A grout cleaner is the best way to restore tile grouting to its original finish and most formulas can be used anywhere around the house. Although most formulas don’t require scrubbing, tough stains and dirt can be agitated using a toothbrush or a dedicated cleaning brush for the best possible chance of returning the grout to its original finish.
To assist you in selecting a grout cleaner, our handpicked selection lists top-performing formulas, chosen based on our first-hand experience cleaning floor and wall grout in bathrooms and kitchens. Our testing and up-to-date research further ensure the quality of our recommendations.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates Grout Cleaners
Whether we are cleaning grout in a shower cubicle or floor grouting in a kitchen, we’ve tried and tested many different formulas over the years.
The cleaners we’ve used include those from reputable brands in the UK as well as brands that aren’t as popular but specialise in grout cleaners.
Below are some before and after photos taken whilst testing the HG formula listed as the best within this article. As you can see in the second photo, the difference in colour between the cleaned top half of the grout and the bottom half is quite clear to see.
It’s important to note that after spraying the formula, we only scrubbed the grout up and down a few times to achieve these results.
As well as testing many different grout cleaners upon a range of floor and wall grouting, we also based our recommendations on hours of research and several factors. Some of the factors that we considered included the formulation, ease of use, time it takes to activate, coverage, effectiveness on all types of imperfections and value.
