Our home could use some bathroom refreshes, but until then, I’m trying to at least clean them up. I used a grout stain in the kids bathroom and it made such a huge difference. But beware, it was a painstaking process. It took a long time and patience, but for a few dollars, it was highly worth it.
You apply the grout stain in the lines of the grout and I used a toothbrush to rub it in. Then you need to let it sit about 15 min before rubbing off the small areas that get onto the actual tile. I used a small cloth and the pressure from my finger to gently remove the excess colorant off the tile. Lots of scrubbing here. I ended up applying 2 coats to the bathroom because I could still see some streaks in the colorant after one application.
I worked at this project over a week probably. I’d work for awhile and when I’d had enough I’d leave the rest for another day.
I found the product at Menards in the tile area. There are lots of different colors to pick from.
Our master bath also needs to be worked on. I just ordered a cleaner off of Amazon that I’m going to try in there. Our bathroom is much larger than the kids’ bath and I’m really hoping it works and would be faster.
