The grouting in my bathroom tiles is looking grey. Is the only alternative to scrape out the old and re-grout. I've heard there are some products on the market that re-whiten, but am not sure if they do the job. Has anyone used anything like this and what was it like?

I would think the grouting need to be cleaned first but I have found a 50/50 dilution of water/bleach in a spray works well.
I can't say I've ever been too impressed by the results you get with grout pens etc, Minty.
Several simple removal tools are available. You could even rent an electric one...........

Thanks for the link tezestwing I might decide to try one of those. As you say I don't need to remove all the grout, just enought for a new layer.
