Bathtub Blues

All right, who out there has used a power steamer for cleaning? I just bought a hand held power steamer. I was hoping it would be able to get those horrible stains off the grout in the bathtub (that NOTHING else I've tried has taken off). Sadly, it did not work.

It's an awesome little machine with attachments for cleaning just about anything, but it doesn't look like it's going to help me much on this pain in the butt tub. It's one of those old porcelain tubs that stains are almost impossible to get out of. So far, the best thing I've found to use on it is the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. But even those don't get it totally white and I go through at least two of them.

I've tried Ajax, Borax, vinegar, Kaboom, Scrubbing Bubbles, and all the different homemade things on Pinterest I can find. Looks like for now I'll be sticking with the Magic Erasers.

Has anyone had luck using anything else?

I just read something that said baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice together work on just about anything. It didn't mention grout, but it's an inexpensive try. Good luck.
