The grout is moldy from the water and will not come clean. Also my shower tiles have chipping paint. Please help.

    Spray down heavy with Tilex. Let it sit for a few hours, occasionally spraying to keep it wet. Scrub down with a stiff brush and soft scrub. Rinse well. Once dry be sure to seal so you don't have to work so hard next time.

    You can also clean and paint your grout. We did that on a rental. Pained grout with white oil based paint 2 coats. Still looks good 5 yrs later.

    1. Pour 4 tbsp. of oxygen bleach powder into a 2-gallon bucket. Add steaming hot water and stir until the powder dissolves completely.
    2. Dip a shop towel into the oxygen bleach solution. Wipe the grout with the oxygen bleach solution until it is saturated. Use a mop if you are whitening floor grout.
    3. Let the solution soak in for 30 minutes. Scrub the grout lightly with a scrub brush. Add more of the oxygen bleach solution and let it stand for another 30 minutes.
    4. Remove the oxygen bleach solution using a shop towel or a mop. Rinse the grout with hot water and wipe dry. Spot-treat any stubborn stains with more oxygen bleach, scrub it lightly and rinse.

    Hi Gigi. My name is Cindy. I have used a product called "Oxi Clean Max Force". Do a test sample first. After that use an old toothbrush to scrub it into the grout. Let it set a half-hour. Then come back and wipe it all up with a damp cloth. I was very happy with results. Good luck Gigi.

  • Hi Gigi - This is the shower cleaner that we use to help keep grout and tiles clean and minimize the mildew - it works on kitchen grout too. I've also included a great article about mold if it's gone that far. Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly

    Try original concentrated Krud Kutter. Spray on, let set, wipe off. It will release the oil that is holding the dirt. Soory, cannot help with chipped tile.
