Step one to updating my outdated bathroom was cleaning the gross floor tile. I actually thought that brown was the color the grout was supposed to be. Then I wised up and realized that maybe the grout was just really, seriously dirty (duh scoops). I did a little pre-hardware-store-visit internet research and was surprised to see that there were products that claimed to restore your grout to it’s original white colors. I didn’t believe it, but decided it was worth a shot.
I picked up this bottle of Tile Guard coating for a little less that six bucks which claimed to “Make grout look new again”. I didn’t believe it but for 6 dollars who cares. It was worth a try. I don’t know how this stuff works, I’m not sure if it actually bleaches the grout or if it just covers it with white stain, but the important thing is that my dirty brown grout is now white.
The application process was easy too, it took less than 20 minutes for me to apply it to the floor, I waited 4 hours wiped it off with a damp sponge and voila! I was thrilled that my floors looked so clean. I am now constantly stopping to admire my handywork. It looks a bazillion times better now!
