A woman has made her tiled floor look like new by removing all the dirt caught in the grout in minutes – using toilet cleaner.
American actress Savannah Meyer posted a video on TikTok of her grubby floor before she cleaned it.
The tiles themselves were clean but the grout between them was dark and grimy.
Savannah, 28, from Utah, showed how she poured a drop of toilet bowl cleaner onto the tiles before leaving it to soak and scrubbing with a brush.
She said: ‘So I saw this hack where if you put toilet bowl cleaner on your tile grout, it’s supposed to clean it really well.
‘I just bought a new house, so I thought “what the hell, I’ll give it a go in my kitchen”.
Should I do my whole kitchen?? #fypシ #clean #satisfying #ScienceAtHome #lifehack
‘I let it soak for five to 10 minutes and then gave it a good scrub. It’s disgusting.’
When she went back to it, the dark discolouration quickly lifted.
She’s only done a small patch but asked people on TikTok if she should do the whole kitchen and they encouraged her after seeing the results.
One said: ‘Wow what a difference. I desperately need to do this in my kitchen but there are way too many tiles.’
Another said: ‘I just tried this and it worked! Have never done it before, good for a deep clean.’
Some were worried about the cleaner eroding the tiles but Savannah explained that she was doing it because it is a new house and the grout hadn’t been kept clean. She said she wouldn’t do this regularly but rather use it to remove the build-up and then maintain it with something gentler.
Of course toilet bowl cleaners can be quite dangerous and can cause burns so it’s important to take precautions to protect your skin if you plan to use it on your floor.
