Dirty Grout Lines Making You Crazy When Selling Your Home?
Take A Tip Tuesday- How To Fix The Problem.
If you are thinking of selling your home and happen to be doing “the BIG clean” to get your home ready for the market, you may have noticed that your grout lines (especially where people walk most) are exceptionally grimy. There are many products out there that claim to clean them, but I know from personal experience many of these can damage the tile itself, making the tile lose its shine if the cleaner seeps away from the grout and onto the tile.
To get grout lines clean is a difficult task. In my last home, I had tile countertops, keeping those grout lines clean was nearly impossible. I fought with it for years. By the time we went to sell the home I decided to replace those countertops with granite so I didn’t have to fight the battle any longer. I wished I had known this simple cheap trick to get them clean.
I recently had a client contact me to share her great find to get those grout lines back to new.
All you need is:
A pair of gloves
A bucket of warm water.
Lysol Power Gel
**** Dupont’s Grout Sealer****
You are going to want to put on the gloves first since this is a chemical. Apply the Lysol Power Gel to the grout lines carefully, if it does get on the tile its okay but you don’t want to waste your product. Let the Lysol Power Gel sit on the grout lines for 10 to 15 minutes. You’ll see the grout lines bubble up, that’s how you know its working, getting all that years of grime out of those cracks. When the 10-15 minutes is up you’ll have your bucket of warm water ready and clean cloth rags. You just simply wipe away the Lysol Power Gel and voila!, Good as new grout lines.
Now that your grout lines are back to new you are going to need to reseal the grout. If you don’t you’re really going to have a mess on your hands. I suggest Dupont’s grout sealer, you can pick this up at any hardware store.
