What can I do about urine in grout?

My grout is stained with urine. How can I clean it?

Make a paste of baking soda and water and clean with a toothbrush. Let set for 30 minutes and wipe with a damp sponge. If the odor persists, repeat.

Add 1 t. baking soda to 1 cup hydrogen peroxide. Apply liberally to dry grout and scrub with a small brush. Allow to dry (not not wipe off); rinse.

Try a grout cleaner. You can get it from Home Depot and it comes in an orange bottle. Please do not use a bleach or acid to clean your grout, it weakens your grout.

First I would see or find out who is doing it and then I would give them a cleaning cloth.You will need a soft brush and gentle detergent with a little bleach in it and scrub gently. This should take the stain out of your grout and take the urine smell out of your bathroom.

Products like OxyClean are good for removing urine and rust stains. Lightly spray the product on the stain, let sit for a couple minutes and rinse with warm water.

You probably can't. Best bet is muriatic acid and a pressure washer. You will probably need to cover the grout with a colorant if staining has occurred.

You may have to hire a professional cleaner to clean this for you. You cannot use bleach or vinegar on grout because it tends to weaken the grout. If you want to do this yourself, you can go to Home Depot and buy grout cleaner and grout sealer. You will need to use the sealer after cleaning.

Treat the tile and grout with a commercial enzyme cleaner (Nature's Miracle or Kids & Pets). Let the cleaner stand until it soaks into the grout, then scrub with a toothbrush. If there are still stains, use commercial grout cleaner (e. g. Finazzle) to return the grout to its original color.
