Cleaning mildew off tumbled tile *impossible*?

Hey guys and gals.

We have a problem with our tumbled tile in the bathroom where theres just tons of mildew growth around the area that water regularly splashes/flows over when we shower. We have tried cleaning it with fantastik, tilex, soap and water, and even the SCI tumble tile powder, which we mixed with water until it's a paste, and applied to all the nooks and holes in the tile. All of those attemps have failed miserably. Can you guys think of any other way we can clean these other than removing all the affected tile and putting new ones in there? Please visit the link to see a larger picture. Thank you in advance.

Go to the grocery store, purchase the splashless style of clorox bleach. Using a spray bottle spray it onto the tiles and allow it to dwell for a few minutes. (this clorox is thicker and will stay in those nooks and crannies much longer therefore stand a better chance of longer dwell time on vertical surfaces)

Thanks a lot for the response. I tried looking on the clorox site for "splashless" style and couldnt find any. Can you direct me to where I can get this variant? Thanks again. I really hope this works
