The grout in my laundry room has seen better days. I've tried many different methods of scrubbing the grout but I couldn't get it clean anymore so I decided to refresh it.
Refresh Your Bathroom By Doing This One Thing
We use this room a lot. Not only as a laundry room but our dogs water and food dishes are in here and it's the entrance from our garage. When anyone uses this door, I cringe and what they must think when the see the floor.
As you can see, the grout is not white anymore and it really make the entire room look dirty.
On one of my daily trips to Lowe's :), I found this grout colorant. It's a paint for grout and exactly what I needed. It comes in a variety of colors. I chose bright white.
I began this project by taking everything out of the room then scrubbing the grout with baking soda and water. Once that was completed, I wiped everything clean with a mild soap and water.
Here is the floor once it was clean and dry. As you can see, some of the grout is sort-of white but not all of it.
I shook the grout colorant very well and then squeeze it directly onto the grout. A little goes a long way.
I used a small craft brush to paint the colorant onto the grout.
Using a wet cloth, I wiped away the excess colorant off of the title.
It's that simple. You just paint it on and wipe off the excess.
Here is the before (on the left) and the after (on the right). What a difference!
Now with the grout white again, the room looks so much cleaner and brighter and I don't have to worry about what people think.
Just an FYI - I freshened the grout in our main bathroom about 2 years ago. For the most part, the colorant wears very well and I haven't had to redo the floor yet.

I just did this throughout my house! Some idiot decided that white tile in the kitchen and bathrooms was a good idea. But it isn’t. It’s impossible to keep clean and discolored white grout is disgusting. So, I popped into HomeDepot and bought a nice camel-colored grout paint and got to work. We have brown/white/black carpeting and laminate floors in the rest of the house so the brown grout was a great option. It is somewhat tedious, but you will LOVE the upgrade!
