Grout cleaning

OK, so the grout in the upstairs bathroom is badly discolored. Even after cleaning, a lot of scrubbing, and even a steaming (both by this blogger, and professionally by Stanley Steemer grout cleaning) it looks pretty much the same... Then I spotted this, Stainsolver, "an environmentally safe oxygen bleach."

Well, although it all sounded very much like the items that you see on informercials (that work really well on television, but not so well when you buy them and try them at home), this blogger went ahead and ordered some. On receipt and after one application, it did seem to improve the grout significantly... Additionally applications surely necessary, but a nice start...

  1. oxygen bleach can work very well.. but if it doesn't quite do the job you can always try grout colorant. It will refresh the grout color and seal it at the same time.
