    Default Tile Grout

    I am jumping in here. This is one of the most inexpensive things you can do
    to give a kitchen or bathroom a face lift. Go to Home Depot or other
    building supply store, there is a cheap little tool you can buy to gently
    scrape out the grout lines (you do not need to go all the way down). You
    only scrap the surface. Then apply a layer of new grout. Let dry and clean
    up the dullness. The next step is very important. They make a grout sealer
    that dries clear. Apply this. It may seem a little pricey for the extremely
    budget minded, but will preserve you grout and tile from stains and prevents
    any moisture from getting into the little crevices. This will prevent damage
    from molding as well. We do all of our own tile work and grouting, we just
    changed the sink out in our bathroom, this is our 4th house to work in. Feel
    free to email me with your questions.

    I am currently in the process of regrouting a bathtub...

    Don't make the mistake I did.

    Everything was going well, with scraping out the old grout (as
    blairrl520 wrote, you don't need to scrape it all out, just a little
    bit). But then, when I applied the new grout, I (apparently) didn't
    apply it correctly... I am now--2 months later--still scraping off
    the excess grouting material from my tile, trying very hard (and only
    sometimes succeeding) not to scratch it. My knuckles are bloody, and
    I can't imagine how or when I am going to finish this job... What a
    mess!
