Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Before starting, make sure you have all the tools and materials you need for deep cleaning grout in your bathroom. You'll need:
- A stiff brush or an old toothbrush
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Small bowl
- Spray bottle
- Clean cloth or sponge
Step 2: Mix Your Cleaning Solution
In your small bowl, mix equal parts baking soda and water to make a thick paste. This paste will be used to clean and scrub the grout lines in your bathroom.
Step 3: Apply the Paste
Using your stiff brush or old toothbrush, apply the baking soda paste directly onto the grout lines. Be generous with the paste and make sure to cover all the grout you want to clean.
Step 4: Scrub the Grout Lines
Now it's time to put in some elbow grease! Scrub the grout lines with your brush, making sure to work the baking soda paste into all the crevices. The paste will help remove dirt and mildew that can build up in the humid Jamaican climate.
Step 5: Rinse with Vinegar
Fill your spray bottle with white vinegar and lightly spray it over the grout lines. The vinegar will react with the baking soda to create a fizzing action that will help lift even more grime from the grout. Let the vinegar sit for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.
Step 6: Scrub Again
Using your brush, scrub the grout lines once more to help remove any remaining dirt and grime. The combination of baking soda, vinegar, and a good scrub should have your grout looking much cleaner!
Step 7: Rinse with Water
Using a clean cloth or sponge, wipe away the baking soda and vinegar mixture from the grout lines. Rinse the cloth or sponge frequently to ensure you're not just spreading the grime around. Once all the residue is gone, your grout should look fresh and clean!
