For those who swear by vinegar, acid solutions from Lowes etc., and bleach products, below is what Sure Clean has to say. Maybe they are just pushing their product????

•USE SURECLEAN SOLUTIONS NEUTRAL CLEANER FOR PERIODIC AND REGULAR MAINTENANCE OF YOUR TILE AND GROUT.
• Don’t use vinegar for cleaning tile. Vinegar is acidic and will damage grout and possibly bleach its color.
• Don’t use muriatic acid or other acidic cleaners. It is dangerous to people , pets and tile and grout.
• Don’t use bleach. It is acidic , corrosive and toxic and has the same effect on tile and grout as vinegar.
• Don’t use a dish detergent. This leaves a soapy residue and causes dullness.

Bleach is actually a strong base. I wouldn't use it on grout either. Vinegar will deteriorate and weaken grout over time. Lowes, Home Depot, Ace all have good products for cleaning grout. Once cleaned, use grout seater. Grout sealer can be applied pretty simply over a weekend...if you are able to sit in the floor.

Another endorsement for Wet and Forget Shower spray. Be patient and it will work well over time.

I was also skeptical about Wet and Forget Shower, especially since it’s about $20. Ace Hardware highly recommended it so I gave it a try. As said earlier, the results are not immediate but over a two week period you’ll see the difference. You only spray it once, and no scrubbing. We now use it once every 7-10 days. Not sure what’s in it but it works well!

Thanks, I went to the site and it's inexpensive enough and looks easy but I know it's going to be a very time consuming project. Wish I would have just sealed it when we first moved in but there were so many other things to do at that time.
