Does your tile and grout look dirty no matter how many times you mop or scrub it? A lot of the time, this is the result of using certain cleaning agents that instead of cleaning your tile and grout, is harming it and only making the appearance of it dirtier.

A common mistake that many people make when cleaning tile and grout is using a soap-based cleaning agent. Soap-based cleaners leave behind a film of soap scum that attracts dirt while encouraging the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria, trapping it in the pores of the tile and grout. Additionally, sometimes a bucket full of suds can hide the color of your mop water. If your mop water is dirty, this will only absorb into the grout, causing a dirty and dark appearance of the grout lines.

So now that you know what not to use on your tile and grout, you may wonder what you should use? DSC’s Tile & Grout Cleaner, Sizzle, is the solution to achieving a tile that shines and grout lines that are restored to the original color. Sizzle is a soap-less, dynamic tile and grout cleaner that is very effective in high concentration on all hard to remove soils. This product contains a combination of grease cutters, detergents, solvents, and emulsifiers that react quickly and completely to remove all stains and soil found on tile and grout. Sizzle is environmentally safe and biodegradable, containing no toxic materials.

If you wish to restore grout lines to the original color and attain a tile that shines without leaving a film of soap scum,                                follow these directions:

  • For hard to remove stains such as grease or ink, do not dilute and use as is. Apply Sizzle by spraying or pouring solution directly on the stain. Let dwell for 4 minutes then scrub with a brush. After scrubbing, rinse.
  • For heavily soiled tile and grout, dilute Sizzle 1:1. Allow solution to dwell for 4 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing. Decrease dilution or apply full strength if necessary.
  • For lightly soiled grout or general degreasing and cleaning, mix 1 quart of Sizzle per gallon of warm water. Scrub, rinse and dry.
