My bathroom tile is 20 yrs old and the grout has darkened over the years. I
just had about 5 % of the tiles re-grouted and the grout is white and
naturally is different than the original grout. Any suggestions how to make
them all look more alike - whiten the old grout or "dirty up" the new grout?
If I should try to whiten up the old grout, what products work best? (my
son-in-law said he read that the new Clorox pen is pretty good for the job).
Thanks in advance for any help.

I was watching "House Doctor" (love that show) the other day and they used a
":grout pen". It is the same as the grout colourant mentioned, but came in
an applicator that looked like a fat felt pen and put on an really even
