What's the best way to get my tile grout super WHITE?

I was going to try OxyClean... but I wondered if their was some sort of dirt busting acid or something. The nasty grout is making me crazy. Also, is there some kind of silicone sealer I can paint onto the grout after I've got it nice and white? Something to prevent the dirt from collecting in the grout again?

There is a new system out that is high pressure, high steam with little use of chemicals. It basically "blasts" the buildup away, and gets it deep clean instead of surface clean. After they are done... More

This is not fun! I hate cleaning grout. But I use ZEP tile and grout cleaner from Home Depot. To put a layer over the clean grout, I know this sounds crazy, use a little pledge over the whole surface. Just the walls though. Good luck!
