New Favourite Cleaning Recipe

Now I know I said I would post my IKEA deals today, but sadly I have been super busy, fitting in end of school fun, baseball and mini-soccer,  and last minute rushes for the last day of strawberry picking! I did have a moment to address my disgusting kitchen floors though, and thanks to a "magic shower cleaner" I've been seeing all over Pinterest, my grout is finally back to its medium grey state (not brown). Sorry if these pictures are kind of gross, but I'm really excited about this!

For those of you thinking about dark grey tile because it will "mask" dirt, be warned. This tile shows every coffee dribble, dirty shoe mark, sauce drop, etc. It is particularly dirty in this case because of all the outdoor yard work;  with no sod in the backyard dirt was making its way through the backyard...
I started to clean with a grout brush and my "magic solution". Soon my sink looked like this:

And Ta da! Here is the after...

The grout almost looks better than new! If you would like to try it, here is the recipe:
Fill a bucket (or sink) with 2 inches of water
Add 1 cup vinegar
Add a tablespoon of dishsoap.
Use a grout scrub brush for best results (I got mine at home depot). What I like best about this recipe is that it does not leave a film like baking soda recipes do.
Happy cleaning!
