How to Clean Dirty Grout with Homemade Cleaner | Ask This Old House


Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva explains how to clean dirty tile grout using only household supplies.

#ThisOldHouse #AskTOH
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Time: 4-5 hours

Cost: $0 and up

Skill Level: Beginner

Tools:
Stiff scrub brush []
Sponge []
(OPTIONAL) Grout knife []

Shopping List:
Dish soap []
Baking soda []
White vinegar []
Grout sealer []

Steps for Cleaning Grout with Homemade Cleaner:
1. Fill a cup with warm water.
2. Add the baking soda to the cup to give the mixture grit.
3. Add a few drops of the dish soap to the cup. Mix everything together.
4. Pour the vinegar along the edges of the grout. Don’t do too much at once or the floor will be really wet and more difficult to work on.
5. Pour the mixture on top of the vinegar along the grout lines.
6. Scrub the grout lines with the stiff scrub brush.
7. After scrubbing, let the mixture sit for about five minutes. Then, scrub it again with the brush.
8. Wipe off the excess vinegar mixture with a sponge. Allow the floor to dry. It could take about 45 minutes.
9. (OPTIONAL) If that doesn’t work, try gently scraping the top layer of the grout with a grout knife. They’re meant for removing grout, so do this carefully.
10. Apply the grout sealer along all the grout lines.
11. Allow the sealer to dry for 3-4 hours. Then apply a second coat.
12. Repeat this sealing process every year, especially for light colored grout.

Resources:
Tom’s homemade solution for cleaning grout included concentrated dish soap, baking soda, and white vinegar. These can found at most grocery and department stores.

Rather than using a toothbrush, Tom recommends using a cleaning brush [] with stronger bristles. They sell specialty grout cleaning brushes at most home centers in the Tile aisle. The one Tom used in the video is manufactured by QEP ().

If the stains are really deep in the grout, Tom recommends using a grout removal tool and lightly scraping it against the grout to remove the layer of grout that’s been stained. Do this cautiously. The grout removal tool Tom used [] in the video is also manufactured by QEP ( ).

Once the grout is clean, Tom suggests that sealing the grout once per year will prevent it from staining again. Tom used a TileLab Grout Sealer [], which is manufactured by Custom Building Products () and can be found at most home centers.

How to Clean Produce (Fruits and Vegetables) Easy Household Cleaning Ideas – Clean My Space

Subscribe for a Cleaner Life!

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows how to wash produce in a quick and effective way using an eco-friendly, homemade produce wash. Produce has pesticides and other unfriendly grime, so this is how to wash produce properly and safely.

Thomas asked: Is there a cheaper way to clean my produce properly?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Fruits and vegetables
2) 2 tablespoons of baking soda
3) 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4) 1 cup of water
5) spray bottle
6) Strainer
7) funnel (optional)

Shelf life: 2 weeks

In the spray bottle, pour the lemon juice, baking soda and water. Shake it up and set the spray bottle to mist. Put the fruits and vegetables into the strainer and douse using the spray bottle over a sink. Let the produce sit for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water. Allow the produce to air dry in the strainer and enjoy!

Did you know? Lemon juice acts as a natural disinfectant, while baking soda provides the fine grit needed to clean everything off the surface of your produce.

FYI: Thick-skinned fruit like an orange or banana don’t need to be washed since you don’t eat the skin. Thin skinned fruits and vegetables like an apple, grape or tomato should be washed before eating.

How to Descale a Kettle (Easy Household Cleaning Ideas That Save Time & Money) Clean My Space

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, answers Tim’s question on how to descale a kettle. Please note, the daytime light in my kitchen was going nuts, so if you see strange lighting, that’s why!

Tim asked: How can I descale my kettle?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Kettle with lime scale
2) 1 cup of vinegar
3) 1 tablespoon of baking soda (optional)
4) Cotton cloth (optional)

Put a cup of vinegar into the kettle and set the kettle to boil. The vinegar helps to heat the element in order to break down the lime scale, while the steam helps clean any leftover residue. Once it turns off, pour the vinegar into your sink and rinse the kettle a few times.

To clean any remaining lime scale:
Take a wet cloth and dip it into a tablespoon of baking soda. Use the cloth to clean any remaining lime scale build up then rinse thoroughly with water. Boil through again if needed.

FYI: Lime scale is not harmful for you to ingest. It’s mainly formed out of calcium and salt, however, it does look gross! It also takes more energy to boil water when you have lime scale build up, since the element needs to work harder to heat and it can cause you to burn your element. Ideally, you want to descale your kettle at least once every 6 months or as needed.

**BONUS TIP**
For cleaning your drain:
Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and pour the boiling vinegar into the sink. It’ll help to clean and deodorize your drain. Consider that 2 tips for the price of 1!
