Cleaning Grout in Bathroom –

TUB – To clean grout lines in (if you have built your tub using tiles) and around your tub, you can consider using a “bleach solution”. You can easily get pre-mixed bleach solution at a nearby cleaning supplier. There are different types of bleach solutions available in the market –

Oxygen Bleach – Technically, oxygen bleach is Sodium Percarbonate, which is a mix of Sodium Carbonate and Hydrogen Peroxide. You should use this solution if the stains on grout lines are very difficult to remove.

And do not use it directly on the grout or tile. Dilute it first before applying it. Prepare a mixture involving 1 cup of oxygen bleach and 4 cups of water. For rigid stains, you can use a concentrated mixture.

Chlorine Bleach – In the language of chemistry, Chlorine Bleach is Sodium Hypochlorite. And in general, it is the laundry bleach that a large number of people while laundering their cloths and fabrics. It is also used for disinfecting surfaces and cloths.

To prepare the cleanser from chlorine bleach, mix 2 tablespoons of bleach into 1.5 to 2 gallons of water. Increase the proportion of bleach to treat mild to medium stains and grease.

Take the solution in a spray bottle, and spray it over the muddy grout lines. Let it sit for about half an hour. Spray another layer of solution over the grout and rub with an old toothbrush.

Rinse and wash the tiled layout after cleaning the grout. Wipe the surface with a clean dry cloth and it is ready to be used again.
