I have brick tile in my long, long hall. The light grey grout is filthy from the dogs constantly bringing in dirt on there paws. I can't get it clean, no matter what I've tried and I don't want to reseal it till it is good and clean, and it needs to be resealed but it's now grey brown, any ideas?

    Hello, Peroxide works great, additionally its now sold with a spray top.


    Heres some other recommended cleaners.

    I have troubles with dirty paws too, Ive found it necessart to have a spray bottle and microfiber towel at the doorway for pre cleaning before entry into the house. 3-4 sprays to each paw with wiping really has helped to transfer the soil to the towel > rather than my homes floor surfaces.

    Use soft scrub and a scrub brush. The bleach in it will help.

    Lori,. Try using Soft Scrub on the grout. You can also make a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Put in on with a sponge, like you would grout. Let it sit for about 1 hour then wash down with a sponge and warm water. Aloha!
