What should I use to clean the dirty spaces inbetween my kitchen tiles?

I think it's supposed to be white. I don't know what it is- grout or caulk or something? Anyways it's dirt brown. What is a girl to do?

(I have a handheld steam cleaner with a little brush attachment but it literally takes me 20 hours to do the kitchen tiles with it, hence I haven't done it in a year)

Would bleach and a rag do better? ( With kids in the house it's hard blahhh! Can't be picking up my bebe with bleachy hands)

  • Soft scrub with bleach and a scrub brush.
    THEN when it's nice and shiny, re-seal it. You can find good stuff that goes on with a mop.

  • Tilex does the job for me. I just let it soak all day. Gel kind might work better with less mess. I think they sell the pencil applicator type, too. Mr. Clean Eraser and Soft Scrub is also good.
