From food to drinks, the kitchen is a messy area. Spills happen. You can drop a bottle or miss your plate. One condiment that is known for its stains is hot sauce. Not only is hot sauce spicy, it’s (usually) bright red, which can easily stain clothing, furniture, tile and grout. Hot sauce isn’t so hard to clean up and wipe off tiles, but it can be hard to clean out of grout because it absorbs into the grout lines.
Since grout is porous and usually light-colored, it will easily absorb the dark color of hot sauce and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, you can clean up the hot sauce and it will look like the spill never happened. Remember, you want to clean up spills immediately, so the stain is easier to clean up.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of hot sauce stains in grout for good. You’ll never know it was there! Hot sauce stains (or any stain) in your grout can make your home and grout look 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 products and articles may tell you to clean up the stains with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these chemicals and products may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout, and many of these chemicals can harm the grout and cause it to crack or break.
To remove the hot 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 hot sauce stain will be gone.
Now, if the hot sauce stain still won’t fully disappear, 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 with a clear grout sealer after cleaning it, to protect it from future spills and accidents. Next time rust spreads into your grout, the sealer will prevent the hot sauce from seeping into the grout lines, and you can clean up the sauce with no stains left behind.
