Over the years, the grout in the yellow bathroom has become, well, gross.
|"Amazing Grout Cleaner" - Fail|
I ended up with this...
|After the "Amazing Grout Cleaner"|
The next thing I tried was Grout Bully. As Seen on TV! I paid $9.99 for it at Fred's. I read the directions which said basically, 1) apply to grout 2) let dry 2 minutes 3) remove excess with Grout Bully eraser 4) let dry completely.

|"Only $9.99... but, wait"|
The # 3) in the directions should be more like, uh, scrub the excess from the tile using plenty of elbow grease and rub until the "eraser" falls apart. This may not remove all the excess, so you'll need to find another eraser.
By the way... I wanted a cleaner. This product is more like shoe polish. Just covering up the ugly, dirty, gross mess was not what I was looking for.

At my wits end, my sister reminded me of the respiratory difficulty she was having a few weeks ago. She said she used "The Works" to clean her grout, but ended up not being able to breathe afterwords. I took her advice, but I made a little extra preparation before attempting it.

I scrubbed the grout starting next to the tub in the corner and worked out. After scrubbing, I used a sponge and bucket to rinse. Working in small sections kept the fumes down as well as the fans blowing. There are areas of grout missing which still appear dark, but wow... The grout is white again!
