Bostik TruColor RapidCure grout, $90, from Selective Stone. Mildew, mold and muck — oh my! Getting rid of mold or mildew embedded in grout may seem like an impossible task. Luckily, there is always the option of starting over. “Remove the existing grout and reapply Bostik’s TruColor premixed urethane grout,” says Kevin Nip of Selective Stone. “This grout is water, stain and crack resistant, and mildew growth will be very minimal to none.”
