Tile grout should be cleaned whenever it becomes dirty or discoloured with mould and mildew – the frequency will depend on where your tile is located and how often the surface is used. Tiled walls may require cleaning just occasionally, while frequently-used tiled shower walls that are subject to lots of moisture and constantly humid conditions might require weekly cleaning. 

Fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch have taken to Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips page on Facebook to share their advice on cleaning tile grout after one woman asked for cleaning suggestions.

Helen Atherley wrote: “Hi, need advice please and please be kind. I have been cleaning a family member’s house all week. The worst part is the shower cubicle.

“Just can’t get the grout clean between the tiles and the shower door clean. Any recommendations on what to use please.”

The post was inundated with over 230 comments. Of all the suggestions, one kept appearing time and time again – to use Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster.

Claire Bateman said: “Astonish mould and mildew, just spray on and leave overnight. No scrubbing needed.”

Sam Bollard commented: “Astonish mould and mildew. Spray it on and leave. It’ll be gone in five minutes. It’s essential for removing the most stubborn of grout stains.”

Sharran Green wrote: “I bought Astonish’s mould spray in a green bottle. First time I have ever used anything like that and it was amazing. I just left it for five minutes and then washed it off.”

Jean Paige replied: “Astonish mould and mildew is remover brilliant. All you have to do is spray and leave. The grout will be clean in minutes.”

Paula Dean advised: “Use Astonish mould and mildew spray, amazing for the tiles and grout and so much better than bleach. Spray on, leave for a few minutes and all dirt will be gone.”

Lisa Morris suggested: “Maybe try Astonish. I’m a new convert and think this is brilliant. Spray on, leave awhile and wipe off, hope it works.”

Posting a Picture of Astonish Mould and Mildew Blaster, Linda Moore said: “Try this, it’s brilliant. They sell it in Wilko for 99p.”

As well as picking up the Astonish Mould & Mildew Blaster spray from Wilko, the mould remover is also sold at Asda for 99p and at Morrisons for £1.25. 

According to Astonish’s website, the product can be used for grout. They said: “Use Astonish Mould and Mildew to not only remove Mould but to whiten dulling and stained grout too. The product that just keeps giving!.”

Their experts said: “Our Mould & Mildew blasts away tough stains and effectively removes mould and mildew stains in minutes. 

“For a long-lasting cleaning solution, use regularly to help prevent the return of mould. Ideal for use on walls, uPVC window frames, glass, plastic shower curtains, bathroom tiles, grout, silicone sealant, concrete, sinks and plugholes.”

For those after a natural cleaning method, Mrs Hinch fans suggested pairing baking soda with white vinegar.

Helen Thompson said: “Try bicarbonate of soda and vinegar, put in a spray bottle, spray it on, leave it for about half an hour, then clean off.”

Chris Koehn wrote: “If you don’t want toxic fumes, use a paste of baking powder and vinegar.”

Fanny Ospina added: “Baking soda and vinegar, leave it for 10 minutes and scrub with a brush.”
