    Smile HELP!! I want to change colour of existing grout

    Hi, I have white ceramic kitchen floor tiles, which I put white grout in 18months ago, this grout has become stained,dirty, and will not clean, I have tried allsorts, so I thought I would change the grout to Grey, will I have to remove the white grout or can i put the grey on top of the white, there is quite a deep ridge between the tiles, the grout is not flush with the tiles. A x x

    You really would need to remove as much grout as you can from the joints, how big is the floor? and what area are you from as somebody on this forum could possibly remove grout for you.

    Aquamix do a grout re-colourant which is available in a variety of colours which would do the job as long as the grout is not cracked.

    Its actually probably one of the best tools i have ever bought. Shame the blades are so expensive to replace, so take care of the saw blades.
