Whether you’re using it for dry skin or to prevent a sunburn, we, as humans, use lotion pretty regularly. Lotion is a slippery substance and we can spill or drip it easily. When lotion lands on grout lines, it can easily stain them due to it being greasy and wet.
In a home or business, lotion can be easy to wipe off tiles, but the lotion can be hard to get out of grout because it quickly absorbs into the grout lines. After dripping lotion on grout, you may see a discoloration left behind.
Since grout is porous and usually light-colored, it will easily absorb the darker color of the lotion and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and grout sealing products, you can clean up the lotion and it will look like the lotion statin was never there. Remember, if you spill lotion, or anything in grout, you want to clean it up fast, so it takes less time to stain and clean.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of lotion stains in grout for good. A lotion stain in your grout can make your home or business look old and dirty, even if you clean it regularly.
Besides getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield grout cleaning products also rid the grout of any bacteria and other harmful germs that could be absorbed into the grout lines over time.
Most home-cleaning products like bleach, ammonia or white vinegar may get rid of the stain (eventually), but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout. Many of the chemicals in the cleaners are hash on the grout and can actually cause the grout to crack or break.
To remove lotions stains, you want to first blot the area dry with a clean cloth. Wipe the area clean of the lotion. To remove the lotion stain, 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 grout 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. Wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The lotion stain will be gone.
Now, if the lotion 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 color 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. We can match and make any color, as well. Check out all our grout colors. A new grout color can transform the look of a room or space.
If you don’t need to recolor your grout, seal your grout with a clear grout sealer after cleaning it, to protect it from future spills and accidents. You always want to seal your grout! Next time any lotion lands on your grout, the grout sealer will prevent the lotion from seeping into the grout lines. You will be able to easily wipe the lotion right up with no stain left behind.
