All you need is normal bathroom bleach and an old toothbrush. Grace posted the tip on Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, where she wrote, ‘Thanks to whoever suggested using neat bleach and a scrubbing brush on grout.’

‘After spending lots on many products to try to shift the water grime, a 40p bottle of bleach and brush did the trick.’ She also showed pictures of the tiles and grout beautifully clean. 

Talking to the Daily Star she said, "After using many cleaning products spending a fortune on highly rated products I couldn't remove the build-up of grime. So I decided to try with bleach and an old toothbrush as a last resort."

Grace continued, "I applied neat Aldi own brand bleach which cost me about 39p to an old toothbrush ensured all windows were open for ventilation. I scrubbed the grout between each time and rinsed all the tiles well once completed."

For such a cheap and easy trick you can’t go wrong, but as Grace says - make sure your room is well ventilated as breathing in the fumes from bleach can be very harmful, and make sure you rinse your surfaces well.
