    Wanted to spruce up the bathroom tiles after grout starting to go mouldy and in parts has sunk with pin holes in it. Tiling is about 15 years old.

    Tile spacing is about 3-4 mm so decided to rake out the grout down about 4-5 mm as I could get a grout rake in between
    the tiles. What a job that was !

    First off, is that deep enough ?

    Secondly, what do you guys recommend for a novice, first timer, to use to re-grout bearing in mind there is a power shower ? After reading multiple forum threads I understand pre-mixed is out of the question.

    Would prefer a smooth grout finish rather than a gritty one if possible.

    After watching multiple YouTube videos I think I've got the technique (but we'll have to wait and see :) )

    regards

    Tilemaster grout 3000. As long as there is a few mm gap, you should be fine

    Deep enough. Go for the smoother grout

    us sand paper, folded over, use edge of paper and lightly rub joints and only when the walls are dry, should clean the joints enough
