Re: cleaning tile grout

This is great, tilers should apply this when laying tiles is complete. If the grout has mould and stains and its not cleaned properly when you apply the shower plug, I assume you Seal the dirty grout? Is it coloured? Thanks Dee

Re: cleaning tile grout

Use Domestos. Fill an old tomato sauce squeeze bottle with it then run the tip of the bottle along your grout. Leave for about 10mins and use a grout brush/stiff brisle brush. I found one at bunnings, it is perfect. Has an adjustable handle so it’s not back breaking work. Don’t have a clear pic of it other than the one I’ve posted. It’s so easy my 9yr old wanted to help. We did this for a house my friend moved into.

Scrub along the grout and then rinse as normal with mop.

Re: cleaning tile grout

Our house is half tiles and the best thing I found are Magic Erasers ( With 3 kids this is the best invention) They disintegrate quickly but I buy mine online for cheap so always have plenty. It’s so worth It and has cut my cleaning time from 5-6 hrs with a scrubber to 1-2 hours with the magic eraser. Hot water and domestos is what I prefer to use.
