{Going Green} : Homemade Grout Cleaner

It is no secret that we are moving.  Cleaning and moving go hand in hand.  Needless to say I have been doing a lot of cleaning.  One of the big areas that I wanted to tackle was the grout in our kitchen.  It is supposed to be light-colored, however years of stuff has darkened the grout.
