However, after using this wonderful homemade tile and grout cleaner, my floors now look amazing! As I was cleaning, I was amazed that I could see the difference before my eyes.

  1. This worked amazing! I just shared your link on facebook. I can’t believe how easy it was!!!! Can I save the rest of the cleaner for next time, or do you have to make a fresh batch every time?

  2. That turned out absolutely fantastic. I have the same issue with grout so I’m so glad I stumbled upon this. Will definitely be trying this….already have all the ingredients!

  3. Thanks for the info. I love all the homemade cleaner recipes. I will have to try this one in the future.
