Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you the best way to clean grout. Grab an old toothbrush and keep it somewhere where nobody's going to brush their teeth with it but use this as your grout cleaning toothbrush. And also make a homemade grout cleaner, there's no reason to spend 5, 6, 7 dollars on something to clean grout with that's supposed to work wonders when you have baking soda and vinegar at home. If you mix these two together, they make a really, really good paste that is so awesome for cleaning so many different things. You just want to get the paste on the toothbrush and scrub. This grout in particular is not supposed to be white, this is a darker colored grout which is also a good idea if you get to pick the color of grout, don't pick white. If you do, this will get your white grout white again, it works really, really well. And you're going to have to do this all over the floor, I mean you're going to have to clean grout by hand, it's a very tedious job but luckily if you do my next tip you won't have to do this very often. After you have scrubbed your grout, to keep it white and keep it looking nice, each time that you sweep and mop the floor, get a Clorox bleach pen, I know you've seen these before, it's just a little bleach pen and write with your bleach pen in the grout. Just like you're coloring, just draw across each piece of grout every few weeks and that'll keep them white. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is the best way to clean grout.
