When your kitchen backsplash, floors, and shower tiles begin to lose their lustre, it might be time for a tile and grout clean. Keeping these areas clean is not only beneficial for the appearance and overall cleanliness of your home, but it’s also more hygienic and healthier to rid your home of the bacteria. Once you’ve used our tips below, a great way to upkeep your tile grout cleaning is to get some airflow in these areas – either turn on the bathroom fan or open up some windows after you finish your dishwashing. You can also wipe down these tiled areas, removing the moisture that would later attract mould. Below, we’ve outlined our top tips to keep your tiles shiny and your grout spotless.
Tile Cleaning – Remove tile stains and discolourations
Your tiles can stain from accumulating dirt, dust, or mould over time. If you notice stains, you can simply remove these using a scouring pad. One popular scouring solution can be made up with Jif – simply apply and scrub with a scouring pad and then wash or wipe it away. Although this will work for most types of tile, we recommend you try this first on a small, less obvious area to ensure that it doesn’t adversely affect the finish.
Grout Cleaning – Remove mould and mildew from grout
This tip will make a big difference in the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom. Mix together half vinegar and half water, spray the grout and let it sit for a few minutes before you begin scrubbing at it.
Brighten the grout between your tiles
A finishing touch to a deep clean is to brighten your grout. Start by creating a baking soda paste and let it sit on the grout for a few minutes before you scrub it off with your cleaning brush. Make sure to work this between all tiles for even colouring.
