What is the best pruduct and method for cleanig the grout between bathroom tiles,

I have tried re-grouting but the muppet who put up the tiles did not space them so i cant remove the old grout without damaging the tiles, Any help would be much appreciated.

We recommend the use of a Steam Gun for cleaning dirty grout but if it's just a case of discolouration then you can get away with bleaching it.

Soda crystals work well too, just make up a strong solution, and it will clean the tiles at the same time, a scubbing brush helps with the grout.
