How to remove "grout" around top of tub

Discussion in 'Home Repair' started by William W. Plummer, Dec 16, 2004.

  1. A friend has a Jacuzzi tub with plastic insert "walls". The was mildew
    on the grout which she attempted to hide with some sort of quick-fix
    grout. The mildew now looks terrible and I want to get rid of it all
    and redo it. What can I use to clean it out but not hurt the tub? A
    sharp chisel might work. Are there solvents or cleaning chemicals?
    Dremel tool? Wire brush???

    There are grout removal tools. Go to the tile section of HD or Lowes. Dremel
    also makes a grout removal attachment.
