Grout gone orange

Asked by nicky watson from coventry: Hi I have sealed travertine tiles in my shower area. The tile grout has gone orange - how can I restore this to the original colour without damaging the tiles? Thanks.

TileProf says: Hi Nicky, Orange grout is caused by Soap and shampoo build up both of which are slightly Acidic so can cause a chemical reaction in the grout which is Acid Sensitive, rinsing off with water after showering will prevent this in future, but for now I would clean the Grout with Oxy-pro and then re-seal < when fully dry > with the sealer used originally.
