Last week I spent hours upon hours cleaning and sealing the grout on half of our kitchen counter. This weekend, I'm attacking the other (larger) half of the counter. I had no idea how gross the grout really was until it was fully cleaned and sealed with two coats of colorant and sealer. I'm a little embarrassed to even post these pictures but you can't appreciate the 'after' without the 'before.'
I'd also like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to anyone who has visited my house recently. I can only imagine what you were thinking as I prepared your food on these disgusting counters. I promise, it will never get this bad again!
(Keep in mind, these are just pictures from my phone so the brown of the grout looks worse than it really is. OK, not that much worse. Sigh.)
The left is the 'before' pictures for the side of the counter I'm still working on. The right picture is the 'after' for the counter that is done. A week later and it still looks just as good! And now I'm back to scrubbing...
