How Tide Laundry Detergent Can Make Dirty Grout Look Brand New
Tide laundry detergent, particularly in its powdered form, proves to be an unexpected ally for tackling one of the most dreaded cleaning tasks: making dirty grout look brand new.
To clean the grout, mix 2-3 teaspoons of Tide powder, 4 cups of hot water, and 1 cup of bleach in a bucket. For easier application, this mixture can be prepared in a spray bottle.
Grab a bristle brush or an old toothbrush, dip it into the solution, and scrub the grout lines between your tiles. As you work, use a clean rag to wipe away any loosened residue.
Once clean, mop the floor to remove any remaining dirt, grease, and grime. You may also want to seal your grout lines with a dedicated sealant to keep them clean for longer.
It's important to note that while this cleaning solution is safe for use on most household surfaces, it should be avoided on natural stones like marble, as bleach can cause damage.
