Can you paint tile grout?

Method 1 Staining Grout

  1. Choose a grout stain. Most often, people resort to dying their grout because it's lost its previous luster and now appears brown and dingy.
  2. Clean the tile and grout.
  3. Apply the grout stain.
  4. Add additional coats.
  5. Seal the grout.

Also, how do you paint shower grout? To use the paint, you just brush a small bit onto the grout lines with a toothbrush (of course, I used an old toothbrush, not a brand new one.) The paint will soak into the grout but won't soak into your tile. I found it worked best to let the paint dry a bit and then wipe off the excess.

Also to know is, how long does grout paint last?

The lifespan of grout paint depends on the product, how heavily the painted surface is used, and how well you maintain it. “Grout Renew treatment can last between five and eight years,” says Sole Alcaino, Senior Technical Service Specialist in the Care & Maintenance Division at Custom Building Products.

Do grout pens work?

It does work well, however some reviewers suggest it is not always successful at removing offending stains from the grout itself. Rainbow grout pens are completely safe and non-toxic because the ink has a water-based formula.
