The grout in our kitchen floor has been irking me for the longest time! Every time I walk on that floor that is all I would notice. We tried a couple different methods but none so far have worked. Our first attempt was the Clorox Bleach Pen. It did nothing. I was disappointed because all the reviews said this would work. Not even close. I kept searching and found this website which mentioned Powdered Oxygen Bleach. I never even heard of this product before. I watched the video they had and became hopeful. It seemed easy enough to try out and cheap! So our next grocery trip we purchased the $0.88 powdered bleach. I wanted to start this right away and see if it would work!

All I needed was a bucket of hot water, about a 1/2 cup of the powdered bleach and a scrub brush. I mixed the water and powder together and then poured the mixture onto the floor. I let it sit a good half hour. Then I got on my knees and started scrubbing away with the brush! Definitely use rubber gloves for this project. I thoroughly scrubbed the grout and could start to see the dirt fade away.
After I finished the tiles I took a wet towel and wiped the tile. I could not believe it, it worked! I was thrilled….my grout was sparkling white! I then used my Swiffer mop to make sure all the bleach was cleaned up. This is the way to get rid of grout!
After: White as a cloud!
