Cleaning grout

Grout seems to act like a magnet for mould and dirt, especially in the bathroom. Luckily, the most stubborn stains and mould will surrender to a little bleach and elbow grease.

  1. Mix 1 cup of bleach with a gallon of water
  2. Put on some rubber gloves and make sure the area is well ventilated
  3. Scrub the grout with a scouring sponge or scrub brush soaked with the bleach solution. Really dig in to get the dirt and mould out
  4. Let the bleach solution sit on the grout for 15 minutes
  5. Rinse the grout with clean water and let it dry
  6. Now the grout is clean, you need to seal it. Two coats of grout sealer applied with a small paintbrush will help keep it clean.
