How Do You Clean Floor Grout?

Clean floor grout by making a baking soda paste, applying it to the grout, scrubbing the grout, spraying tile cleaner on badly stained areas and rinsing the grout. This takes only a few minutes. You need baking soda, warm water, a bucket or bowl, a toothbrush, tile cleaner and a rag.

  1. Make a baking soda paste

    Measure out 3 cups of baking soda, and pour it into a bowl. Combine this with 1 cup of warm water. Mix the two together until a paste forms.

  2. Apply the paste to the grout

    Use your fingers or a putty knife to apply the paste to the grout. Be thorough, and work it into all the cracks. Spread the paste in small sections at a time. Clean the grout in one section before moving onto another section.

  3. Scrub the grout

    Use an old toothbrush, and scrub the grout with the paste. Add more paste to the grout as needed.

  4. Treat badly stained areas

    For badly stained areas, spray tile cleaner onto the grout. Allow it to soak for several minutes into the grout before scrubbing the area.

  5. Rinse the grout

    Rinse the baking soda paste and tile cleaner from the grout using clean water and a rag or sponge.

  6. Dry the grout

    Dry the water from the grout with a towel to keep the tiles free of water spots.
