8 powerful ways to clean dirty grout naturally

There’s nothing that ages your home quite as much as dark, dirty grout. Whether it’s between the tiles in your kitchen, bathroom or floor, dirty grout is unsightly. Not only does it look bad, it’s also unhygienic.

Your grout is a perfect place for mold to grow and dirt to get trapped. And chances are you touch this grout a lot, meaning you’re carrying that dirt and mold to other spots in your home.

While it seems like tedious work, you can easily scrub your grout nice and clean if you choose the right products. Going for harsh chemicals might seem like the way to go, but you must have proper ventilation when you’re tackling a project this big.

For that reason, all-natural grout cleaners are the best option. They’re simple to use, and we guarantee you already have 95 percent of these ingredients in your home. So, what are you waiting for? Check out the list and get started cleaning up your grimy grout:

1. Baking soda
Good old baking soda will do the trick on that stubborn grout. Using a sponge, water and 1/2 cup of baking soda, you can wipe down your grout (or give it a little scrub) to freshen it good as new.

2. Vinegar
For really dark and dirty grout, reach for the vinegar. Dip a damp sponge into some full-strength white vinegar and wipe your grout down. Then, get in there with baking soda and a toothbrush and start scrubbing. It might be all natural, but this powerful combination will have awesome results.

3. Fight mold with hydrogen peroxide
If you have a mold problem in your grout, say in the bathroom, this is the solution you’re looking for. You should take 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3 percent) and 1 part water, and combine in a spray bottle. Spray over the grout and let it sit for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that rinse it and reveal clean grout.
