It Worked: Grout Cleaner

By May 16, 2013 , , , ,

Do you ever wait for one of the bloggers “you know” to try the latest “amazing pin”, yeah me too, too many pin failures.

So when fellow Alpha Gamma Delta Blog Network member More Than A Momhad success with it I knew I had to tackle the nearly 60 years of grungy build up in our 1954 bathrooms.

I wasn’t convinced I would have as great results with my super old dirt, but with a lot of elbow grease, a grout brush and a scrub brush it looks sooo much better!

To boot the ammonia softened the paint splatter from the at least 3 different colors this bath has been!

So the recipe,

For a Full Size Spray Bottle (I recommend this, my tiny bathroom still used the whole thing)

3 1/2 cups water (28 oz)
1/4 cup baking soda
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp ammonia (1.33 oz)
2 Tbsp vinegar (1 oz)

For the small dollar section spray bottles
1 3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp baking soda
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp ammonia
1 Tbsp vinegar


  1. Rinse your floor.
  2. Spray down let it sit.
  3. Scrub, scrub, scrub.
  4. Sop up the dirty gross water.
  5. Rinse.
  6. Repeat.

Tip, it’s not going to look impressive until it dries.

I plan on using the cleaner regularly as preventative maintenance. Grout-cleaner (4)
