Did you know that cleaning grout can actually be quite easy? Using just three ingredients too! In this blog post, I’m sharing a fantastic grout cleaner DIY recipe using things you probably already have on hand. Seriously you guys, you will be amazed how easy this is and with no harsh chemicals either! Here is how to clean grout with essential oils!
Cleaning Without Harsh Chemicals
We have travertine tiles in our home, and in the hallway, near the garage they get super dirty, super fast. Many moons ago, I used to bleach them…. I know, I know, BAD! Goodness gracious the fumes from that would have my head spinning and I absolutely could not even do that when the kids were home. Since then, I have traditionally cleaned them with a steam cleaner… lots of heat and scrubbing with a tiny scrubber. The problem with that, is I was constantly stopping to refill the steam cleaner… had to wait for it to cool off, refill it, and wait for it to heat up again. I would only get a few sections done before I would give up for the day or have to move on to another task.
So I went on a mission to find a better alternative and nailed it you guys! Equal parts hydrogen peroxide, and water, and some lemon essential oil. That’s it!
Here’s the amazing recipe for you! And watch this in action with this short YouTube video!
1. Add 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide to the 16oz glass spray bottle.
2. Add 20 drops Lemon Essential Oil.
3. Add 1/2 cup water.
4. Give a little shake.
5. Spray the desired area, then scrub with a scratch pad.
