Who doesn’t love a pasta dinner? Although delicious, the meal can be very messy. Pasta sauce easily splashes, whether you’re eating it, cooking it, stirring it, or serving it. Don’t even think about wearing white while making a pasta dinner! Now, months, and even years, of cooking pasta sauces, and other sauces have likely splattered sauces onto your backsplashes and countertops. Sauce can be easy to wipe off tiles, but the spots can easily absorb into the grout lines and stain your grout.
Tomato-based stains are some of the most common and hardest to clean. Being red, pasta sauce shows up easily on grout lines that are light colored. Since it is porous, grout will absorb all sauce that lands on it. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, you can clean up the sauce and it will look like the splatters never happened. Remember, you want to clean sauce stains immediately, so the stain is easier to clean up.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of pasta sauce stains for good. You’ll never know it was there! Stains around your stove from sauce can make your kitchen look really old and dirty, even if you clean it regularly.
Besides getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield products also rid the grout of bacteria and other harmful germs that get absorbed into the grout lines over time.
Most home-cleaning articles may tell you to clean up the pasta stains with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these chemicals and products may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout (For example: ammonia contains no cleaning agents), and many of these chemicals can actually cause the grout to crack or break.
To remove the coffee stains, you want to first blot the area dry with a clean cloth. Wipe the area clean of the pasta sauce. You may notice your grout is stained red now. To remove the tomato sauce, you will want to use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner, which cleans and lifts deep and hard-to-clean stains out of the grout’s pores.
To use this cleaner, 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. Then, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The coffee discoloration will be gone.
Now, if the coffee stain still won’t fully go away, you can make the grout color look like new again with Grout Shield’s color sealer. You just squeeze the sealer into the grout lines. Then, spread it into the grout lines with a brush applicator or your finger and wipe away the excess with a towel or chamois. You can choose any color in the world to recolor your grout. Check out our grout colors.
If you don’t need to recolor your grout, you should seal it, after cleaning it, to protect it from future spills and accidents. Next time your pasta sauce splatters, the sealer will prevent the sauce from seeping into the grout lines, and you can wipe the sauce right up with no stains left behind. Grout Shield also offers clear grout sealer, which will protect your grout from future stains
