How Vinegar Can Keep Your Porcelain Floors Dirt-Free
Vinegar is a safe and affordable way to keep porcelain floors dirt-free. It also boasts antibacterial properties, proven to neutralize harmful bacteria like E. coli and salmonella.
To clean your porcelain floor, mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1 gallon of warm water in a bucket. Mop the floor and then rinse it clean by using water from a fresh second bucket.
Avoid using undiluted vinegar on the tiles, as it can be too harsh for the finish. For best results, vacuum or sweep the tiles weekly and use the vinegar solution once a month.
For cleaning grout, it’s safe and effective to use undiluted vinegar. Apply it to the grout lines and let it sit for about 10 minutes to break down any trapped dirt or grime.
Afterward, scrub the lines with a toothbrush or a sturdy grout brush, and wipe the area clean with a damp cloth to prevent the dirt from resettling.
