Why Is the Grout in My Shower Turning Black?
There can be many reasons for the grout turning black in your shower. We will tell you about the two common reasons among them.
Dirt is one of the reasons. When you wash the floors but don’t give concern to the grout joints, it collects the washed dirt and cleaning solution. And this collected dirt makes your grout black.
Another reason is mold; we know where the moisture level is high, mold increases there. When high humidity and moisture develop on the tiles grout, it becomes black.
What Do You Use to Clean a Ceramic Tile Shower?
I always prefer using natural/home remedies cleaners to clean my bathroom, kitchen, and other home parts.
I use a mixture of vinegar, lukewarm water, and dish soap to clean my ceramic tile shower.
First, I take a full bucket of hot water, pour a half cup of vinegar into it, then add a half tablespoon of dish soap. Remember, too much soap use will make your ceramic tiles look dull, so avoid using too much of it.
Before I mop, I use some hot running water to clean the debris from the last cleaning. Then mop the ceramic tile shower with the mixture solution I made. And once I am finished, I use plain water to clean the residue. I allow the ceramic tile shower to air dry if I have enough time. If not, I use a clean cloth or paper towel to clean the water spots and residue.
