    I love baking soda and vinegar for cleaning. I usually put a few drops of lemon or orange oil in for cutting soap scum or grease better, and it adds a fresh, clean scent. I cannot however, use anything with baking soda in a spray bottle. It never dissolves enough and clogs the tube. I just pour it on a sponge or put it in a squeeze/squirt type bottle :)

      If you warm some of the water in the microwave and then add the baking soda it will dissolve a little better than with just room temp water : )

    The solution worked well except I sponged it onto my kitchen grout, however, it took quite a bit of scrubbing with a stiff brush. Not the easy wipe-off job posted. Still in all I am pleased with the results.

    So we live in a really old building and we rent. Unfortunately the bathroom hasn’t been remodeled and the tile is all original (from like the 60’s). After two years of living with black grout, I found this and decided to try it. Despite not being 100% white (I’m being realistic…who knows how long the floor went without a good cleaning like this) I am totally pleased with the results!
