- Take that paste and apply it to an old tooth brush then scrub, scrub, scrub.
- Mix together vinegar and water and put on the grout.
- Let it sit for an hour
- Come back and scrub again – then rinse!

Lemon Juice and Borax – Another option for grout that is a bit more built up than others is to try borax and lemon juice. Follow the same steps as above but instead of vinegar just use warm water! Make sure to let the solution sit for you about an hour to get the best results. And if you really want to get your wall tile grout extra clean – do both of the options! In this order start with the baking soda, then move to the borax. You will be sure to have shining grout before you know it!
