    Will this work on grout in a shower?

      I don't think it would. There would be no way to get the baking soda to stay on a vertical surface.

      Just make a paste of the baking soda and vinegar. It should stay on vertical grout if you don't make it to loose.

    Do you wipe it off or spray with water then wipe it off?

    Does it rid of mildew and mold.
