Love your tile floors but hate cleaning them? The shine diminishes, the stains are tough to remove, and the grout is more grime than grout. Here are some homemade fixes to make tile cleaning less of a nightmare.
Plain white vinegar is a great simple cleaning agent for basic tile cleaning and mopping. Mix one cup vinegar to one gallon of water.
2. Baking Soda
Baking soda acts as a mild abrasive. Sprinkle it on your tile and scrub with a sponge, or put it on the sponge and wipe the tile to remove grime, and deodorize at the same time.
3. Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide can help clean your grout. After you’ve done basic tile cleaning, apply 3% hydrogen peroxide directly onto your grout and let it sit for 20-30 minutes and wipe, then rinse with water. If there is additional residue, scrub with a small brush before wiping clean.
4. Stain Removal
When doing a thorough tile cleaning you’ll often come across stubborn stains. A paste made of lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda can do the trick. Just apply the paste to the stain and let sit for half an hour. Scrub with a brush and wipe clean.
