Grout Bully claims to be able to clean and brighten the dirty grout in your life, but does this As Seen On TV product deliver?
Having seen plenty of poor packaging in my day, I always appreciate when a product is well marketed. That being said, my initial reaction was that this product just LOOKED cool. It came with an applicator, two sponges, and directions. To test if Grout Bully REALLY could hold its claim of being able to brighten nasty grout, we cleaned and mopped the floors in our warehouse, and put this product to the test.
The application was very simple. After applying Grout Bully to several tiles, we followed directions and let it sit and dry. It was supposed to be two minutes, but we gave it five. Using the orange eraser sponge, I began to “clean” this As Seen On TV product off the tile. And yes, I use quotes on the word clean because while some of the product came off the floor, there was a distinct residue left over. I used the eraser side to try and get the goo off the floor to no avail. I even went a step further and wet the sponge, hoping it would remove the Grout Bully product off the floor. It wasn’t until I took a wet paper towel and scrubbed the floor that I was able to remove this product a bit better. The best way to describe it was that diaper cream or toothpaste had been rubbed into the tile. There was a film that wouldn’t quite remove.
The worst part to the whole ordeal? The grout wasn’t any better!
Overall, my experience with this product was not great. The only concession I will give is that we put Grout Bully to one of the hardest tests by using tile from the warehouse, but if a product claims to be able to brighten and clean tile, it ought to work there too. My advice would be to get a mop and just scrub your tile. It will save you some money and frustration by using this product.
