I tried one of these ideas on the badly stained grout around my toilet. Baking soda, vinegar, baking powder and lemon juice, mixed together into a thick paste. I used an old paintbrush and applied it all around the toilet. I used the brush to squish the stuff in. I let it all sit overnight, and then spent a lot of time wiping it all up. Oh dear, what a mess, and it only helped a tiny bit. I cannot afford to hire a professional grout cleaner, not on what I make cleaning!

Any other ideas I could try out??? It looks disgusting. My only other idea is to buy grout paint and put that on, but that stuff is not cheap. Could I, maybe, use a matte white acrylic paint?????

Many people have terrible memories of scrubbing the floor on their hands and knees, trying and failing to get some results

Have you tried a bleach cleaning solution and let it sit? If that doesn't work I think your idea of a grout stain would be a good alternative. My company offers both grout staining and cleaning.

Be very careful not to clean with an acid , eg vinegar , and then use a bleach. These two make chlorine gas which will kill you!

I thought of purchasing a room air purifier. The reasons for that are: I live, like many others, not far from the industrial area, in the summer there is absolutely nothing to breathe. I do not want to install an air conditioner because of its high cost and, as it seems to me, uselessness for a one-room apartment. I have read the winix air purifier reviews on the Internet, but to be honest, I don't know a thing or two about the purifiers at all. I would like to hear the opinions from users of such devices. What parameters are important and critical?

Make sure you clean and properly do a grout sealing service| Dallas Grout sealing companies,Ultra Clean.

Grout sealing is paramount to making sure your floors last and very long time. You need to get out all the stains, sometimes replace the grout entirely, then seal it up.
