My husband dropped a bottle of hot chili oil on my kitchen floor. We wiped it up post haste but the oil darkened the grout in that area. The grout is a light color. We just moved into this new house and I found out the grout was not sealed either. Is there something I can try myself or should I have a professional come in with the steam vapor machine?

I have to admit I am kind of fussy about my floor. My husband says only I notice the grout discolorations.

Any suggestions?

One big mistake people make is to use bleach as a cleaning agent, bleach is to make things white ... which is perfect for this case. I am assuming that your kitchen floor is tiled and that bleach will not effect the colour of the tile or the type of floor you have, if you are not sure then test the floor with some bleach in a spot that no one will notice.
Get some cotton wool and soak it in bleach (wear gloves) and then place the cotton wool on the grout where the stain is. Leave it there for an hour and then check back. Wipe the area clean and see if the bleach has taken the stain away ... repeat if necessary.

Trusty - my floor is indeed a porcelain tile and the grout is not actually white - more on the dark ivory/tan look.

Do you think Oxi-Clean would work as well with the same method you have described? I have been using Oxi-Clean to scrub my floor since the hot chili spill just because . . . not sure if it actually does anything. But I have not let it soak for an hour as you susggested.

I would be a little hesitant to use straight bleach because of my color.

Thank you for answering my post! Appreciate any help!

Use an Alkaline Based Cleaner

Best to use a mild alkaline cleaner to deep clean your grout. Allow it to dwell for 10 to 15 minutes and agitate with a grout brush. You'll get much better results than using bleach.

These companies also provide thorough carpet cleaning services. As carpets are home to germs and bacteria, it is important to have a clean carpet. To maintain hygiene in the carpet, it becomes essential to get a clean carpet.

Vinegar solution with warm water up to five minutes over grout, and after that a gentle use of brush over it. The following process will make it easy to deal with grout.

Use fresh lemons with little water. Mix it well then applied onto grout .
Wait for at least 10 minutes then wipe away the floor.
I think this process can work and help you to deal with stubborn dirt over grout
Or
You can hire a professional cleaning expert who can remove dirt over grout using some tools and techniques
