Kiwi Shine and Protect Shoe Dye - £2:50ish x2 which has done the Kitchen and Bathroom, applied with a thin paint brush and gone over with a scourer.

I'd expect that the White trainer Kiwi Shine and Protect would be just as good for white grout.

I completed the Kitchen with Kiwi and then the bathroom with Cherry Blossom, which has required a touch up.

The Kiwi product is alot thicker than the Cherry Blossom product and seems to of adhered to the grout more permanently.
I've since mopped both kitchen and bathroom and there's no bleed.

Ultimately I suppose it's down to the brand/type of grout used, in my case I've no idea as I inherited the floor with the house move.

If i get any bleeding I'll update but I think I'll go over with a non gloss sealant if so.

I suppose it's not any different from those grout pens or a permanent marker :dunno:
Good for a cheap spruce-up none the less!

P.S. Wish I could fit a rocking chair in my bathroom :shock:
