If you have a tiled bathroom, prevent your grout from getting dirty and yellowing by scrubbing it weekly. Try this: Mix ¾ cup of chlorine bleach with 3.5 liters of water.

Wait a few minutes, then scrub and rinse. Grout is porous and very susceptible to bacterial growth. Seal the grout every six months to prevent moisture and water infiltration.

Wash your shower panels with the solution, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse and wipe with a soft, clean cloth.
