Greasy residue is often a problem in kitchen areas, and the grease quickly collects and absorbs into grouted areas. To get rid of the greasy build-up, you want a cleaning ingredient that pulls out and removes that grease without discolouring the grout. Bleach-based and other chemically-based cleaners can damage and discolour your grout, making it important, instead, to use a more mild cleaning solution that is effective in removing the grease.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Dish soap

  1. 1

    Fill the grout line with a coat of dish soap.

  2. 2

    Rinse a toothbrush or nylon cleaning brush under tap water to wet the brush, and scrub over the grout.

  3. 3

    Continue until all greasy residue is removed from the grout.

  4. 4

    Run a cleaning rag under water and wring it out a bit. Wipe the rag over the area of grout to remove any soapy residue.

  5. 5

    Let the tile air dry.

  6. 6

    Repeat if any grease build-up remains on the grout.
