Few people know how many uses baking powder has. One of them is cleaning joints. How to clean joints with powder? First, soak the joints gently to keep them moist. Sprinkle the baking powder along the joints so that it dissolves. Then sit comfortably in a coffee chair or clean another part of the house and the powder cleans for us. We have to wait about 30 minutes, then wash it off with a damp sponge or cloth. After this treatment we clean the entire floor including tiles. Baking powder can easily clean dirty joints from rust, stone and greasy deposits. It is worth to try it out at home.
Toothpaste or grout?
If you don’t have baking powder at home because you’ve used it in a more traditional way, try cleaning your joints with toothpaste. The downside is that unlike powder, if you put a tube of toothpaste on a fugue, you won’t get anything. You have to squeeze it on the grout and spread it with an old toothbrush. After several minutes wash it off with warm water. This method works well on light joints. Especially when our paste is whitening.
When it comes to bright fugues, it’s good to treat them with lemon juice as well. It can’t handle any dirt, but it has whitewashed the light grout and will clean it with stone tarnish, dry dirt and traces of rust. Just spread the lemon juice on the joints and wait 10 minutes. After this time, wipe the joints with a damp cloth and you’re done.
