I have also been on a bit of a spring cleaning kick. It started when we sold our dining room table and I lifted up the rug that was under it that hadn't been moved for 2 1/2 years. Check this out...
NIce looking tile and grout. Then I looked at the rest of the floor.
Look at that!
Do you see this? DISGUSTING! I promise we are not filthy people. Or are we? It's been 3 years this month since we moved in this house and we have never cleaned our grout. I've really never thought about it. It wasn't until I saw what my grout was SUPPOSED to look like that I was completely grossed out and spent 6 HOURS on a saturday with these:
Grout Magic from Lowes and a stiff bristle brush (plastic, NOT wire! The wire will remove your grout!)
You spray it on, lead it sit for 5 minutes, scrub it, wipe it up with a warm wet rag, and then mop your floors with whatever you like to use. It worked pretty well I think. It was just a lot a of work. I couldn't even go to church the next day because my back was killing me! My guess is that if we had been better about cleaning our grout that it wouldn't of been such a project. Are there any special remedies you use?
Ha ha, SOOOOOOO gross!.
How often do you guys clean your grout? We mop regularly, but had never cleaned what lies between. I honestly couldn't see myself doing this more than once a year. If you are a 16 year old kid and wanting to start a business, boy do I have an idea for you! ;) I'd do it, but I'm too dang old and my back and knees would divorce me.
I think I could seriously lick my floors right now and wouldn't bat an eye.
