Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove mildew from your grout. An excellent paste to make that is really good and abrasive is vinegar and baking soda. Miss them together until you get a nice paste like this and use a toothbrush to apply it to the grout and really really scrub it. If you've got mildew this will loosen it up and when you think about it mildew is essentially a plant that is growing on your grout. You can see how much whiter that piece is. After you have killed or you've scrubbed the mildew from the grout you want to kill any remaining mildew that you may not be able to see to make sure it doesn't come back by spraying it with bleach water and I would say about once a month spray your grout with bleach water or even the what is it the Clorox Bleach Pens those little pens you can get and just draw in the grout and that will keep it from growing back. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that's how you remove mildew from grout.
