Cleaning my grout

I realize that it is hard to see the difference in the grout in these photos, but in real life...I can.  I found on pinterest a way to clean your grout, so I started in our master bedroom bath, and decided I'd do a room a week, until I had it all finished.  Well, it's taking longer than I planned, but I am getting there.  It is sort of hard work...and time consuming.  You use Clorox toilet bowl cleaner, apply...let sit 10 minutes.  Then use a bristled brush to scrub it.  Let sit another 10 minutes then mop up.  The mopping up takes quite a lot.  Like 3-4 or even 5 times to get it all cleaned up.  Let dry and then use sealer to seal it again.  Looks pretty good...even if you can't tell it much in the photos.

Grout is perhaps the toughest thing to clean on tiled floors. For that, I'd recommend a solution of oxygen bleach and warm water. Let that thing settle on the grout and it'll gradually "soften" the dirt, allowing for easier cleaning.
