Placemarking and watching with interest. We have the same issue!

I used a paste of bleach and bicarb of soda. Left it on overnight (against instructions, which said half an hour but my grouting was disgusting) and showered it off - white grout again.

I have bleach and I have bicarbonate , thank you!! How much of each did you use?

3/4 cup bicarb and 1/4 cup bleach (or just 1 part bleach 3 parts bicarb). I mixed the quantities up and bollocked up so had to add a tonne of bicarb.

Thank you so much it worked a treat! Used an old toothbrush , it was barely any effort, only left it for half an hour, it even got rid of mouldy sealant thanks

There's a brilliant spray you can get from Lakeland. You just leave it on for half an hour or so, no scrubbing, then rinse. It's just called Mould Spray, or something obvious like that.

Is it HG spray? I have that but the bleach and bicarbonate did a better job, it was truly amazing!

Astonish Mould & Mildew Spray is amazing. And cheap! I think I got it in B&M for about �1. Like the Lakeland one, you just spray, leave and rinse. It does smell very strongly of bleach but gets the job done (better than the bleach and bicarb solution and less effot too, IMHO)

You can also buy grout whitening pens.

Squeezy - I tried them once, it was like painting Tippex on the grouting grin
