Hi,

We just had our kitchen updated, and we have a new glass tile backsplash with white grout.

Despite wiping it often, it is already becoming discolored near my sink (I imagine from dishwashing debris splashing on it).

I bought Barkeeper's Friend and just tried it but it didn't work. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning grout?

This may not be the recommended method but works for me! I use a spray bottle with a mixture of bleach and water. I then scrub with a toothbrush. Was your grout sealed? Sealing will help protect the grout from permanent staining.

Get a handheld steamer...works the best.

Hi IcingImages,

Sorry OP, am I HighJacking?

Thanks for the additional info.
Will have to give these a try.
The handheld steamer does look very useful on the infomercial.
How do you like it?

I absolutely love it! But there are handheld ones that we use for cleaning our printheads because it has a narrow beak and it goes right in to those grout lines wonderfully!
