What do you use as a grout cleaner? I have a very small area to clean. It is not worth buying a bottle of cleaner. Do you make your own?

I make a paste of baking soda and water, then scrub it in with a scrub brush or toothbrush.

I never found a commercial cleaner that did a better job than that anyway.

I've had good luck with bleach. I just spray a mix of bleach and water on shower walls and leave for at least 15 minutes. I also put spray paper towels with the mix, and stick them on the counter or walls overnight. If it doesn't do the trick, I'll spray the towels again and leave longer. It has always worked for me.

It also works on painted cabinet drawer (oil paint) when I spilled brown dye on it. OMG. I just couldn't get it out. Thought I'd have to repaint. Then I tried the bleach on paper towel thing. I had to do it twice, but it worked.
