See how horrible my entryway floor looked? It’d been this way since we moved in two years ago. Despite my desperate attempts to scrub it clean.
Some genius sprayed kilz or something over the tile in my entryway and laundry room, and sealed in the red mud stains. I thought I’d NEVER get it clean.
That is. Until yesterday.
We’re hosting a Bible study here tonight, so I’ve been cleaning like crazy. Okay… there might be a little bit of obsessive nesting mixed in as well.
Needless to say, the stained tile was driving me nuts.
After mopping and scrubbing and nothing really making any difference, it suddenly occurred to me to try Jerry’s orange scented hand scrubber stuff. It gets oil and gunk off… I figured it might work! After checking out the back of the bottle I found that not only is it good for cleaning dirty hands, it’s also great for removing laundry stains and general household cleaning needs. Yeah, but could it clean my tile? It promised to remove soils and paint among other things, so I thought I’d put it to the test.
I squirted a small amount of the cleaner onto one tile square, and using a scrubby sponge, I scrubbed in a circular motion.
And what do you know. My tile was actually white under there.
I cleaned half of the floor to see the difference. I was so excited, I called the kids over to see. Jada was sweet and humored me by sharing in my amazement.
But seriously. Look at that!!!!
I scrubbed and scrubbed some more until each and every tile sparkled like it was brand new again.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
Oh, if you guys only knew how utterly impossible this job seemed to be!
It’s called Fast Orange, and although it isn’t all natural, it is nontoxic, biodegradable, and smells SO good.
If you have stained tile I’d highly, highly recommend giving this a try. I still have to touch up the corners, but I just can’t get over how well this cleaner worked. It’s my new favorite.
