Sometimes, a household item can be surprisingly useful for things other than what it’s meant for, which means you don’t always need to spend a fortune on cleaning products. The humble can of white shaving is a fantastic cleaner and is so cheap if you stick to buying supermarket own branded logo.
So not only can you shave your legs or your face but clean your house too.
Make sure you keep a can in your cleaning caddy!
White tile grout
Typical grout needs to be cleaned every four to six months due to the built up dirt and bacteria that sits in grout lines and can potentially make the rest of the floor look dirty. Squirt the foam into the grout lines and then either using a recycled tooth brush or small grout cleaning brush and scrub in. Leave a few minutes and then wipe clean with a microfibre cloth.
It really is as simple as that and the good thing about using shaving foam is that it is perfectly safe for children and pets.
