Turpentine oil is a type of paint thinner people use while painting their home or furniture. It is also used to remove paint spills after a painting job is over. However, not many people are aware that the oil of turpentine can also be used to remove many types of stains from tiles, specifically in bathrooms.

Not just tiles in bathroom and around shower and tub, but also dull, unattractive grout lines can also be cleaned with the help of turpentine oil.

In this article, we explain ways to clean different surfaces with turpentine in bathroom. Check out the following subsections –

Grout Lines

If your grout is polymer or latex, turpentine can effectively clean and shine it up. It can remove yellowish and dull accumulations on grout lines. All you have to do is to take some turpentine oil in a mug, dip an old toothbrush in it and scrub the grout gently.

Once the job is over, wash and rinse the grout immediately with hot, soapy water.

Paint Spills

Just finished painting your bathroom? It is time now to clear the messy spills. Dampen a cloth piece with turpentine and rub the paint spills over your wall and floor tiles. They will vanish right away.

Same way, you can remove nail paints and other types of oils from your tiles using turpentine. You can also clean stubborn, hard to go stains caused by dust and debris.
