Use these tips to learn how to make Natural DIY Tile and Grout Cleaners
Tile and grout stains become quite a chore to tackle. Unfortunately, many of the products out there that are made to deal with this kind of cleaning are toxic or just simply full of too many chemicals. Since most bathrooms aren’t super well-ventilated by means of windows to open, this means that you’re stuck in a room having to breathe in all of this.
The good news is, there are lots of natural DIY tile and grout cleaners out there to make in a jiffy! let’s look at some of my favorites as well as how to prevent some stains in the first place.
Ways to Prevent Dirty Grout and Mold
If you can prevent your grout from getting dirty or moldy, it will make it easier to keep clean.
Allow your bathroom to air-dry after every shower.
One of the most important ways that you can keep mold, mildew, and other problems away, is by making sure that your bathroom is as ventilated as possible, and by giving it enough time to air dry between showers. Almost every bathroom comes with a fan so make sure you use it after a shower to help get rid of a lot of the moisture in the air. Don’t shut the door right away after bathing, either.
Wipe up water.
Many mold problems start by allowing moisture too long on surfaces. Make sure that after showers you are wiping the floor, paying special attention to the molding and tiles. you don’t have to neurotically wipe up every drop of water, however, try not to let water sit on the floor.
Tackle stains right away.
If you accidentally spill something, make sure you clean it up as soon as possible. Also, make sure to handle any stains right away so they don’t have a chance to set.
