Rubbing Alcohol Is The Secret To Grime-Free Tile Floors
Tile floors might be easy to clean due to their durable surface, but sometimes they require a deeper scrubbing to get rid of stubborn grime. Thankfully, rubbing alcohol can help.
Rubbing alcohol is an effective floor cleaner for a couple of reasons. First, it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi, so it's an excellent disinfectant to use on grimy tile floors.
Second, rubbing alcohol is a solvent, which means it naturally breaks down oil and grease, dissolving them into smaller particles and allowing soap to whisk them away more easily.
Start by grabbing a gallon bucket and mixing warm water with 1¼ cups of rubbing alcohol, 2½ cups of vinegar, and a squirt of dish soap. Use a mop to clean your tile floors.
Not only will you be left with deep-cleaned floors, but you’ll also be granted a streak-free finish since rubbing alcohol evaporates quickly, leaving no residue.
For grout specifically, mix a 1:1 ratio of rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle. Then, saturate the dirty grout lines and let them sit for 10 minutes before wiping away.
