Grout: the bane of my existance
"Don't step on the cracks, you'll break your mother's back"... I'm convinced that a mom who was sick of cleaning grout came up with this rhyme!
I hate grout. Especially think grout lines. I'd love nothing more than to take a sledge hammer to my kitchen tile but alas, I haven't won the lottery yet and our to-do list is a mile long. So, until that glorious day arrives (because it will!) I experiment with ways to maintain clean grout lines. Did I mention I have 2 kids and 2 cats who are somehow constantly muddy??
I've tried commercial grout cleaners, toilet cleaner, Ajax and a stiff brush, and natural options like lemon juice with baking soda. I must say, up until today the lemon juice and baking soda was my favorite and go-to.
Today I tried something new and I was pleasantly surprised. My combo? Magic eraser sponges (name brand or off brand are fine), a small amount of Clorox cleanup and old-fashioned hands and knees scrubbing.
