I have just discovered how to turn my greasy yellowed dirty tile grouting into clean white grouting once again...

and the answer is, to paint it!

I tried so many things, scrubbing away, bleaching it, bicarb of soda and vinegar, but nothing changed the discoloured grouting back to white, so I thought 'sod it' and just painted the grouting with white emulsion. Easy pieasy.

Look how clean it is now!

Won't last.

Sorry to rain on your parade.

Even gloss paint doesn't last that long. (tried that too sad)

HG grout cleaner?

Dettol mould & mildew remover works wonders

TittyWhistles it has lasted two months so far, when it starts to discoloour again I'll just repaint it, easy! To me, that's a good enough solution!
