Mum gets floors sparkling with homemade cleaner that cost just a few pounds

It’s a great feeling when you find a cleaner that does what you want to get your home sparkling, but that satisfaction is even greater when you’ve made the cleaner yourself.

TikToker Mama Mila shared her recipe recently for a homemade grout cleaner that transformed her floors, and people are going crazy for it.

Of course, you shouldn’t normally go mixing household cleaners as the results can vary (and sometimes be dangerous) but Mila has researched and found a mixture that’s both safe and effective.

In a video that’s now been watched over 62,000 times, Mila shared her top tip.

Mixing together half a cup of baking soda with a third of a cup of hydrogen peroxide, Mila applied to her tiled floors and left to settle for around ten minutes.

She then used a hard brush to scrub the grout and finished up by using a damp mop to get rid of the excess.

Although her floor was clean before, the homemade cleaner took the grout up a level – to the point it looked like freshly-laid tile.

The acidic hydrogen peroxide mixed with the baking soda will create a small-scale chemical reaction that bubbles and lifts dirt, and can be used for various items (from ovens to white fabrics).

You do need to be careful in that you must never store this mix in a container after using. The carbon dioxide created will expand and could cause an explosion or spray when opened, so it’s safer and easier to only make as much as you need for one specific cleaning project.

You can buy hydrogen peroxide from most pharmacies for a few pounds, and baking soda should cost you less than £1 from a grocery store.

In Mama Mila’s case, the whole thing cost her less than $5 AUD, which is a small price to pay for a floor that clean.
