this undoubtedly means lots of outdoor activity for ourselves, others at home as well as our guests. What it also means is we’ll travel in and out of the house more that any other time of year and while our salty shoes after a snow storm in the winter can dirty our floors, there is no better time than half way through summer to touch them up with the tracking of dirt in and out of the house! Lets uncover the dirt on cleaning tiled floors and the grout holding them together!
Grout and tiles are easy to maintain and keep looking as good as new with just a little upkeep using simple supplies from around the house. To clean your tiles like a pro all you’ll need is a pair of rubber gloves, some white vinegar and/or bleach, dish soap, a spray bottle and an old toothbrush!
Step 1: Mix the vinegar and dish soap in a spray bottle and give the bottle a shake to blend the two.
Step 2: Spray the grout areas you would like to clean and let the cleaning solution soak in for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Wearing your rubber gloves, use the old toothbrush to give the grout a light scrubbing in the areas that need cleaning. Be sure not to scrub too hard because the cleaning solution will lift up the dirt itself.
Step 4: Fill the spray bottle with water and give the floor a thorough spraying and wiping down. Good as new!
And that’s it! Now you can enjoy the rest of the summer weather in-and-out of the house activity knowing your floors have a fresh cleaning!
