Vinegar is a natural, effective cleanser for porcelain tile. You can clean tile floors, countertops, backsplash, and bathroom surfaces using a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar. Cleaning wood tile grout is also easy. You can use vinegar alone or a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to remove tough stains and grime from grout.
Pour vinegar along tile edges. Vinegar can effectively clean grout when applied at full strength or when diluted with water. Carefully pour vinegar along the edges of the marble tile, allowing it to soak into the grout.
Let the vinegar sit for 10 minutes. After you pour the vinegar along the wood marble tiled edges, allow the vinegar to soak into the grout. Letting the vinegar sit for 10 minutes will help loosen debris and stains.
Scrub the grout with a toothbrush. After you allow the vinegar to soak into the grout for 10 minutes, scrub the grout using small, circular motions. An old toothbrush works best, but you can also use a small cleaning brush.
Rinse with clean water. When you finish scrubbing the grout, you will want to rinse away the remaining vinegar from the wall tile and grout. You can pour clean water over the tile, or you can wipe with a clean, wet cloth.
Use vinegar and baking soda for a deeper clean. Add a small amount of vinegar to baking soda. Add just enough vinegar so that the two ingredients form a paste. Use a toothbrush to scrub the grout with the paste. Rinse with clean water when finished, making sure you remove any residue from the mixture.
