Cleaning with Baking Soda

Baking Soda has amazing cleaning power and since it's safe enough to eat, there are no worries for kids or pets.  My latest cleaning project was the grout on my kitchen floor.  It looked like the grout was a dark color, but we turned it back to light.  The difficulty was not getting too much baking soda.  I put just a enough in the crack, sprayed it with vinegar, scrubbed with a toothbrush, and then wiped with a rag.  Sometimes I used more vinegar to wipe the tile itself to get up all the vinegar.  Not only does the rag get more dirt up, it helps you get the baking soda up.  If the baking soda is left behind, you'll see white residue and the floor will feel gritty, so wiping it up is important! The grout completely changed colors and now my floor looks great!  I didn't even realize how bad it was!
