A good grout cleaner?

after my mini dachshund destroyed the vinyl tiles from the kitchen, we decided to change it to regular floor tiles.

the problem with this is my dog sometimes misses the wee wee pad and his piss gets over the grout and changes the color...

does anyone know of a good grout cleaner?

Bleach, hot water and a stiff brush.

I don't think you can clean dog piss out of grout.

If the grout were properly sealed, it shouldn't have stained.

At this point, you might need to dig out the grout and re-grout, seal it, and hope for the best.

Splash some Nature's Miracle on the floor first then try to clean with hot, soapy water with a little bleach tossed in.

Good luck, dude. I had a roommate's dog piss all over the tile in a house I lived in, and the charcoal colored grout was all fucked up from it. Nothing I tried got it out.
