  • We have white tile in our kitchen and of course with white tile is white grout. When we bought our condo the first thing we noticed was how dirty the floor was, turns out it was just the grout. We spend a year trying to clean the grout. We used every product we could find and it still didn't clean it. Finally, I saw some grout paint at Home Depot. Our kitchen floor has never looked better. So, if all else fails, paint it!

  • Baking soda & vinegar paste will work well - let it set & work on the stain a bit, then scrub it clean. Or, you can use my preferred method - steam cleaning. It will not only clean the grout, but also sanitize it. Once you get it clean, I suggest you invest in some grout sealant to keep mold from taking hold and to make it easier to clean in the future.

  • I found that tilex does the trick well for grout.But please have fans going and windows open as it will take your breath away. If it's really stubborn and just won't come clean.Make sure you rinse well and make a paste of water and baking soda,it will loosen it and ricnse then try tilex again.I hope this helps!!!
