Accidents happen. Spills, dirt, pet’s relieving themselves, mold – you name it, your tile and grout lines are up against a lot of gross things. Since grout absorbs everything it comes in contact with, it will stain easily. So, what can you do if, for example, you spilled soy sauce or red wine into your white grout lines? Or, if your children trekked mud in after a rainy day?
Your first plan of attack is to clean your grout with a proper grout cleaner. Most regular household cleaners are not formulated to get tough grout stains out. Also, most regular cleaners are too harsh and will actually breakdown your grout. You want to use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner, which cleans and lifts deep stains out of the grout’s pores. To use this product, you mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, brush the cleaner into the grout with a brush applicator. Let the mixture sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. After the cleaner sits, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The discoloration will be gone.
Now, if the stain is stubborn and still isn’t 100% gone or it’s an extremely old stain that won’t fully go away, you can make the color look like new again with Grout Shield’s color sealer. You just squeeze the sealer into the grout lines, like mustard on a hot dog. Then, you spread it into the grout lines with a brush applicator and wipe away the excess with a towel or chamois.
Once the color sealer is applied, it will look new again. Not only is the color bright and clean, but the sealer will protect the grout from future stains. Liquids will bead right off! Even if you don’t have to recolor your grout, you should seal it to protect it from future stains. Grout Shield also offers clear grout sealer.
