I’ve been working hard to clean up my remodel so I can show you, but one problem I was repeatedly plagued with was grout haze. As we discussed, I put in porcelain plank tile. The grout left a residue which dimmed the shine and color of the tile. I cleaned it once on my hands and knees with Mrs. Meyers and a scrubby sponge = still hazy. I went back over the floors with Mrs. Meyers and Swiffer a second time = better, but still hazy. Finally, I broke out the distilled white vinegar. Is there anything distilled white vinegar can’t do? A bucket of hot water + vinegar + hands & knees = finally clean floor. Sometimes, I make things too complicated. White vinegar does what other cleaners can’t. Relax. The smell dissipates quickly. Vinegar is natural, non-toxic, widely-available, and cheap. Don’t bother with expensive cleaners aimed at clearing grout haze, white vinegar and a little commitment is all you need hunny.
