    Hi all,

    A couple years ago had our kitchen tiled with dark tiles with a darkish grey grout, over the past few months they’ve become increasingly difficult to clean.

    The tiles are not a smooth finish, which I suppose makes them more difficult to clean, the grout looks the worse with bright white marks all over it. I’ve read up this can be caused by something called efflorescence, does this look like that in this case? Even on the tiles there are whiteish marks which are proving hard to shift.

    Tried normal cleaners with mopping / scrubbing without much luck.

    Have attached pictures of it now (after being cleaned a few hours ago!) and as it was when it was newly done!

    Any advice the best way to get looking good again would be great!

    Cheers

    You could try white vinegar if it’s limescale.
