Dirt loves to pile up in the kitchen and the bathroom, and chances are you have to get the mop and broom out to get them clean. If you’re looking for more on how to clean bathroom tiles or other tiles, follow our tips. 

  1. Sweep the floor for a clean slate. Before mopping up, sweep up the floor first. This will remove any dirt, dust and hair so you can get better mopping results. Sweeping will also help you avoid scratching your tiling before you mop. Then, gently wipe everything down with water.

How to clean tile grout

Mopping and sweeping may clean the tiles, but sometimes getting down to the grout and cleaning out any leftover dirt requires a little extra. 

  • Getting out the grout stain deep in the trenches. A simple cleaning life hack is creating a homemade grout cleaner with a baking soda and water paste, and then letting it sit in the grout for 15 minutes. Then brush away any dirt and grime with a firm toothbrush. 

Don’t let grout get you down. Keep your tile floor clean on a regular basis and you can say bye-bye to grimy floors. But when you need to clean up the grout stains, you no longer need to scrub for ages. Sweep, mop, and sprinkle a little baking soda and you’re good.
