Cleaning Grout Lines

Today I decided to clean the grout lines on our kitchen floor. I have used three separate method's in the past but none of them seemed to work. Either our floor is extremely dirty, or I am not using the proper cleaning solution!

These are my tile floors (please do not judge... I really do want them clean!). 

So! In my desperate attempt to make the grout lines white again (I know... its our own fault for getting white grout), I jumped in my car and drove to Canadian Tire to buy a Clorox Bleach Pen! 

Boy did this work! I got the idea from this blog here, and thought it was brilliant! It took longer than I expected for the bleach to work, but when it did, my grout lines became sparkly white and I barely had to do any work! 

I put the bleach on the lines that needed the most work, and then when it was clean, I washed the floor with HOT water to make sure to remove any leftover bleach that was on the tile. If you have tough stains on your grout I highly recommend this method. I know cleaning with bleach is "a big no-no", but this worked for me! 

If you have other ideas to clean grout, let me know! I would also love to hear ideas that are natural as well! 


  1. I swear by the Magic Eraser! It takes a little elbow grease, but my grout is white again after I scrub with it!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing information about Redecorating a Kitchen with

  3. My wife wanted our kitchen counters and floor to be regrouted, so I was going to do just that. I learnt about NuGrout from a buddy of mine who agreed to help me with the re-grouting. Boy am I glad I asked him to help me out. The NuGrout cleaner and Pre-treat products worked wonders! It appears as if we have a brand new kitchen. We even used the products to clean our bathrooms.
