Seeing as most of us have to do the cleaning and scrubbing ourselves, a tip from ASP on how to clean grout prompted me to start this thread. So all you "desperate housewives" out there, how DO you get it all clean? Please share your tips!!

I'll start off with ASP's Grout Cleaner: CLR (Calcium, Lime & Rust)

and will add my own precious discoveries:

Exit Mould & BAM - no better way to clean your showers & bathrooms!

I like using Ajax Professional Mould Remover for the showers and I use Shower Sparkle after every shower to keep it clean in between. Speaking of showers, cleaning them is for me the absolute worst job as far as housework is concerned :whome:

As for grouting, I have the South African grouting in my tiles, the one that doesn't need cleaning ;)B)

My "worst" is cleaning the oven.... Here in Abu Dhabi I have found a wonderful thing called SMAC and it gets greasy marks off the oven pronto. I hope its available in Oz!

gotta add my 5c to this ... our "secret" to clean grouting is to use a "transparent grouting sealer" which can be purchased at good tile outlets & applied when the grouting is done or after a thorough cleaning (those steamer thingys you see advertised via mail order co's work well) & drying then all you need is a wipe with a wet cloth but a plain tile cleaner ussually has some antiseptic qualities

"cleanone" :whome:

oh ja nearly forgot a little bit of "elbow grease" works wonders !

Eeeesh Eve I really need some help.

I left one of those silver wirey things (pot scrubbing thing) in my sink the other day and now I have little rust marks all over, how do you get rid of that or should I just get some silvo and polish the sink before we move out.

Thanks

Madam

Uuuuuuhhhhmmmm, is this a bad time for me to admit that I don't even know what grouting is, never mind noticing whether or not it is dirty :blush::blush: But, if I have it (that makes it sound like a STD :lol::lol: ), I'm pretty sure that it's the clean kind though :holy::D

Happy House Cleaning, y'all :ilikeit:

LOL Ajay, grouting is that black, slimy, crusty, caked, crumb-and-fluff filled area between the tiles :lol:
