    Have had good results with "Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner". I have tried a lot of other methods but none worked as well. The cleaner is a gel and so if you put a bit in the corners of four tiles and then move over the grout with a toothbrush, let sit for about 15 minutes and then scrub clean. Be sure not to use any mop you"re using to clean up, on any other flooring.
  • We use a product called "sugar soap"

    I use Spray Nine, it gets dirt out of grout and anywhere else. I purchased it at Home Depot.

    Cleaning Grout with Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda, and Dish Soap

    1. Make a paste.
    2. Apply the paste with a toothbrush.
    3. Let the mixture sit on the grout for 15 minutes.
    4. Rinse the grout with warm or hot water to remove all of the solution.
    5. Use a rag to wipe the grout to remove any leftover residue or dirt.

    Mop the floor with clean water.

    Hi Nancy, You can make a thin paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Apply it to the grout and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Scrub with an old toothbrush and rinse clean. If the grout between the tiles has worn down too far, it may be a better idea to first re-grout and then seal. You can also buy grout pens to quickly “recolor” your grout and make them look new again.
