Deep cleaning tile floor next to wood floor
The small tile floor in our master bathroom needs a good cleaning. The grout is white and looks dingy after many years. This floor is adjacent to our master bedroom which has new wood flooring, so I'll need to be very careful about using excess water which will flow through the grout lines into the wood.
So here's what I'm thinking of doing: Lay a large beach towel on the floor at the edge of doorway to soak up any water heading toward the wood. I'm planning to use powdered Oxyclean in water and let it soak into the really dirty spots. After a long soak, use our wet/dry Shop-Vac to pick up the water and the dirt.
Does anyone have a better idea? I see this as a half-day job on my hands and knees.
