Today I am excited to have Jessica sharing another homemade cleaner that she uses for cleaning her grout. I am in love with these easy homemade cleaners that she is using and sharing, they work so well and are easy to make.
Hey there! It’s Jessica and I have another spring cleaning DIY for you. It’s for something that gets gross. It can get really gross…The grout on my kitchen floor. I clean. I’m a clean person. How does this happen? I am not a fan of tile flooring.
I AM a fan of finding ways to make great cleaning products myself. Did you know that cream of tartar has a bleaching quality to it? Mix it with hot vinegar and you’ve got yourself a fantastic grout cleaner!
How to make a grout home cleaner
DIY Grout Cleaner
1/4 cup white vinegar, warm
2 tsp cream of tartar
Heat 2 cups of vinegar at a time in the microwave (then wipe out your microwave….2 jobs done at once!) and mix 1/4 cup vinegar and 2 tsp cream of tartar in a small dish. It really works best warm and the liquid will get dirty fast. You’ll want to change it frequently. Now have at it with a brush. I used a tooth brush because it’s just the right size. I know, I know. This isn’t exactly a quick job, but you won’t have to do it very often. Sometimes you just can’t beat getting on your hands and knees and using a little elbow grease.
How to use grout homemade cleaner
When I started cleaning the grout, they thought it looked like a lot of fun. Of course i told them it was a blast and I quickly got them each a toothbrush and let them have fun!
It didn’t last too long.
After you have scrubbed, give it a quick wipe with a towel so no one slips. Once the grout dry’s, you will see some white residue. It comes up easily with some clean water and a quick scrub. When you’re done, mop up. I had to mop twice. The first time left the floor with a residue. Another round with a clean mopping pad did the trick.
Check out the difference! The kids were amazed. They said it was glowing!
Hi! I’m Jessica from Prairie Girl to Southern Belle. I’m a busy wife and a mom to two great kiddos, and I love sharing how we’re working to make our house a home one idea at a time. When I’m not working on a project, you can find me playing with the kids, out on a date with my hubby or making something fun in the kitchen. I love making new friends so grab a cup of coffee and come on by for a visit!
This is amazing! I just tried it in my kitchen, wasn’t expecting to go through so much cream of tartar so only got halfway through, and I was expecting to do my kitchen and both my bathrooms, plus maybe the shower grout? So much for that plan but I’m glad i found this on pinterest, definitely going to buy more and complete the job.
