Hundreds of bloggers agree, you need just two simple ingredients to clean the grout between your tiles…

These ingredients can be found in most homes, and are cheaply available at stores if you don’t have them.

What do you need? Just some household baking soda and bleach!

  • Mix 3/4 cups of baking soda with 1/4 cup of bleach to create a thick paste that you can spread between the tiles.
  • Wear gloves and use a scrubbing brush to apply the paste to the dirty areas of grout between your tiles.
  • Let it stay there for around 10 to 20 minutes depending on the amount of dirt you need to get clear.
  • Wipe it off with a brush, and let it sit for a further few minutes until the grout has dried out completely.

Now wash it off with clean water.

The bleach and baking soda combo can also be used to clean pots that have caked-in grime, and it can be used for any areas that get mouldy easily.
