    Of course it depends on how dirty the grout. However, if the grout just needs some spiffing up in a few areas, Clorox puts out a tile and grout pen called Tilex that worked well for me. if it is a large area, use a combination of vinegar and baking soda and a little elbow grease with a toothbrush -- that should do the trick!

    if it's moldy, a 'tub/grout' spray works pretty well -- may need more than one application if bad -follow directions --- stuff has bad fumes

    I've tried a lot of different products and the best results are by using toilet bowl cleaner with bleach. With the easy pour spout, just follow the grout line, let it set a few minutes, scrub with a stiff brush and wipe up. You'll be surprised at the results.

    I use toilet bowl cleaner gel. Squirt it on the grout lines and wait 15-20 minutes before scrubbing off.

    I spray peroxide/water on it, then make a paste of vinegar and baking soda and apply it to the cracks. SCRUB with toothbrush then rinse. IF you need something more heavy duty bleach is my bet
