How To Clean Dark Grout That Has Turned White

How To Clean Dark Grout That Has Turned White. Bathrooms and kitchens are two rooms of the house where people do not want their grouts to look dirty.

This is why dark grout is often preferred because it doesn’t showcase dirt the way lighter-colored grout can. While darker grout does make a space look better aesthetically, people sometimes forget that they still need to clean it every now and then.

Regular cleaning should be done regardless of the color of your grout. In this post, we wanted to show you how easy it can be to keep your darker-colored grout looking nice and pretty.

How to remove white grout from dark grout is discussed here.

1. Heat the cider in a small bowl and combine hydrogen peroxide with it. Then put your feet on the frame’s glue and you are good to go. If you want some more thickness though, try cutting the bottle with a spacer in between each one.

2. Spread a very small amount of glue onto the grout and spread it evenly over the area that is about three to four inches larger than a hand and about two square feet in size.

Spread out a thick enough layer so that once you touch your washcloth down, you can carefully see your fingers through the glaze and remove any excess spots with ease. You’ll want to allow the mixture to sit for five to ten minutes so that the bond forms before it makes contact with water.

3. Use a toothbrush to gently brush away the buildup with a little bit of water. Focus on cleaning some of the more grout areas if you find that they’re still dirty.

Add in a sample amount of your cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes before going back over everything with another pass and rinsing it clean.

4. Begin by adding a small towel to the pan and making sure it stays moist. Slowly pour water onto your weights and keep an eye out for spillage. Use another cloth to wipe any remaining glue off the tile grout.

Finally, keep your tiles clean by wiping them down regularly with a shower cleaner for the countertop/mirror or a disinfecting wipe/spray for the floors.


Why did my dark grout turn white?

If the grout in your tile or stone is turning white, there’s a good chance that efflorescence is to blame. Efflorescence is a pretty common occurrence, especially with newer buildings and there are usually two possible causes for this.

The first reason for this problem is when there isn’t enough water-repellent material in your grout mix and there happens to be salt present in the ground on which it’s being laid or the second reason might be because you used an un-polymerized grout product.

What cleans black grout?

One tablespoon of bleach should be added to two cups of water in a plastic spray bottle. Spray the solution next on any areas of black grout on the shower walls and elsewhere. You can use a scrubber brush to clean the area if necessary after it has sat for about 10-30 minutes.
