Remedies for cleaning floor joints: hydrogen peroxide, sodium bicarbonate, white vinegar… ..are some of the ingredients to make DIY mixtures that are effective against the dirt that settles on the joints in floors and tiles. The important thing is to know how to combine them.

To keep a floor clean, shiny and fragrant, it requires a lot of effort, especially the joints, that is, those small spaces that are found between one tile and another. They can, in fact, represent a nightmare for those who follow a proper house cleaning.

Floor joints are a porous white substance that, over time, turns black due to the proliferation of mold, bacteria and other microorganisms that easily grow in this environment. They then find, in the humidity of the water used for ordinary cleaning, another ally to take root.

Tiles in more sophisticated materials involve different treatments and above all require particular attention in the use of products that must not be too aggressive. There are specific detergents on the market to whiten floor joints but there are natural solutions that, unlike the products on the market, do not contain aggressive chemicals that are harmful to the environment and to health.

They are natural products readily available at home such as bicarbonate or hydrogen peroxide; they prove to be as effective as classic synthetic detergents against the elimination of those annoying stains. Let's see in detail how to clean the floor joints following our instructions.

If we use bicarbonate….

Sodium bicarbonate is one of the most used products for ecological house cleaning. Thanks to its antibacterial, cleaning and whitening action, bicarbonate is able to eliminate dirt attached to floors and tiles and neutralize the action of bacteria.

What we need

  • 100 grams of baking soda
  • 200 ml of hot water
  • 1 clean toothbrush with hard bristles

How to proceed

  1. Pour the water and baking soda into a bowl and mix the ingredients until a homogeneous mixture with a thick consistency is obtained
  2. Rub some mixture on the floor joints with the help of the toothbrush
  3. Leave for about 30 minutes
  4. With a clean, dry cloth, remove residue.

When doing this, remember to wear rubber gloves.

If we use hydrogen peroxide ...

This classic wound disinfectant is a truly effective product against mold, the accumulation of dust and other types of dirt that settle in the small spaces between the tiles.

What we need

  • 120 ml of hydrogen peroxide
  • A dispenser with a nebulizer cap
  • 1 clean toothbrush with hard bristles

How to proceed

  1. Pour the hydrogen peroxide into a dispenser and spray on all areas to be cleaned
  2. Rub with a brush to facilitate the elimination of dirt
  3. Leave for 20 minutes then rinse with water

If we use white vinegar ...

White vinegar is a very versatile product; it is undoubtedly, among the ecological alternative remedies, the one most used in household chores. Thanks to its antifungal, antibacterial and whitening action, white vinegar is able to remove mold from the walls and joints of floors and tiles. In addition, it neutralizes the smell of humidity, releasing a feeling of freshness in the environment.

What we need

  • 120 ml of white vinegar
  • 60 grams of demineralized warm water
  • 1 bottle with nebulizer cap

How to proceed

  1. Mix the white vinegar with the warm water then pour the mixture into the bottle with the nebulizer
  2. Spray the product on the joints in the floors and leave it to act for about 10 minutes
  3. Rub with a sponge or toothbrush. If the stains are too difficult to remove, apply undiluted vinegar
  4. Rinse with warm water and dry with a cloth.

If we use a whitener

If you are still not satisfied with the result, you can use a detergentbleaching. This product should not be used forto cleantile and tile joints, but strives forwhitenisrenewthe white of the joints. On the market there are bleachers of different brands (the most popular aresaratogaispattex). The bleaching Saratogait is enriched with a particular anti-mold agent that counteracts the propagation of bacteria, fungi and molds, preventing the formation of the typical black spots that form in the presence of humidity.

The joint bleachers are not suitable for renewing the joints between natural stones or in the case of terracotta floors and coverings. How much does this product cost? The Saratoga Bleach-Fugues can be bought on Amazon at a price of 11.99 euros with free shipping (the bottle is 125 ml).

If the work to be done is not very extensive, you can consider purchasing a "stick" or "pen" whitening product for joints. Rubson produces a whitening pen that is practical to use but also more expensive (7 ml can be bought with 8.57 euros).
