    Regrouting your bathroom for a sparkling finish

    Published on 25 January 2019, Friday, 2:59 AM

    The bathroom and the kitchen are the most frequently used rooms in a house, so it is no surprise that dirt and grime build-up is relatively common.

    Grouting between bathroom tiles is notorious for attracting a nasty accumulation dirt, sometimes giving the whole room a dingy look.

    However, while this problem may be annoying, by taking on a simple DIY bathroom job over the weekend you can have it shining like new again.

    If your bathroom's grouting simply needs a good clean, use a toothbrush to scrub the area with a strong chemical solution - ensuring it is suitable for bathroom tiles.

    As a natural alternative, baking soda and vinegar act as effective cleaners and can prove just as good as store bought agents, and significantly cheaper.

    If the caulking in the bathroom has developed mildew and mould it may be extremely difficult to remove and you may find it easier to re-grout the area.

    Using a power grinder, with a grout removal attachment, with extreme care can speed up the lengthy process of removing old caulking.

    Once you have removed all of this, you can spread the new grout over the tiles, wiping off the excess, and finishing the job with a good clean and polish - leaving your bathroom sparkling like new!
