Pinterest Tested: Grout Cleaner

Nothing like the in-laws coming to town to motivate me to get my house squeaky clean. I noticed a few weeks ago that the 50 year old white grout in my bathroom was looking pretty dingy. I knew it was the perfect time to test a PIN I had seen a while back. The photo was pretty impressive, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Homemade Grout Cleaner
7 cups water
1/2 cup baking soda
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vinegar

Mix all ingredients together in a spray bottle (watch out---it foams!). Spray on the stained grout. Let it sit for an hour or two. Use a scrub brush to wipe away the dirt.

How did it work? Great! Here's what my floor looked like:

I loved this cleaner. I hardly had to scrub at a ll. There was little-to-no smell. It was a non-toxic, kid-friendly cleaner. I got it on my hands and didn't have to worry about chemical burns. The ingredients are all inexpensive and I had them all on hand already. And most importantly, my grout is white again! Yippee!

  1. Have you tried it on vertical grout, like in a tiled shower?

  2. I tried this and it didn't work at all. I think how it works depends on how old your grout is.

    1. How long did you leave it on? I have REALLY old grout (home built in the 50's) and it still worked for me, so I'm wondering if you just didn't let it soak long enough? I don't know. Sorry it didn't work out for you!

  3. Does this need to be rinsed afterward?

    1. I didn't rinse. I just made sure to wipe up all of the liquid.
