The great thing about my job at QVC is that I get to see first-hand what products can do and I get to ask questions of the experts about them. This happens all the time, and on one recent occasion, when we were doing a DIY projects show, Ben Stiylianou showed me a product called Grout Shield Grout Restoration System.
For use on tiled walls and floors, this system restores the appearance of grout and seals it against future stains, enabling easy future cleaning. They say: “you can return your kitchen, bathroom or shower to its former glory with this ingenious product from Grout Shield”.
Ok, say I, I’ll give it a try, and ordered some for a floor that had some really awful-looking grout that simply could not be cleaned. The floor also had a bit of grout that had come out and so I repaired that with some white grout, and hope to colour it all the same.
Well, the finished results were very pleasing. It’s worth taking your time to clean in between areas and keep it all neat as you go along but it does achieve quite a transformation. Actually I was doing quite an extreme test as I was covering very old floor grout that was dark beige and stained, into light beige. It worked well and would work really well if you were just freshening up white grout with white colour.
A little went a long way and it made the floor look all fresh and clean again. I’m sure this will reappear on DIY Projects as soon as we get going again in the autumn, but in the meantime you can have a peek at some other fantastic DIY stuff this Thursday at 10am, when we have a DIY gift show, or check out Grout Shield on our website. And don’t just take my word for it, it’s got some great reviews as well!
