    Use a grout sealer first, unless the installer tells you that it's not needed, then clean it every time it's used

      Did you put the sealer on first before using the shower? I have a newly installed shower wall and I am not sure when to seal the grout@

    Another great product that I use is called Scrubbing Bubbles. The bubbles do the work for you. Apply as needed, but good advice is to keep a cloth handy in the shower to just wipe down the shower walls and door after each use -- keeps mold and mildew at bay!

    Hi Michelle, I use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser made for the bathroom! Just before I get out of the shower, I wipe it down! It works great! It also helps to keep the shower door open for a while to let it dry. :)

    Wipe the shower dry after use, leave the door open until completely dry. Clean once a week with Scubbing Bubbles.

    Use a cleaner with bleach or a bleach pen for quick touch ups.

    After I clean my tile, I spray furniture polish on the tile. It makes the tile look like new and helps protect the grout.

    I use toilet bowl cleaner, works very good. One suggestions is to work in small sections. Apply on the grout lines, let set for a few minutes and wipe off. If you can, avoid the blue kind but if not just don't leave it on that long. But it works well.

    72 hours after installation is kind of the minimum

    Our contractor just re-did our shower floor, grouted, sealed and now we have to wait 7 days to use the shower to make sure the sealer is fully set.

    Make a paste of baking soda and peroxide then apply it to your grout with a toothbrush. Let it sit a little and then remove with a clean cloth.

    This was one of the easiest ways I found when looking for methods to get my grout clean. I had to cover a lot of places and I didn't wanna spend a lot of times brushing up the grout. This saved me a lot of time and made my tile and grout quite clean. Hope you give it a try.
