Tiles can make a room look stunning but over time these tile grout can become dirty which dulls down the appearance of your tiles and makes them look a little tired. Cleaning your grout can make your tiles look clean and fresh and you’ll be amazed at the difference. Grout lines refer to the space between the tiles.

Some of these commercial cleaners also contain acid, which isn’t good for the tiles or your health.
Now you might be thinking that these challenges give you few options for cleaning your floor tiles, but that really isn’t the case. We’ve put together 3 of the best ways to clean floor tile grout.
Natural tile grout cleaning
It’s well documented that white vinegar is an excellent cleaner for the home and can be used on anything – including grout. Simply take some baking soda and mix it to a smooth paste with a mixture of half white vinegar and half water. Using an old toothbrush apply the mixture to the grout lines and gently scrub to lift away any dirt and grime. Once this has been done, rinse the entire area with clean cold water. This method of tile grout cleaning is safe for you and for your tiles.
This is another effective method of cleaning your tile grout and if you don’t have a steam machine, it’s easy to rent one. Be sure to ask for a grout cleaning attachment when you pick up the machine. Do not use this method if your tiles are cracked or old as it may damage them further. Start by setting the temperature to 175°C. Then
