The Best Way to Clean your Kitchen Backsplash

The backsplash catches precisely what it’s named after, the splashback of that secret sauce you’ve been whipping up all these years! Spraying and wiping both the backsplash and surrounding walls in the kitchen is crucial to removing years of flavour from your walls.





Tile Cleaning Products


These days, there are all sorts of backsplash designs, including ceramic or porcelain tile, natural stone, brick, or glass panelling. For ceramic or glass tile backsplashes, it’s safe to use most common household cleaners, either commercial or natural homemade. An excellent homemade solution that works wonders against unsightly stains is a mixture of equal parts double-strength cleaning vinegar and water in a spray bottle. The solution is powerful at cleaning and disinfecting even the most challenging food stains. If you have a backsplash made of natural stone, we highly recommend using cleaners specifically designed for that type of stone. Regardless of which product you choose, always test these cleaning products on a hidden spot to ensure they won’t stain or damage the surface.


The Process


You’ll want to start by focusing on the tough grease stains, usually located near the stove or sink area. Once these areas have been taken care of, you can move on to the rest of the backsplash. Spray the entire backsplash and wipe down with a paper towel or soft microfiber cloth. Refrain from using abrasive materials that may scratch or damage the surface.


Be sure to immediately and thoroughly dry the entire surface to avoid water streaks and potential mildew growth.


Grout Lines


Finally, grout lines can be the most difficult, labour-intensive, and time-consuming part of cleaning your backsplash. A simple yet effective solution for deep cleaning or general maintenance is to mix a baking soda and water paste, apply to the grout lines, let sit, then scrub with a toothbrush. Always wipe down the grout afterwards with a damp cloth to remove the paste.
