How To Clean Kitchen Floor Grout?

how to clean groutLearning how to clean kitchen floor grout is very important because it can save you a lot of time and help your kitchen to look its best. A safe and non toxic cleaner I read about recently in the Washington Post is oxygen bleach. I have also read about the benefits of oxygen bleach on several grout cleaning sites.

Oxygen bleach is a lot safer than bleach, so it is better to use in your home even if you have kids or pets than regular bleach. Oxygenated bleach comes in a dry powdery form. To apply, sprinkle it over the dirty tile and grout. Scrub it into the grout with a damp brush and allow the paste mixture to sit on your tile for at least 1/2 hour. As it sits it will oxidize.


You may want to come back and scrub it a few times especially if you have really bad grout stains. The oxygen bleach oxidizes the dirt and grime in the grout and removes it quickly and effectively. After a little while, even the toughest stains should come out, restoring your kitchen floor grout back to its original color. Please be aware that if your stain is very bad, it may take a few applications to get the kitchen floor grout clean. (Most of the time however, the oxidizing agent is working, so you do not have to spend a lot of time scrubbing). This is a lot better than painting over the grout lines because it cleans and removes the germs and mildew, and not just covering them up.

This includes kitchen and bathroom counter tops, bathroom showers and bathroom floor. You can even use oxygen bleach to clean out tiled areas. (Typically, for outdoors, I use a pressure washer because it is easier).

Another tip that helps when learning how to clean kitchen floor grout, is to use a deck brush or pole brush when scrubbing. These are not too expensive to buy. This is a lot more convenient than scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees. Also using a deck or pole brush is faster if you have a large area to clean.
