Cleaning Grout

What can I use to clean white bathroom tile? I have 3 bathrooms with white tile and it is very tiresome trying to keep the white caulk between each square tile clean. I have been using a toothbrush to scrub it, but I thought you had a better idea. Please help.

I know this will sound strange, but my granddaughter sent me 100 ways to use Coke. Cleaning grout was one of them. Just pour a can of Coca Cola on the floor or the counter and wipe it up. Must use the name brand.

Hope this will help.

I have an amazing new cleaner that got my grout white! It's called ZEP Grout Cleaner. It's only sold at Home Depot. I bought a 14yr old house that came with white tiles, and what was supposed to be white grout. I poured some on and used an old brush that's used to clean bird cages. And voila, I have amazing white grout. I'd tried absolutely everything to get this floor clean, and this was the one thing that worked!

Maybe your grout is dirtier than mine, but I just apply some Soft Scrub with a cloth making sure it's covering all the grout. Then I have a glass of tea while it works. I go back after about a half hour and use a stiff brush to scrub. It doesn't take much scrubbing, mostly just a couple or three swipes over each part and it's clean.

I just used hydrogen peroxide on my grout, and it worked. Just put it on, let it sit for a while, scrub it with a small brush (I used a small brush used for your nails) and wiped dry. I was amazed, as it took off lots of grime left by a previous owner of our condo.

I have successfully used vinegar on grout. Pour white vinegar directly onto the grout and let sit a few minutes, then use a scrub brush or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Wipe away excess with a towel. I have found that it's best to clean a small area at a time.

Don't clean it. Paint it. Go to the hardware store in the tub and tile section. They have paint in a bottle that has a roller on it. I think it worked great. And it stayed on a long time.

I have the same problem in my shower and all of the advice that I have found on this site doesn't work. I buy every new tub cleaner that I hear about and nothing has worked.

There is a grout paint at Home Depot or Lowe's that you apply to a small area with an old toothbrush, then wipe over it with a dry cloth to remove the paint from the tile. I did the grout on my bathroom floor with it about a year ago, and it has stayed clean ever since.

Thank you Thank you Thank you for the baking soda and peroxide suggestion. I tried cleaning a small 1 meter area of my floor yesterday with straight bleach and comet. It worked ok but it took 2 hours, my neck, back, and knees hurt. I thought I was going to die from the fumes. I couldn't imagine doing my whole house this way so I found your suggestion and gave it a try. Amazing! I can't thank you enough!

Editor's Note: Be careful not to mix different cleaners together, especially ones containing bleach or ammonia. Many chemicals can combine to create toxic fumes or substances.
