Whiten Grout Lines
Tile is durable, nice-looking, and generally easy to clean, but cleaning grout? That’s a different story. The collection of dust, dirt, spills, mould, and mildew on your grout can quickly make it look dingy and dirty. Because of its light colouring and porous composition, it’s particularly prone to staining. Many homeowners don’t realize just how dirty their grout is until they give it a good cleaning. Some are even surprised to learn that their grout is white under all that gunk.
Simply follow these steps:
Make a foaming paste from 1 cup baking soda and 1-2 tablespoons of Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - Oxygen PlusTM.
Wait for the bubbles to subside.
Using a toothbrush, scrub the grout lines with the paste.
Note: Don’t use this solution on dark or coloured grout lines, as it may bleach them.
What exactly is hydrogen peroxide? Chemically speaking, hydrogen peroxide (H202) is very similar in composition to water (H20)—the only difference is hydrogen peroxide has an extra molecule of oxygen. Although it’s a chemical, hydrogen peroxide is gentle and breaks down into two natural elements: water and oxygen. Containing no alcohols, acids, or other dangerous chemical additives, hydrogen peroxide is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and safe to use around your whole family, including your pets.
Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - Oxygen PlusTM provides a double cleaning whammy by effectively brightening grout lines and killing off any harmful microorganisms. Hydrogen peroxide kills 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, mould spores, yeast, and fungi to help prevent the transmission of common and serious illnesses. It’s just as effective as bleach, but without the toxic fumes. Whether you’re looking to clean grout lines in your shower or on your tiled kitchen floor, Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - Oxygen PlusTM is the perfect solution for the job.
