How to clean urine stains on grout by toilet

Need a solution for this for a client. Badly stained grout by the toilet.
DIY solution preferred although I will have him buy a product if necessary.
The floor next to it is linoleum and I want to be careful not to damage that.

As long as we're at it, does anyone have a real solution for mildew that has gotten into shower grout? The stuff that Clorox doesn't get to?
Thank you

These are good questions and I hope someone has some decent answers for you. Grout is sometimes hard to clean! It helps if you use a very strong toothbrush or any stiff-bristled brush. Libmans makes some really good ones.

I have 2 Dry Vapor Steam Cleaners. Life without them scares me lol.
Cleaning time reduced, chemical use reduced...
The way we use these in restroom / bathrooms is to steam around all the cracks and crevices. (faucets, toilets, hand blowers, handles, drains, etc...)
Then we finish using traditional methods with micro-fibers and simple green.
The result is a faster deeper clean.

We use these to deep clean hard to reach areas in every room!
I'm not a sales rep or an affiliate with retailer, just a very happy end-user.

Continued from my previous post.
Our dry vapor steam cleaners clean grout fast without chemicals.
In situations like yours, stained or moldy grout lines I up sell a Grout Color Sealer.
The color seal is easy to apply and is permanent. It is made to order in any color the client wants and it seals grout to prevent future staining. Color sealed grout is much easier to mop too, since the pores are sealed and the dirty water doesn't hang up in the grout.

lemons are the good cleansing agents. lemon juice can be used for regular cleaning..otherwise many cleansing liquids are available in market.

Okay, but eloms or lemon juice is NOT cheap, even here in Florida where they grow.

have u tried to tell the customer to stay in a hotel for 2 days and gas the bathroom with something like Chlorine Dioxide?

the bathroom would need to be sealed up and you can use the regular tablets part a is an acid part b is sodium chlorite

these can be tricky to get ahold of - probably find your nearest cleaning suppliers

Oh Holy Cow! This sounds extreme to me and possibly dangerous! Definitly NOT something just anyone should do. Your safety must ALWAYS come first.

Tiles & Grout are best left to a pro, many things that could go wrong and cause permanent damage.
