How do I clean the grout in my tile floor?

Original grout on tile floor was a light grey color. Over time, it's become very dark. I've actually tried cleaning the grout in the entire house using a "toothbrush" and powerful acid-like cleanser. Not an optimal solution with less than stellar results.

    Baking soda and vinegar mixed or just plain Clorox. I use Clorox because it cleans it and also disinfects. Pour on the grout lines....I use a water can or spray bottle to completely soak the grout. Leave on for a little while.. maybe 15 minutes then test a small area wiping or cleaning it with a green scrubby. If it is still stubborn leave it making sure all areas stay saturated testing every so often until they come clean.
