Tile Scrub – Day 27 – 31 Days of DIY Cleaners


If you need to get your grout and tiles sparkling, you’ll love this simple solution. Big impact, but without all the stuff you don’t want! The combination of products is powerful and effective!

  • 1/4 cup dish soap
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 2 tbsp hydrogen peroxide (just enough to form a paste)
  • 10 drops essential oil

Mix this up in a bowl as you need it (it doesn’t store well). Sponge it on to grimy, stained areas and rub it in. For stained grout, use a small cleaning toothbrush to get into those tough spots. Allow it to sit for a few moments and scrub off and then rinse well.

  1. Do you answer question that have been asked?Just curious don’t want to waist my time typing a question that won’t be seen or answered.

    • Hi there! We get a lot of comments but we try to answer questions or refer you to another helpful blog or article if we can.

  2. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe.Worked beautifully on tile in my mom’s bathroom that had old grout smeared on the tile and aged as well as tiles that yellowed over the years. They look nice and sparkling clean!

  3. I really wanted to like this solution as a way to clean my shower tiles but each time I made (and yes I’ve even looked at her update recipe which is just equal parts baking soda and dish soap) the results were not great. I was often left with a paste mess to deal with. I suggest trying her Soap scum buster spray which I can say does work very well.

    • So I tried this recipe again and it honestly does work. The difference? I followed Melissa’s technique that she shows in her other tutorial videos and then I also didn’t apply that much product when I was cleaning (which I think I over did on the first time). I only did this on the back part of my tub to test it and the difference is night and day. Then back of the tub feels so smooth and got rid of that soap scum! I will definitely use this in conjunction with her spray. Tip: don’t apply too much product and watch her other videos on how to scrub it in!
