Got ugly, old grout?
If you currently have some dingy looking grout that could use a makeover, you’re in luck because today I’m sharing something that worked for me and my home. The best part? It’s totally inexpensive and produces beautiful before/after results.
You see, even after getting the grout professionally steam cleaned in our home, it still never looked clean, and that has always bothered me.
In a perfect world, I’d love to replace our flooring downstairs all together, but that’s not a very budget-friendly decision! I quickly discovered that it’s actually the dirty colored grout that bothered me the most, especially in high traffic areas.
So, instead of new tile, I found a way to refresh the grout!
After doing some research online on the subject of grout sealing, I decided to try this highly-rated product called Polyblend Grout Renew from Home Depot.
What is Polyblend Grout Renew?
It’s an all in one grout colorant and sealant that lets you easily update or change the color of cement grout joints. Polyblend Grout Renew is formulated with both stain-resistant and fade-resistant pigments, and I love that it’s also mold and mildew resistant.
They even have a huge selection of colors available to get the look and style you’re trying to achieve. I personally like the look of contrasting grout and tile, so I decided on Antique White.
Application is easy too…
To apply, follow these easy steps from the bottle:
- Clean the grout very well using a scrub brush, and let dry.
- Apply Polyblend Grout Renew with a toothbrush or small paintbrush.
- Wipe any excess that gets on the tile with a damp rag or paper towel before it dries.
- Last, let the grout dry completely.
It’s literally so simple to use, even my 12-year-old could help out. Even better, he was anxious to help so he could earn a little extra allowance money. He was so excited by the final results that he’s even inspired to maybe one day start his own business re-sealing grout! 🙌
Hip Tip: Speaking of kid’s helping around the house, here’s a way that you can make chores a little more fun.

Wow, what a difference! My flooring looks brand new! I love how crisp and clean the grout lines look now. It makes such a big improvement!
But you’re probably wondering if the color really does last? 🤔
It’s been about four months since I tested the Polyblend Grout Renew on the bathroom floor – I even waited to do the rest of the tile in the house before we gave it a good run for its money.
I’m thrilled to report back the color looks exactly the same today as it did the day I put it on! Plus, I only used about a quarter of the bottle to do the bathroom, so one bottle goes a very long way!
Fast forward a year…
Since I finished up the rest of the house, it’s been a solid year since we used this product on most of our downstairs and it still looks great today. There are a few areas of heavy traffic that are a little darker, but overall I’m very pleased with how well it’s holding up!
If you’re in need of a grout makeover like me, I’d definitely recommend this amazing product!
And although completion can be a little tedious depending on the size of space, if you have a DIY spirit and want to save money by completing the task yourself, the results are highly satisfying!
It’s also worth noting you can use Polyblend Grout Renew anywhere you happen to have tile in the home, such as on counters, floors, and bathrooms.
So awesome! 👏
