Travertine is a durable tile option used on floors in many homes and commercial buildings. The travertine is trimmed with grout, which gives a finished overall look to the floor area. Grout itself is easy to clean, but when you have travertine you simply need to use a cleaning solution that keeps both the travertine and the grout from becoming discoloured. Chlorine bleach is a common cleaning agent, but is a main culprit in discolouration so should always be avoided for this cleaning task.

Things you need
- Nylon scrub brush or toothbrush
- Stone cleaner or dish soap
Fill a bucket with hot water.
Spray either stone cleaner onto the grout, or drizzle a light coat of dish soap over the grout.
Dip either a nylon scrub brush or an old toothbrush into the water and scrub over the grout. Using the toothbrush is best if you have thin grout lines.
Continue until you clean all grout. Both the stone soap and dish soap are safe for the travertine tile as well, so do not worry when the cleaning solution makes contact with the travertine.
Rinse a mop with clean water. Twist the mop out and wipe over the entire floor to collect excess cleaning solution. Let the travertine and grout air dry.
