Grout is used to fill up the gaps on tiles, floors, and walls, which makes it one of the hardest spots in your house to clean. Sure, you could grab a bucket of soap and water, then use a brush to clean every section of grout, but chances are you’ll just end up pulling all your hair out if you have more than one room to go through. This is because, unlike marble and wood, grout tends to absorb dirt into the surface, making it more resistant to cleaning methods used on standard surfaces. So, what do you do if you have a floor covered with filthy grout? YouTuber Jeff Patterson recently came up with an answer. It’s called "The Grout Grime Buster 3000."
You’ll need the following materials to get started:
- Soap Dispensing Palm Brush Refills: $1.99
- Hex Tap Bolt: $2.02
- Hex Nut
- Flat Washer
- 2 Split Washers (All washers and nuts total $0.80)
- Crescent Wrench
- Socket Wrench
Once you gather all the materials, carefully follow the instructions in the video to assemble your very own Grout Grime Buster 3000. You may be looking at that list and thinking that it will take a long time to build this contraption, but that’s far from the truth. Jeff creates one in under 5 minutes, so you could theoretically make yours before you start your cleaning chores, assuming you have all the materials at hand. The final result is totally worth it because it makes cleaning grout way, way easier. The best part is that the Grout Grime Buster 3000 can be used on other surfaces such as kitchen sinks and bathroom showers, which makes it even more versatile than the name implies.
