Can anyone please advise if you can whiten grout around tiles?

Hi all,
Our kitchen tiles were done about 6 years ago, they are quite small so lots of grout.
They look quite grubby now and I also want to reprint the kitchen to freshen it up, so was wondering if there's a way to re-whiten them or what I can do to make them look better.

Thanks in advance

Try something like this:

You can get similar ones in Wickes, B&Q etc too.

I use this stuff, which I'm sure is mostly bleach, but it works extremely well for me:

HG Mould Spray

This works pretty well

B&q and homebase also sell them but much dearer roughly double the price

Thanks for the speedy reply guys - the Lakeland one doesn't have great reviews and I don't have a store near me to collect from so I am going to leave that one.

I am going to try the one from B&Q, they also have a grout cleaner so am not sure which one to go for now - am also gonna give the limescale remover a go on my taps and that :)

Depending how that goes on the grout, I will then buy the one from Amazon if it still needs it which seems to be more like a paint than a cleaner :)

Thanks Tracey, i have a screw fix round the corner, I assume this is also like a paint? So I will try the cleaner format and see how it goes - I don't have mould or anything the grout just isn't as white any more :)

My tip would be in future not to use white grout as it discolours the most.

Yeah that's true but it does look the nicest - whilst it's white :D

Just try "ASTONISH MOULD SPRAY" From B&M or any local store for a pound (750 ml).

I have mould around my bath.

Any ideas unless I rip the thing off

This sounds great.
Might be useful for my bedroom corner

Be careful with mold spray I used it to remove some mold on painted wallpaper and ended up taking paint off.

Milton sterilising fluid is good, I used that on grout and around the bath.

Depends on your commitment and costing

If it was me I'd spend the time removing all the existing grout and replacing it

Yes some whiteners/bleach products will do a quick job fairly well but will not last as long as doing the job correctly

A temporary fix used a few times looks good at first

Try lemon juice and bicarb of soda. Works a treat on cleaning grout. Test a small patch first.
