    Get a grout removal tool to get it out. Then put new grout in, clean up while wet, and seal.

    Dig and scrape out grout. Don't replace will always crack against wood, just caulk carefully . Try to match baseboard or tile.

    I would swap grout for silicone caulk for any job I can imagine. Grout starts with sand, which becomes dirt, and dirt dries to dust, and unsealed grout exposes walls and counters to degradation. I’ll choose the chemical-based caulk. What was the old slogan? “Better science for better living”, or something similar.
