Cleaning kitchen grout is a job most of us hate. It’s something we have to do anyway and we hate doing it! Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like mowing the lawn or landscaping the flower garden. If you do it right, it doesn’t take all that much time, effort, or money at all.
One great tip for cleaning kitchen grout is to read the instructions on the container of grout that you purchase. They’re usually easy to read and not too difficult to follow. If you don’t know how to read them, there are plenty of good websites that have step by step directions for cleaning kitchen grout.
First you need to determine if the grout you have is water soluble or not. If it is, then that is the type of grout you need to clean. If it is not water soluble, you may have to do it the old fashioned way. Try putting a couple of drops of water into a paper towel and gently brushing it over the grout. If the water is absorbed by the grout, then it’s not water soluble.
It’s possible that your grout may be especially sensitive to acidic items such as tea and lemon juice. If this is the case, I would recommend soaking the acid in plain warm water and letting it sit for a few minutes before brushing over the grout. This is because when the acids attack the grout it can also attack the metal surfaces.
Tip number two for cleaning kitchen grout is to change the water regularly. Use a household mop and apply a couple of drops of bleach to the surface of the grout. If you don’t have any bleach in your house right now, then you can buy acid-free bleach from your local store.
Tips three and four are pretty self explanatory. Try using a toothbrush to scrub the grout until it is smooth again.
In terms of tips for cleaning kitchen grout, there are two things you should avoid. The first is using a brush to brush away the grout, which will cause more damage than good. The second is using a heavy vacuum cleaner on the grout, which can also damage the grout.
Hopefully, these tips for cleaning kitchen grout will help you a little bit. It isn’t as hard as it seems. Many of the manufacturers’ products are available on the website for purchase at reasonable prices, and most of them come with very easy to follow directions.
