When fitting the tiles one major consideration is the grout and sealant placed around them that is used to keep yourmosaic effect tileson the wall or floor.
The only issue with them is that they can be more difficult to clean than the tiles themselves, which can be frustrating when a black mould stain, discolouration or mildew takers hold.
One solution seen in modern bathrooms is to use a different colour grout, with either black, blue or even pink faring better than white grout.
Here are some methods to help clean the grout and sealant in your bathroom.
Sometimes all grout needs to get clean is a good scrub to get fluff or the build-up of cleaning products out of it, but a trick that can help your grout shine is the use of whitening toothpaste.
Whitening toothpaste works by acting as a mild abrasive and this can also be used to remove black tinges from grout.
A common home cleaning solution is to mix white vinegar with bicarbonate of soda, which turns into a paste when mixed together that can be rubbed over the mouldy sealant and effectively remove traces of mould and grime.
It works effectively due to the combination of acid and alkali products, which create a reaction that produces a strong cleaning effect, and this general principle has been used as part of several homemade cleaning solutions.
One of the biggest questions when cleaning grout is what to use to get in between the cracks, and the answer is a cotton bud. It is small enough to get into every corner, whilst a toothbrush can be used to remove the paste later due to its stronger bristles and more abrasive nature.
