Clean Grout in Your Bathroom

No matter how clean your toilet, shower or sink are, if the grout between your tiles looks dingy, your entire bathroom will feel dirty. But there's only so much elbow grease can do to refresh this white filler to its previous glory — which is where the advice from Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, comes into play. First of all, stock up on these essentials.

What You'll Need:

rubber gloves ($10,
eye protection ($5,
stiff brush ($6,
household chlorine bleach ($11,
CLR Fresh Scent Bath and Kitchen Cleaner ($15,
Now you're ready for the fun part ...

How to Clean Grout
Every week, or as needed, mix 3/4 cup household chlorine bleach with 1 gallon water. Wearing rubber gloves and eye protection, use a stiff brush to apply the formula to one small area at a time. Be careful not to let the liquid spatter onto surrounding surfaces. Let it sit for several minutes, then scrub and rinse. Or try CLR Fresh Scent Bath and Kitchen Cleaner ($15,, which is Forte's go-to product. Just spray the solution onto the tile and wipe clean.

How to Maintain
To prevent dingy shower grout in the future, run a squeegee on the tile after you're done bathing. Moisture can lead to mildew stains, so the drier you keep your bathroom, the less you'll have to clean it. Opening a window, turning on the exhaust fan while showering and leaving the door open will also help it dissipate. And don't forget to stretch the shower curtain open either. "A couple extra minutes of work can really minimize cleaning time in the long-run," says Forte.

Now that your grout is clean again, try these tips to help keep your bathroom clean for longer.
