How To Clean Tile Grout

Tile grout

Don't let grubby grout spoil the look of your gorgeous tiles.

To clean up discoloured grout (caused by soap scum, mildew and other delights), arm yourself with an old toothbrush and a suitable cleaner and scrub over the grout lines.

There are plenty of proprietary cleaners on the market, or be green(ish) and make your own mixture of bicarbonate of soda and a splash of vinegar or bleach. Ideally, you need to find a product with mould inhibitors, as these will discourage mould or mildew from returning.

Always check manufacturer's instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take professional cleaning advice first.
