Squeaky-clean floors and lightened joints: the trick to clean them in a single pass

Cleaning the floor is definitely one of the most tedious and somewhat difficult household chores. Although it is easy to remove the dirt that accumulates on its surface, clearing the joints and avoiding leaving halos is another matter.

The dirt that accumulates between the joints, almost always a mix of dust, residue and mold, darkens them to the point of completely losing their original color. The result is a floor that, though new, immediately looks old.

Conventional cleaning products, the ones we normally buy to wash the floor, are certainly not suitable for lightening the joints.

Below we suggest the most effective trick to lighten black grout joints and clean the floor.

You simply need baking soda, a sponge and water.

Pour some baking soda into a container, add some water and pour on the floor. Scrub with the sponge, making a little force between the joints, then mop as you usually do.

It is not necessary to use a cleaning product. On the contrary, using a little vinegar as an alternative to floor cleaner will help disinfect surfaces and scent your home.

You will see that with this simple trick your floor joints will be as good as new.
