    Then seal your grout so you don't have to do it again for years!

    What about coloured grout? Will it discolour it?

    I've done this and it really works . My whole kitchen is white tile and grout .

    This works great if on a wall or a surface that can be rinsed. I tried it on a floor and it is difficult to get all the baking soda off so it doesn't leave a film. I have dark grout.

    I did use this on white tile floor in our bathroom. Some areas were worse than others since my husband has worked in a machine shop for 30+ years. There is no way even his travel shoes did not come home with a dirty oil transfer that was BLACK in

    Where do you buy hydrogen peroxide please.

    Almost any drugstore or large discount store like Walgreen's, CVS, WalMart, Target, Fred's, etc. Usually packaged in a brown colored bottle as pictured above. Inexpensive, especially if catch on sale or with a store coupon found in store's ads like

    If your grout is not a colored grout, try diluted bleach. Try first in a less-obvious area to see if it works. without removing color. ALWAYS have lots of ventilation when using bleach and NEVER mix with anything except water.

    VERY good article and spot on! White vinegar can do wonders too. =)

    I AM THINKING OF REMOVING (UGH) MY KITCHEN TILE, BECAUSE OF
    ALWAYS HAVING UGLY GROUT. HAD I KNOWN THIS, I WOULD HAVE
    NEVER, NEVER, BOUGHT IT. I'LL TRY THESE SUGGESTIONS, BUT BEING
    ELDERLY, ITS DIFFICULT TO GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR, OR USE A BENCH.

      I wished I had known how hard it was to take care of my floor with grout. Would have never purchased ceramic tile floor!!

  • Alanpearson1963

    Thank you .

  • Mazefields

    I just use the Hydrogen Peroxide. I squirt it onto the grout and let it sit for a few minutes. To make the process a little easier I use an inexpensive battery operated toothbrush. It does a great job and saves a lot of time and scrubbing.

  • Merelyn.sale

    I will try sounds simple, hope it works for me. We bought this older home and showers need a good cleaning. Thanks

    At Dollar Tree, for $1, you can get an all purpose spray bottle cleaner containing bleach. One spray on the offending area and walk away, your done..
