How to Clean Stains from Popsicles Out of Grout 

It’s summertime, which means many of us turn to cold treats like ice cream, drinks, and popsicles to cool down. Unfortunately, popsicles easily drip and their bright colors (pink, blue, green, etc.) can absorb into grout and stain it. As adults, it’s easy for us to avoid spilling a popsicle anywhere, but children tend to make a mess, and there could be drip marks all over your floor.  

Popsicle drippings aren’t so hard to clean up and wipe off tiles, but they can be hard to clean out of grout because it absorbs into the grout lines. 

Since grout is porous and often light-colored, it will easily absorb the bright colorof the popsicle and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, you can clean up the popsicle and it will look like the spill never happened. Remember, you want to clean up spills immediately, so the stain is easier to clean up. 

Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of popsicle stains in grout for good. You’ll never know it was there! Popsicle stains (or any stain) in your grout can make your home and grout look old and dirty, even if you clean it regularly. It’s not so easy to hide blue or orange spots in your grout lines! 

Along with getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield products also rid the grout of bacteria and other harmful germs that get absorbed into the grout lines over time. 

Most home-cleaning products, advertisements, and articles may tell you to clean up the stains in grout with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these chemicals and products may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout, and many of these chemicals can harm the grout and cause it to crack or break. 

To remove popsicle stains, 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. Then, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The hot sauce stain will be gone. 

Now, if the popsicle 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 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. You can choose any color in the world to recolor your grout, whether you want to match the color of your existing grout or recolor the entire room. Check out our grout colors. 

If you don’t need to recolor your grout, you should seal it with a clear grout sealer after cleaning it, to protect it from future spills and accidents. Next time popsicle drips into your grout, the sealer will prevent the bright colors from seeping into the grout lines, and you can clean up the spots with no stains left behind. 

Our grout cleaners and sealers are simple to use and apply. The popsicle stains will be gone! Your home will look clean and refreshed, and you and your children can enjoy a nice cold popsicle without worrying about staining your grout ever again!
