Does it Work Wednesday: Grout Bully

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Roll on Grout Bully and renew, redesign and rejuvenate dirty or stained tile grout, but Does it Work?

Luke Wilson has wanted to freshen up his kitchen tile ever since his family moved into their home.  He donned the rubber gloves for us, and rolled this onto his tile.  Immediately, we see the white Grout Bully covers up his dark grout, but it's also a goopy mess.  It smears all over the place even after we follow the directions and wait the proper drying time.

We also decide to use the manufacturer's suggestion of waiting for it to dry several days to "cure."  Luke took pictures and reported back saying he and his wife are pleased with the brightened "look" from a distance, but say when you get up-close, it's not a good finish.  They would not recommend this product for any long-term cleaning or home renovations. 

"Don't give it anything over a 'D'.  It doesn't work half as well as it's advertised on TV, especially the clean-up," said Luke.

He was pleased one $13 bottle covered most of the tile in his kitchen and a hallway, but said he'll have to use good old-fashioned "elbow grease", tile grout cleaner and a wire brush to properly clean and brighten his tile grout.

Grout Bully isn't tough enough to pass the Does it Work test, earning a D.
