Default Cleaning white floor tile grout.

I had a cream floor with white grout done in my kitchen a few months ago, the grout is looking a little dirty now. I just bought a hand held steamer thinking this would sort it- it did a bit, not not as good as the advert.

What can you recommend?

I have a sealer that I can use after when it is spotless again, but I need to get it there first.

Thanks.

to be honest mate you,re wasting your time white grout will never stay clean on a floor sealer or not .
i always talk my customers out of light coloured grouts on floors it just dont last
i would consider re grouting in somthing darker

Mark, sorry but only a crazy fool has white grout on the floor, especially in a kitchen.
Light grey is the lightest we would ever do, normally dark grey or even athracite.
So agree with daza, seriously the best long term bet would be to regrout in a dark colour.

Dark grout with a off white/cream, tile? Not sure that would look right? Or would it?

It look fine. Would you like to see a piccy of my kitchen floor, light creamy tiles grey grout.

The real issue is that in a kitchen environment, the grout will always darken with time, so by starting with a dark grout, you effectively hide the darkening.
