Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you start cleaning your shower grout in your Jamaican home, you'll need to gather some supplies. Here's what you'll need:

  • A soft-bristle brush or an old toothbrush
  • Warm water
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Spray bottle
  • Microfiber cloth

Step 2: Mix the Cleaning Solution

First, mix equal parts of baking soda and water in a small bowl to make a thick paste. This paste will help you scrub away the dirt and mildew on your shower grout. Next, mix equal parts of vinegar and water in your spray bottle. This will be used to rinse away the baking soda paste after scrubbing.

Step 3: Apply the Paste to the Grout

Using your soft-bristle brush or old toothbrush, scoop up some of the baking soda paste and apply it to your shower grout. Make sure to cover all the grout lines with the paste. Leave it on for about 10 minutes to let it work its magic on the dirt and mildew.

Step 4: Scrub the Grout

After the paste has been sitting for 10 minutes, it's time to scrub! Using your brush, scrub the grout lines in a circular motion to remove dirt and mildew. Be sure to scrub all areas of the grout for best results.

Step 5: Rinse with Vinegar Solution

Once you've finished scrubbing, spray your vinegar solution onto the grout lines. This will help to rinse away the baking soda paste and any remaining dirt or mildew. Wipe away the solution with a microfiber cloth, and then rinse the area with warm water to remove any residue.

Step 6: Dry the Shower

After rinsing, use a clean microfiber cloth to dry the shower tiles and grout. This will help prevent mildew from growing back. Make sure to dry your shower after every use to keep your grout looking fresh and clean!
