Ethical Hedonist Cleaning Tip

Now that the sun has begun to shine, it is time to start thinking about your spring clean! No one wants to do it, but we all must. Everyone hates doing a certain chore, for some it is the bins and for others it is the dishes, but cleaning the bathroom is my biggest pet hate! The grouting of your bathroom tiles can turn a disgusting orange colour due to mould growing in humid conditions. This is so hard to clean and can make the nicest bathroom look dirty.

To clean this nasty mess follow these steps:

  1. Make a paste from baking soda and water.
  2. Use an old toothbrush to apply the mixture to the grout.
  3. Scrub with all your strength!

Soon your grout will be whiter than white!
