    This will clean your entire bathroom. It is the only thing I use and my bathroom shines. If the mold is bad you may have to apply a few times and let sit overnight.


    Heat up 1 cup of white vinegar, mix in about 1/4 cup of Dawn Premium. Not the dollar store kind, because it is too thin. When mixed, pour into a spray bottle and fill with water. Shake. Spray down the grout and let it sit overnight. In the morning rinse. If you have stubborn stains, spray again. Use this mixture a few times a week. It will keep your grout and tiles clean. Also works wonders in the toilet bowl to keep hard water stains at bay. Oh you only have to heat the vinegar one time when you add the Dawn.

    Hi there both hydrogen peroxide and vinegar have been proven to do a better job in killing mold than bleach: https://www.uexpress.com/first-aid-for-the-ailing-house/2015/5/13/vinegar-and-peroxide-fight-mold-growth


    Once your grout is thoroughly clean I would consider putting on a grout sealant, that will make it easier to clean in the future and help fight mold as well.

    Regular old Hydrogen Peroxide. Pour or spray it on and let it do it's thing. Once the bubbling has stopped, wipe it dry and repeat.

    I've had luck with hydrogen peroxide and a toothbrush.

  • I would try a magic eraser, they're great at getting almost anything off!

    White vinegar is the best way to kill the mold spores. Then you can use hydrogen peroxide or bleach to remove staining. Make sure you wear a respirator.

  • There are several ways to get rid of mold, but most importantly, you need to address the root cause to keep it from returning. This article focuses on the bathroom, but is an overall great article that covers methods of how to remove mold, if bleach is safe to use, and how to prevent it from coming back. Hope this helps!

    If you want to completely change the color of your grout. There is a product by Mapei called Grout Refresh. You can find it in Floor and Decor and Home Depot sells a few colors, but Amazon has many colors. It is not hard to use, just time consuming. I changed the color of my 2 bathrooms grout several years ago. It has a sealer that prevents stains, and it still looks brand new.
