A shopper transformed the grubby grout around her tiles with laundry detergent after a professional cleaner failed to do the job.

The mother, from Melbourne, used $10 OMO washing powder, a bucket of hot water and a $7 scrub brush to clean the floor at work without scrubbing heavily.

With two scoops of washing powder added to a bucket of hot water, she was able to remove the stubborn, discolored stains from the grout in just 40 minutes.

With two scoops of washing powder added to a bucket of hot water, she was able to remove the stubborn, discolored stains from the grout in just 40 minutes.

“A cleaner who has cleaned this site before literally did nothing. I didn’t have to do this, but I couldn’t help it. It’s disgusting and pretty nasty, I won’t lie. I think it hasn’t been cleaned in over 10 years,” she wrote in a Facebook group.

“Try it, it was remarkably simple. I just scrubbed it right away and it came out so fast — even I was surprised.”

To tackle the grout, she put two scoops of washing powder in a bucket of water.

“I dipped the scrub brush in the bucket and then scrubbed away. That’s simple. It came off very easily. I was so surprised,” she said.

“I’ve tried pouring a generous amount on the grout to let it soak, but then I have to get on my knees to scrub it, which isn’t ideal as I get wet knees, so I just slid back.

“That took me about 40 minutes to clean. I did mop the floor afterwards with floor cleaner to remove any OMO residue, so that it didn’t become slippery.’

The woman said she has used cleaning products specifically designed to tackle grout, but found the powder detergent method was “much easier and cheaper”.

She said the best thing about the product is that it doesn’t contain “strong fragrances like bleach.”

‘It’s wonderful stuff. It takes a little more effort compared to Jif cream cleanser, but my washing powder is non-toxic and has a wonderful scent,” she said.

After sharing the incredible floor transformation, many were amazed at the results and said they couldn’t wait to try it.

‘I’ll try tomorrow. This is a life-saving hack,” one wrote, while another added: “I’m definitely doing this with my floors. Thanks for sharing your craft, you did an excellent job.”
