Grout Renew is a specialized product designed to recolor and seal grout lines, making them look new again. It comes in various colors, including white, and is easy to apply. Grout Renew not only improves the appearance of grout but also protects it from future staining.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using Grout Renew

1. Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies:

  • Grout Renew in the color Bright White
  • Grout cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and water
  • Scrub brush or toothbrush
  • Sponge or rag
  • Small paintbrush or toothbrush for application
  • Protective gloves
  • Knee pads (optional, for comfort)

2. Clean the Grout

Start by thoroughly cleaning the grout lines. Use a grout cleaner or a homemade solution of vinegar and water. Spray the cleaner onto the grout and scrub with a brush to remove dirt, mold, and stains. Rinse the area with water and let it dry completely. Clean grout ensures better adhesion and longer-lasting results.

3. Prepare the Grout Renew

Shake the Grout Renew bottle well before use. Pour a small amount of the product onto a disposable plate or into a container. This makes it easier to dip your brush and control the amount of product used.

Dip a small paintbrush or toothbrush into the Grout Renew. Carefully apply it to the grout lines, working in small sections. Ensure that the Grout Renew fully covers the grout and penetrates any cracks or crevices. Avoid getting the product on the tiles; if this happens, wipe it off immediately with a damp sponge.

After applying Grout Renew to a section, use a damp sponge or rag to wipe away any excess product from the tiles. Be careful not to remove the product from the grout lines. This step ensures a clean, professional-looking finish.

6. Let It Dry

Allow the Grout Renew to dry according to the manufacturer's instructions, typically 24 hours. During this time, avoid walking on the tiled area or getting it wet.

7. Seal the Grout (Optional)

For added protection, consider sealing the grout after the Grout Renew has fully dried. A grout sealer will provide extra resistance to stains and moisture, keeping your grout looking white and fresh longer.

  • Work in small sections to ensure even application and easier cleanup.
  • Use knee pads for comfort if you’re working on floor tiles.
  • Ventilate the area well during application and drying to avoid inhaling fumes.


Using Grout Renew is an effective and straightforward way to restore the white, clean appearance of your grout. By following these steps, you can transform your tiled surfaces, making them look brand new. Regular maintenance and occasional touch-ups with Grout Renew will keep your grout looking pristine for years to come.
