How To Clean Grout Fast
Fill your spray bottle with a 1:1 solution of vinegar and water and spray the work area generously. Let the solution sit for about five minutes, then follow up with a grout brush or a scrub brush. If you don’t have one of these, a toothbrush works in a pinch. Rinse with warm water.
In a small bowl, make a paste with baking soda and water. Dip your toothbrush or grout brush in the paste and work it into the grout. Spray the area with your vinegar + water solution. The vinegar will cause the baking soda to bubble up and will start to work away from that nasty soap scum. Use your brush and get all the way into the grout lines to remove buildup. Rinse with warm water.
If you’ve got visible stains, mold or mildewed grout, hydrogen peroxide is a game changer. Spray it on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes then go to work on it with your scrub brush of choice. You might have to repeat this step a few times if you’ve got a tough stain. If repeated efforts still aren’t making the stain disappear, try making a baking soda and hydrogen peroxide paste. Apply the paste to the grout lines, let sit, scrub and rinse with warm water.
