Whether you’re hosting a party or event, having a drink with dinner or own a restaurant or bar, there’s a good chance someone at some point will spill their alcoholic beverage. Although many alcoholic beverages are clear, many are dark colored or become dark when mixed with juice or other types of drinks. Unfortunately, alcohol can easily stain lots of things in a home or business, including grout.
Alcohol can be hard to get out of grout lines, because alcohol will quickly absorb into the grout lines due to grout being porous. After spilling an alcoholic beverage into grout lines, you may see a discoloration left behind, whether it’s red or brown, which is likely NOT the color of your grout.
Since grout is porous and usually light-colored, it will easily absorb the dark color of the alcohol and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and grout sealing products, you can clean up the drink and it will look like the stain was never there. Remember, if someone spills a drink, you want to clean it up fast, so it takes less time to stain and clean.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of drink stains in grout, whether new or old. An alcoholic drink stain in your grout can make your home or business look old and dirty, even if you clean it regularly.
Besides getting rid of the drink discoloration, Grout Shield grout cleaning products also rid the grout of any bacteria and other harmful germs that could be absorbed into the grout lines over time, which you don’t want. These germs can get you or guests sick.
Most home-cleaning products like bleach, ammonia or white vinegar may get rid of the grout stain (eventually), but they really are not cleaning the grout. They also will take you a long time of scrubbing to remove the stain (if at all). Many chemicals in ordinary household cleaners are harsh on the grout and can actually cause the grout to crack or break. Grout Shield’s grout products are safe and pH-balanced.
To remove alcohol stains, you want to first blot the area dry with a clean cloth. Wipe the area clean of the alcohol. To remove the drink stain, you will want to use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner, which cleans and lifts deep and hard-to-clean stains out of the grout’s pores.
To use this grout cleaner, mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, brush the cleaner into the grout with a brush applicator. Let the mixture sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. Wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The drink stain will be gone.
Now, if the stain still won’t fully disappear, you can make the grout color look like new again with Grout Shield’s color sealer. You just squeeze the color sealer into the grout lines. Then, spread it into the grout lines with a brush applicator or your finger and wipe away the excess with a towel or chamois. This newly applied color will cover the alcohol discoloration. We can match and make any color you want for your grout lines. Check out all our grout colors. A new grout color can transform the look of a room or space.
Always seal your grout. If you don’t need to recolor your grout, seal your grout with a clear grout sealer after cleaning it. Next time any drink lands on your grout, the grout sealer will prevent the drink from seeping into the grout lines. You will be able to easily wipe the drink right up with no stain left behind.
