Grout Pen In Cleaning Grout: Four Simple Measures

grout penGrout pens assist in restoring your grout to its original colour. Each grout pen covers an average of 80-160 linear feet of tile grout. For two coats with 3-inch tiles, you would require eight linear feet of coverage for each square foot. For example, a 10 ft by 4 ft bathroom (40 ft of tile) needs about 320 ft of linear content. It would require about 2-4 grout pens for the initial application, regardless of whether you are making one or two applications.
If you are fed up with cleaning your tile and still have it look unsuitable, you could use the help of a grout pen or grouting pens. Many use reliable grout cleaners to complete the job successfully and efficiently. These also allow you to apply it to the exact spots that require the most cleaning. The measures below will help you have the utmost success on your mission.

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Cardboard or some loose sheets of paper
  • Dry towel
  • Grout cleaner
  • Cleaner Brush or tool
  • Grout pen (to get the best choice, please scroll to the bottom part of this page)

Grout Pen / Directions:

  1. Initially, it would be best to use a grout cleaner to help you clean the tile and grout surface before beginning. Scrub the dirt off the tile and use a scrub brush or toothbrush to clean the grout thoroughly. Ensure that you clean the grout well and remove any loose material. Before cleaning, you will want to dry the tile and grout thoroughly.
  2. Then, shake the grout cleaner before opening it and try out the grouting pen on a loose sheet of paper. Testing how hard you need to push and attain the best results is advisable. Another technique is to start with the colour, where mistakes could be more viable.
  3. Next, slowly apply to the tile and grout. Please put it on evenly and do not get in on the tile. To get the best results, you want to go slowly. Ensure you clean it up quickly with a damp cloth if you spill. Let it dry for one to two hours.
  4. You must also apply a second coat for the best outcomes. Remember to shake well before using. The second coat should help your first coat appear complete. After finishing, allow the grout to dry for 4 to 5 hours before assuming normal use levels again.
