Original color of the grout i used is very light beige. After a couple of wks it turned very dark green almost blackish. Are there any grouts on the market that doesn't stain and don't cost me an arm and a leg. ?

Try a light mixture of bleach and water first.

try this mixture, home made 7 cups water- 1/2 cup baking soda-1/3 cup limon juice-1/4 cup vinegar - put in spray bottle spray on and mop up or i guess if you have a carpet cleaner with a good vaccum on it use that or course you aren't going to drench the grout but get it wet , and mop and let dry good luck

I hate using these homemade solutions because I have no idea what the right ratios are..so I leave it to the pros. I use Hoover Grout Plus and it's always worked for me. Find out more here: reviews of the best grout cleaners
