Which product works the best for cleaning tile grout?

Asked by Cooldil17 (485points) November 16th, 2009

I have tried two different products and it seems hopeless, the one is a foam and it changes colors when it is “activated” and you are just supposed to wipe it off and the grout be spotless, but sadly not the case, another one was scrub and bubbles and it was also a foam, I waited 3 minutes and wiped, but nothing. Is there no product that can actually do what its supposed to do and remove that yellow stuff in between the tiles?

I use the clorox bleach pen. It’s the easiest thing I’ve found that really gets in there.

@gemiwing : YES! Totally the bleach pen. The gel-like stuff really sticks to the grout until it’s clean. It even has a scrubby thing on one end.

I was always told that nothing worked like some soapy water and a toothbrush.

Next time, get brown-ish grout. :D

‘Comet’ is abrasive and works well with ours.

We use a green ‘brillo’ pad with a handle on it and scrub.
I think a toothbrush with Comet (or similar, Ajax) would probably be good too. Toothbrushes are grand for that kind of stuff.

I have some chemical a guy sold me when I lived in Florida, it cost me a fortune, like $40 for a gallon and it is like magic for grout. Flippin’ I have no idea what chemical it is, I have moved with it twice. I have hardly any left. He sold it with no label, because it probably only costs $1 a gallon. Frustrating. The guy worked for my builder. I have no idea where he is now.

A mixture of bleach and washing powder works a treat ;-)

I recently saw a similar question and the person said bleach, but almost daily until it is gone. Applied with a toothbrush.
