How to clean grout between tiles

Dirty grout lines can really spoil the overall look of a tiled floor or wall.  You may think that some bleach and a toothbrush will do the trick, but this can cause other problems. Bleach can dull polished tiles, erode natural stone, damage tile sealant and turn the grout yellow, so try a Fila solution instead.


If your tiles are ceramic, use FUGANET, which is a special spray cleaner for grout joints:

  • Spray onto the grout
  • Leave it to act for a few minutes
  • Scrub the grout line with a sponge – or your old toothbrush
  • Rinse

If the grout is really dirty, clean with Fila DETERDEK first, using a 1:10 dilution.

When the grout is clean, remember to protect it with FUGAPROOF water-based grout protector that prevents absorption of stains and makes dirt removal easier.
