Are you tired of looking at your ugly grout? It's time to remove that old, nasty grout and replace it with a fresh new color. Not only will this make your bathroom look nicer, but it will also remove dirt and bacteria from the surface! In this blog post we'll talk about four easy steps on how to remove the grout in your bathroom and kitchen.
Use a toothbrush (or any other brush) to loosen up the backside of the entire area beforehand. This will make it easier to scrub away anything stuck after brushing.
The idea is to remove as much of the mortar from between tiles without damaging them so that scrubbing with soap and water will work better.
Put on some gloves before you start this step! Make sure your hands are clean in order for the next steps to be successful. You don't want any dirt or bacteria under your nails causing more problems than what's already there.
Mix up some soap with water. The ratio doesn't need to be exact - just add enough so the grout comes off easily when you scrub it. Add some hot, soapy water to remove any stubborn bits that were missed by using your brush. You can also use an old toothbrush on smaller areas or places you're not able to get too easily like around toilet fixtures and faucets.
Rinse out the bristles well before continuing onto step three because otherwise all that dirt just gets pushed into another spot in your bathroom or kitchen!
You can scrape at stubborn bits with a razor blade if necessary! Using your brush again, remove any remaining dirt or chunks that are in the way after scraping.
Sometimes there are still parts of the grout left after washing it away with water and soap which is where this comes in handy! If you don't have one already, make sure you purchase a razor blade that is specifically designed to remove grout. It should have a long, thin blade that can get into the nooks and crannies of your bathroom grouts!
Rinse everything thoroughly before moving on to step three.
- The next step is to apply a sealant on top of the scrubbed area to make sure the grout doesn't come back or stain easily. This will prevent any new stains from coming through as well as protect against future damage at the same time! There are many different types you could use such as polyurethane or silicon but for this tutorial, we're going with a neutral sealing wax which is also one of our most recommended products in general! Just be sure not to forget about these final steps if you want them done correctly.
