How to clean smoke stained grout lines.
 
Just purchased a new house where the previous owner smoked alot. The tile work in the bathroom is newer but much of the grout lines appear to be smoke stained. Just like most of the walls in the house. I've tried Mr. Clean and that did nothing. I also sprayed a mix of bleach and water. That kinda worked. Anyone know of anything that would do the trick. Thanks.

Castrol Super Clean will take nearly anything off of anything:)

Give it a try, Just don't let it sit too long before you get it off, It can "set" a stain if it dries.

Worth a try, sells for around $6.00 gallon here at Wal-Mart.

have you tried a baking soda & peroxide mix?

I hear a toothbrush is the tool for the job, with a bit of elbow grease :)
Good Luck!

PS-Let us know if it works!!!
